(Can Lithium Battery Charger be shipped as UN3481 Lithium ion battery contained in equipment? )

Q.
We have a shipment of Lithium Battery Charger. Can we ship them as UN3481 Lithium ion battery contained in equipment?  (31 Oct 15)

A.
No. As clearly written in PI 967 in the Introduction section: “For the purpose of this packing instruction, “equipment” means the device or apparatus for which the lithium cells or batteries will provide electrical power for its operation.”, a battery charger does not rely electric power from the lithium battery. It is used to charge the lithium battery. For additional information, the same clause appears in PI 966, PI 969 and PI 970.
