About UN38.3
What is UN38.3 for?
Answer: UN38.3 is for those who need to ship Lithium Batteries, include lithium ion, LiFePO4 and Lithium Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide batteries. Without UN38.3 test, you can not ship by air, ground or sea.
Question: How to lithium battery prototype.
Answer: For prototype, you must ship by ground, class 9 category. Please refer 49 CFR 173.185(e)
Do you do UN38.3 test for our own battery pack, which is not manufactured by BatterySpace.com ?
Answer: Yes, we do provide UN38.3 test service. Please download our Quotation Request Form. So we can provide quotation.
