How to ship electronics with batteries?

Regulations on shipping laptops and other lithium battery-powered gadgets

Shipping electronics internationally or across the country is perfectly legal both for private individuals and for authorized resellers if the devices comply with the requirements below.

Items containing attached, non-removable lithium-ion batteries can be sent by all modes of transport, provided they comply with the parameters outlined in the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria:

Single-cell batteries:
No more than 2 cells, ≤ 20Wh

Multi-cell batteries:
No more than 4 cells, ≤ 100Wh

Devices with lithium batteries exceeding the above specifications cannot be transported by air but can be carried by road or travel by sea. These restrictions do not apply to older gadgets powered by nickel-cadmium (NiCad) and nickel-metal hybrid (NiMH) batteries.
Batteries of any kind must always be transported and shipped inside the device. All other relevant battery charge and other transportation recommendations for every gadget model can be found in the manufacturer’s product information sheet.

For electronic devices sent overseas by courier between non-EU member states, a customs declaration will be required. Do not try to lower the value of imported goods, otherwise, the package may be seized by the customs officers. Check all the details in advance.
