USPS To Stop Shipping Electronics with Li-Ion Batteries Internationally

Lithium batteries power many personal electronic devices and have been found to be volatile in certain situations (e.g. improper storage) — they destroy an estimated one US cargo jet every other year. Of course, not everybody trusts USPS to ship their international packages as it is, and this latest development should lead to increased business for private companies like UPS and Fedex.
