Default Shipping Packs Internationally?

I've got 4 packs that I tried to ship...USPS says it's a hazardous material and they won't do it.

How do I ship them short of lying on the customs form?

Maybe try another one? UPS, Fedex, DHL

It'll probably cost more though

Batteries aren;t hazardise but some counrties won;t allow them to be shipped into them, It may be the country not the carrier, I worked as a Mail man in the Navy. There are so many rules for international shipping it is sick. I would agree go to another carrier. That should work, I would go onto USPS's website and see if you can ship batteries to that country.

Here: http://pe.usps.gov/text/imm/immc1_toc.html
look up the county you are shipping to and see there restictions.
Hope this helps,

Yes, depends on the country....

Also: USPS is VERY strange about that.....

I was in line one time listening to a guy argue that an empty collectable zippo lighter poses no risk....

They stood by it and said it did and wouldn't ship it...

Also, a lot of it has to do with the person at the USPS desk....

Some are not the friendliest<sp> people and have thier own rules they like to follow somewhat.

Also, maybe label it as as "DRY CELLS"
not a battery.

A battery is made up of more than one cell, if they are not connected, it's not a battery....
But, several cells!
