What are the transport limitations for shipping Nickel-based and Lithium-Based Batteries?

Nickel-based batteries have no transport limitations, however, certain precautionary measures need to be considered in packaging to prevent electrical shorts. If there is danger of an electrical short, each Nickel-based battery needs to be individually wrapped in a plastic bag.

Lithium-based batteries shipped in bulk must meet transportation regulations, which apply to domestic and international shipments by land, sea and air. Nearly all lithium batteries are required to pass section 38.3 of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria (UN Transportation Testing) to ensure the safety during shipping.
