Proper Packaging of Lithium Batteries

Step 1

Either tape terminals of each battery with clear tape or package each individual battery inside of a plastic zipper bag as shown. 
Make certain tape is securely attached when taping. Only place one (1) battery per bag, and carefully seal each bag when using bag method.

Step 2

Gently place the taped batteries or sealed bags inside of a box. 
Once the box is full, securely seal the box with packing tape.

Step 3

Palletize the boxes for transport.

Place the boxes on pallets. It is okay to stack them four (4) levels high.

Secure the boxes to the pallet with shrink wrap.

Make sure that the wrap connects to the bottom of the pallet as well as the boxes.

If you only wrap the boxes, there is a chance of the load sliding off of the pallets during transport.

We recommend a minimum of 2 layers of shrink wrap around the entire surface area.

Please keep the pallet weight between 2,000lbs-2,500lbs.

Step 4

Place one (1) “LITHIUM BATTERY STICKER” on the TOP of each wrapped pallet. Electronic copies provided for your convenience.
