The item purchased came with a label stating “LITHIUM BATTERIES - FORBIDDEN FOR TRANSPORT ABOARD AIRCRAFT AND VESSEL". The item has a 56 v 2.0 AH lithium ion battery. I know it cannot ship via air but I don't understand the regulation for forbidding the shipment via ocean. Can you please provide some insight. Thank you

There are numerous restrictions regarding the shipment of of Lithium Ion batteries. We recommend checking directly with a potential carrier to see which rules and regulations they require/ adhere to. Also, as EGO is available internationally, it might be easier to purchase locally rather than sending. Where are you looking for your batteries to end up?
