What are the shipping restrictions for orders containing batteries?

As of 2016, new Federal lithium-ion battery shipping regulations limit the shipping methods and delivery destination availability for orders containing lithium-ion batteries. Due to these restrictions, we can only ship lithium-ion batteries via our Standard shipping method, which does not have a guaranteed delivery date. We are working with our carriers to improve package transit times. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Please review the following information about the shipping methods we offer to learn how these may impact your repairs.

Standard Shipping

We are required to indicate that your package contains a lithium-ion battery for safe transport and handling. This can cause irregular tracking updates and delays while in transit, and this method is not guaranteed to arrive by the estimated date shown during checkout. We apologize for the inconvenience if your order is affected by delays.

At this time, we are only able to ship lithium-ion batteries domestically within the contiguous United States (lower 48 states). iFixit Customer Support will contact you if your order needs to be modified after it is placed.

We are unable to ship lithium-ion batteries to the following destinations:
  • U.S. Armed Forces – Americas
  • U.S. Armed Forces – Europe
  • U.S. Armed Forces – Pacific
  • Alaska
  • American Samoa
  • Federated States of Micronesia
  • Guam
  • Hawaii
  • Marshall Islands
  • Northern Mariana Islands
  • Palau
  • Puerto Rico
  • Virgin Islands
