Safely Ship Damaged or Recalled Lithium Batteries


SupplyPak Damaged, Defective or Recalled Lithium Battery Packaging

Lithium cells or batteries, that have been damaged or identified by the manufacturer as being defective for safety reasons, that have the potential of producing a dangerous evolution of heat, fire, or short circuit (e.g. those being returned to the manufacturer for safety reasons) may be transported by highway, rail or vessel only, but must be packaged a certain way to meet safety regulations.

Lithium Batteris must NOT be disposed of as normal trash.  Damaged batteries could contaminate the area and require expensive cleanup.
