    Batteries

    Advertisements
    Hi,
    My boyfriend's phone broke which has all of his music on it, so I was thinking of buying him a portable CD player since you can't mail lithium batteries. My question is, does anyone know if regular AA batteries have any lithium in them?

    If i'm not mistaken normal batteries like AA or AAA Duracell are alkaline based batteries so you should be okay sending those! Lithium is generally used for more specific purchases such as cell phones, computers and kindles etc!

    YOU aren't supposed to mail them, but I believe stores can, such as amazon, etc.

    If you put batteries on the custom form, there's a good chance they'll make you take them out.

    So, should I send the CD player and mail him batteries through Amazon, OR should I just put the batteries in the CD player and not include them on the custom form?

    Just mail them and don't claim them on the customs form I sent DB something with a lithium battery too no prob. But I didn't know you aren't supposed to! Probably would have sent it anyway
