    Below are the requirements to ship lithium batteries using the USPS. UPS requires a "Dangerous Goods Contract". FedEx has limits and requirements based on capacity. So how have forum sellers shipped batteries or complete boards?

    USPS Standards for Domestic Shipments Containing Lithium Batteries

    • Each cell cannot contain more than 1 gram of lithium
    • Each battery cannot contain more than 2 grams of lithium
    • All packages must contain a complete return address
    • For non-installed batteries, your package must have a DOT-approved lithium battery mark (UN3090)
    Standards for Shipping Installed Batteries

    • Installed batteries must be protected from short circuit
    • Devices with batteries must have protection to prevent accidentally being powered-on
    • Equipment must be cushioned
