Transport

Transportation of Mastervolt Gel and AGM batteries

Mastervolt Gel and AGM batteries are considered non-spillable batteries. This means that

they are exempt from Dangerous Goods Regulations which cover transport by road, rail,

sea freight or air. This way they can be sent to any destination in the world quickly and

relatively cheaply.

Transportation of Mastervolt Lithium Ion batteries

Extra care is to be taken for proper transport of Lithium Ion batteries. Mastervolt’s Lithium

Ion batteries and their packaging have undergone all the required safety testings as

prescribed by the United Nations and the transport authorities (both road, rail, sea and

air) to achieve this. Below you will find the technical details of what this means.

The Mastervolt Lithium Ion batteries have been tested according to the UN Handbook

of Tests and Criteria, part III, sub section 38.3 (ST/SG/AC.10/11/Rev.5). For transport the

batteries belong to the category UN3480, Class 9, Packaging Group II and have to be

transported according to this regulation. This means that for land and sea transport (ADR,

RID & IMDG) they have to be packed according to packaging instruction P903 and for air

transport (IATA) according to packaging instruction P965.

The original packaging of the Mastervolt Lithium Ion batteries satisfies these instructions.
