Can't order a PSP Battery...

  • ebondefender Friday, September 1, 2017 8:15 AM Reply

    Hi, I'm trying to order the following product for my old, "fat" PSP 1001


    http://www.dx.com/p/3-6v-3600mah-li-ion-battery-for-psp-1000-black-240252#.WaimlP6Wy1s


    However, I keep getting a message saying: "Due to new airline safety regulations announced by the ICAO, shipping of “pure power” products to your shipping address is not allowed. SKU:240252" I live in the USA, what's 'hazardous' about a simple battery being sent? Is there any way aroud this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you been living in a cave somewhere? There have been loads of news reports and videos of Li-ion batteries catching fire and/or exploding. Click the link below. vv

    NO! I don't know why DX screwed up the site so badly.

    @Maye_Tao, thank you. I'll check it out.


    @gasbag11, no need to be impolite about it. A cave? No. Night shift in a very dangerous field in which I am familiar with actual hazardous materials? Yeah. Also the last time I've ever had *any* battery explode in my hand was years back in my old Game Boy. I think they were Ni-Cads. It still works, I still have both hands. :) I've ordered batteries from too, so I guess I'll go check there.

    Your use of the term "actual hazardous materials" suggests that you do not consider Li-ion batteries a "real" hazard. If that is the case, your safety training needs some up-dating. Li-ion batteries are a relatively new source of hazard and probably most people are not aware of how dangerous a problem they can cause. One of the articles in gasbag11's link reports that an incident (smoke, fire or explosion) at airports or on board flights occurs on average once every 10 days and is on the increase.

    As you work in a hazardous environment and understand the risks associated with it, I'm sure if you were confronted with statistics like that, you would take the situation seriously and lessen the odds of catastrophe as much as possible.

    I still find it very hard to believe that you haven't heard about Li-ion battery problems!


    A few months ago, kids hoverboards (Li-ion cells) were catching fire and on the news almost every other day. The same for cellphones (Li-ion cells) (Samsung Galaxy S7 for one) and vaping devices (Li-ion cells) catching fire/exploding in people's pockets or purses causing some serious burns to some people. Hence my "cave" reference. 


    Most airlines refuse to take them now, but you can order from places that ship by ground.

    Something weird going on here.


    From the OP's 2nd post. > I've ordered batteries from too, so I guess I'll go check there.


    From my email for the same post. > I've ordered batteries from Amazon too, so I guess I'll go check there.


    Who deleted Amazon and why? Obviously not the OP. If mentioning it is no longer allowed, we should be told.
