Lithium Polymer Battery Shipment Guide

Due to a change in the regulations handed down by the International Air Transport Association, stand-alone LiPo batteries (such as those found in our range) can no longer be sent on aircraft that also carry passengers

Thus we can still import LiPo batteries into Australia, as UPS or DHL aircraft are cargo-only. (But what about the pilots?)

However - we can no longer send orders containing LiPo batteries via Express Post within Australia, as a lot of Express Post mail is carried by QF passenger flights. And we can no longer export orders containing LiPo batteries outside Australia - as we cannot determine if the outbound carrier uses cargo-only flights.

We're still working on an automated order-limiting system, so from now on:

  • Orders for Australian addresses that contain LiPo batteries must be sent via Parcel Post. Please select $8 shipping in the checkout.
  • If you select Express Post we will downgrade the shipping and refund the balance back to your method of payment ... however if we can confirm Express Post will be sent via road transport (e.g. to metro Melbourne) we will still send via Express Post.
  • International orders contaning LiPo batteries will have them removed and the balance sent as normal.
