The FARO batteries are lithium-ion batteries and are thus classified as dangerous goods. When transporting or shipping the FARO batteries, ensure that you observe all applicable local and international rules and regulations. For further information, contact your local carrier before transportation or shipping.
For lithium-ion batteries with less than 100 Wh energy content, an exemption is provided that allows you to carry such a battery without further paperwork. The maximum battery energy a single person can carry is 200 Wh.
Ensure that the total energy content of all batteries that any individual person carries is less than 200 Wh, and that no single battery has more than 100 Wh energy content. Review currently applicable national and international regulations for the transport of Li-On batteries, and also verify with your airline or freight company in advance.
The battery has been tested and passed section 38.3 of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria (UN Transportation Testing) as required by the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (2016), Section 188.8.131.52. The battery is below the 100 Wh limit for transportation on passenger planes. For the purposes of air transportation, the battery is classed as “Packed with equipment” (ICAO/IATA Packing Instruction 966, Section II) – Cells or batteries contained in a package with associated electronic equipment. Special rules may apply to the transportation of spare batteries. It is recommended that you check with your local air transportation safety authority and/or the proposed air carrier for specific requirements on lithium battery transportation.
Never ship a damaged battery by air transportation.
