Shipping Lithium Batteries - PLEASE READ THIS SO YOU CAN SAVE $$$ ON SHIPPING.
Because of the potential volatile nature of lithium batteries shipping laws for batteries have changed. If you purchase Lithium batteries it is most economical to have them shipped in a separate order. Why? Most freight companies like UPS, DHL, Fedex will not ship large Lithium batteries OR will only ship them by sea or expedited air freight. With expedited air the good thing is that the batteries do not weigh very much the costs is reasonable. You expedited parcel will also arrive quickly.
If you plan to buy Lithium batteries then plan to purchase a quantity at one time and make the battery purchase a separate purchase. By doing this you will share the high initial shipping costs over many batteries and it will actually be cheaper per battery. Maybe get a pool of friends together and place a larger battery order. Depending on the battery quantity and type HobbiPro may be able to freight these to you FREE OF CHARGE or at a very reduced rate.
So, to minimise your freight costs ALWAYS purchase your Lithium batteries in a separate order.
