OK, so there is a product I want to order from Australia that has a Lithium-Ion battery
however the online retailer can't air freight it to NZ due to safety restrictions with Lithium batteries and air freight. I understand that.
However, what are the actual regulations surrounding this issue?
Surely heaps of people pack their laptops into their check-in baggage which ends up in the luggage hold. And everyone has their phone on them while in the cabin, so I'm just a bit confused about these regulations.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for making flying as safe as possibly, but just curious about the seemingly ambiguous nature of this rule.
Actually, come to think of it, when I ordered my Kindle (which has a Lithium-Polymer battery), it got here pretty quickly which means it would've had to have been air freighted.
I'm sure there are valid reasons, just curious to know if anyone knows the exact details.
Thanks in advance for any input!!
