Lithium battery update from Germany to the U.S.

If you are confused about whether you can or cannot receive a lithium battery-powered electronic device through the  mail, join the crowd.

The U.S. Postal System announced  Nov. 15 that it would once again accept packages of electronic devices with lithium batteries bound for international destinations.

But as of Nov. 26, Germany had not agreed to lift the ban, according to military postal officials.

While you may not be able to receive an item containing a lithium battery, you can mail such items to the States via military mail.

The May 16 ban, issued by the International Civil Aviation Authority, applies to commercial aircraft.

Commercial aircraft are used to move U.S. mail bound for Army Post Offices in Germany. However, mail headed to the U.S. from Germany is transported in military aircraft.

When mailing electronic devices to the U.S., postal customers are reminded that a CMR address cannot be used as a return address. They must use a valid stateside address instead, different from the address of the recipient.

For further instructions, visit your Army Post Office.

AAFES offers solution to lithium battery ban

In response to the U.S. Postal Service ban on international shipments of electronics with lithium batteries, the Army and Air Force Exchange Service now has a way for overseas shoppers to get those devices in time for the holidays.

Approximately 80 products (cameras, tablets, watches and other electronics) can be ordered online and picked up at Exchanges in Afghanistan, Europe, Guam, Japan, Korea and Kuwait, according to AAFES officials. Exchange shoppers can go to www. shopmyexchange.com, select a product with a “Lithium Ship to Store” logo, and choose the country and Exchange where they would like the item to be delivered.

The shopper will be contacted via email when the order arrives. Orders may be picked up at the customer service desk with a valid ID and a copy of the email/order number confirmation.
