Ultralife’s UBI-2590 batteries are used by militaries and consumers across the globe, making ease-of-shipment by air vital.
Air Transportation Regulations
Since April 2016, Lithium-ion batteries that are offered for transport by air and which are packed by themselves (i.e. not contained in or packed with equipment) are required to be shipped at a state-of-charge not exceeding 30% of their rated design capacity. Failure to comply with these regulations can lead to a fine or imprisonment.
Compatible smart batteries are:
Non-smart UBI-2590 batteries can also be charged but not automatically to 30%.
Air and other transportation regulations are subject to change at any time. Be sure to check with your shipping provider before sending.
Ultralife recommends that, after the battery has reached its destination (at 20 percent state-of-charge), it is charged to 100 percent before storing it or before use.
