As of May 16, 2012, USPS has changed part of their mailing rules and standards. Lithium batteries and cells (both rechargeable and non-rechargeable) are now not allowed to be shipped internationally or to any APO, FPO, and DPO locations. This means that mailers also cannot send out products that have lithium batteries inside of them, including tech gadgets such as cell phones, MP3 players, laptops, and digital camera.
After January 1, 2013, limited quantities may be allowed to ship out internationally, as long as "the batteries are properly installed in the personal electronic devices they are intended to operate."
This does not affect the current rules for mailing lithium products within the United States, and lithium batteries (and their corresponding technical products) may still be shipped out normally. However, for international shipping, mailers may have to resort to private carriers such as FedEx.

Some of you may remember HP starting an HP laptop battery recall in May of 2009. The Consumer Safety Products Commission helped recall roughly 70,000 units affecting various HP laptop models between 2007 and 2008.
And in case you weren't around for that, perhaps you witnessed the expansion of that same recall back in May of 2010, which threw even more HP laptops on the bad-list. No? Well then, here's a doozie for ya...
Just last month (oh look, another May), HP expanded that same recall from 2009. If your device or battery bar code is on the list below, you may want to contact HP...just in case.
That, or wait until next year's likely recall. 3rd time's a charm, right?
