Amainhobbies new Lipo policies

"Lithium batteries cannot be shipped internationally via USPS; shipping more than 2 internationally is now subject to HAZMAT fees"

this makes my order go from 2$ to 62$ for one tiny 1s lipo.


any good international store that sells good 1s lipos litk this one (HK, nanotech 1s disappointed me)

It's been illegal to ship lipos USPS to international destinations for almost a year:

If AMainHobbies has been doing they have been breaking US law. You'll need to find a non-US vendor to order from probably.

13 RTF V929's containing LiPo's from BangGood met the International standards, and then hence met the USA domestic standards traveling via USPS. No Problem. 16 LiPo's from Hobbypartz delivered via UPS .. No Problem, (to/from California)

Perhaps I mis-understood your post, but I checked with USPS and I can re-ship V929's domestically via USPS .. again .. No Problem .. except the $15.70 per each cost

There are TWO distinct regulations .. covered extensively in another thread. The only thing they have in common, is that batteries are Not to be installled .. like your camera from Japan, and "quantity" .. per parcel. "Quantity" is calculated differently for the two standards.

Cheers ..

What the heck are you babbling about. The original poster is in Columbia and wanted a battery shipped from the US to him. That's INTERNATIONAL! Why are you ranting about domestic shipping when we are all talking international? We know you can ship domestic.
