Since I get my mail at a military base overseas, i need to know...does this policy change mean I can't get a battery from you to my APO mailbox?
It appears that they are banning all Lithium Batteries... At first I thought it was Lithium Metal which already has the strictest rules and already banned, because they are in fact dangerous ... but they also say lithium ion so I will have to do a bit more digging. We ship internationally everyday using USPS because of it low rate. Nothing has every come back and no mail has been opened. We package according to PI 965 but this may not work any longer this could be unfortunate.
