- Lithium Batteries
Updated by Cory M.
In many cases Lithium Batteries or items containing Lithium-Ion Batteries are allowed to ship to certain countries by ground or air without full hazmat regulation. When a product falls under a Lithium Battery exemption for dangerous goods you should assign the product to a Regulation with the "Lithium Batteries (IATA Section II)" exception type.
Create a Lithium Battery Regulation
- Navigate to Catalog > Regulations and click Create New Regulation.
- Enter the information as described in the Regulations article.
- Set the Air / Ground Exception Type as Lithium Batteries (IATA Section II) according to the appropriate regulations. This will add two extra fields at the bottom of the form.
- Select the Lithium Battery Material.
- Lithium Ion refers to those which are rechargeable and commonly used with cellphones, drones, and other light-weight compact devices.
Lithium Ion Battery Example:
- Lithium Metal refers to the material that makes up non-rechargeable batteries such as a standard Duracell or Energizer battery.
Lithium Metal Battery Example:
- Select the Lithium Battery Packing type:
- Contained in Equipment would include those battery products that are shipped within a device, such as a cellphone or tablet PC.
- Packed with Equipment would be products that package batteries along with the product but not within a device.
- Standalone refers to the batteries themselves without other equipment.
- Click Save Regulation
Select the Lithium Battery Regulation
- Begin by setting up a product.
- When the Goods Type must be selected, the user must specify the product as Dangerous Goods/Hazardous Materials. This will make an additional tab appear named Dangerous Goods.
- Navigate to the Dangerous Goods tab and select the appropriate Regulation.
