Power bank shipping regulations

Sending a power bank by courier or post can be carried out by private individuals and authorised resellers if the device complies 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 sea. Additionally, shipping damaged power bank batteries by air is not allowed.

When shipping a power bank or portable charger overseas, make sure that lithium batteries are safely enclosed inside the device and keep the battery charge to a maximum of 30%. The relevant transport recommendations for every device model can be found in the product information sheet of the manufacturer.

For items shipped outside the EU or between two non-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 customs officers.

For extra protection, we also offer additional insurance options at very low rates.
Always keep the original invoice of the power bank you are shipping overseas, as it serves as proof of its value. This document will be required by the courier company in case you decide to start a claim procedure for damage or loss.
Please consider that the insurance may not be valid when shipping used or second-hand devices internationally.
