LiPo Shipping

Lithium cells and batteries, no matter how small, are treated as dangerous goods by Royal Mail and other carriers. The rules are that Lithium based cells and batteries:

  • cannot be sent via airmail
  • can be sent via UK post in small quantities if the package also contains an electronic device (e.g. receiver or ESC) that uses the cells
  • cannot be sent via UK post on their own
Orders containing LiPo cells that do not meet the above restrictions can still be sent via a ground service to UK mainland destinations. The cost of this service for a small parcel to U.K. mainland destinations (not Northern Ireland or Channel Islands) is £9.60 (incl VAT).

For UK destinations, we will contact you by email to explain the additional shipping cost. The alternative is to add an ESC or receiver to your order which then allows us to send it, suitably labeled, via Royal Mail.

The cost to destinations outside the U.K. is variable and calculated based on weight and package size. Lithium cells and batteries cannot be sent to destinations outside western Europe.

We use the Paypal shopping cart and this does not allow us to identify prohibited items by customer address so, if you place an order on-line that does not meet the Royal Mail rules for Lithium batteries, we will contact you by email to request the additional cost for sending your order by courier. If you subsequently decide that the shipping cost is too high and cancel your order, any non-recoverable transaction charges or fees will be deducted from the refunded amount.

Please contact us if you wish to know the exact shipping cost before placing an order.
