This are a pain in the rear. I have the local shipping restrictions rep on speed dial on my phone and I check in every month to make sure I am not missing anything. They did change it so we can ship to APO's. I guess they figured it is impossible to not ship something with a battery to our soldiers! No laptops, cell phones, camera, electric razors, electric toothbrush and so on!
I do pay alot of attention to this as I am an airline pilot and this does DIRECTLY affect the safety of MY flights! I am kinda caught in the middle as a pilot. Our union, ALPA is lobbying for tougher restrictions, and as a battery distributer I am hoping for reasonable and sensible regulation. We will see what happens!
