Lithium Batteries

Lithium batteries have become a preferred energy source for a wide variety of consumer goods such as mobile telephones, toys, electric bikes, etc. Though widely used, most persons are not aware of the fact that these batteries are dangerous goods and could represent a safety risk if not properly prepared for transport in accordance with transport standards. The transport regulations applicable to the lithium batteries may be difficult to handle for companies and individuals who are not familiar with the handling of dangerous goods.
