What are the shipping restrictions for orders containing batteries?

As of January 1st, 2017 new lithium-ion battery shipping regulations limit the shipping methods and delivery destination availability for orders containing batteries. Please review the following warnings for each shipping option we offer. We are working with our carriers to improve battery transit times. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Standard Shipping

Federal lithium-ion battery shipping regulations require us to indicate that your package contains lithium-ion batteries, for safe transport and handling. This may cause additional inspection and processing delays on the part of the shipping carriers. The majority of orders shipped via Standard shipping are not impacted by such delays.

If your order contains a battery actual transit time may differ from the estimated delivery date shown at checkout. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Many domestic orders within the contiguous US may only be shipped via Standard shipping. iFixit is no longer able to ship batteries internationally or outside the contiguous US at this time.

At this time, we are only able to ship batteries domestically within the contiguous United States excluding the US territories listed below. iFixit Customer Support will contact you if your order needs to be modified after it is placed.
