Lithium batteries have become the preferred energy source to power a wide variety of consumer goods ranging from mobile phones to children’s toys to e-bikes. Though widely used, most people are not aware that lithium batteries are dangerous goods which require special consideration and can pose a safety risk if not prepared and transported in compliance with the transport regulations.
