The Cas-Ker Company will no longer ship Lithium Ion or Lithium Metal batteries(which includes all capacitors) Next Day or Second Day UPS or FedEx. All former lithium shipment methods other than UPS Ground will be shipped UPS Ground effective immediately.
UPS has mandated these changes as well as the U.S Department of Transportation. These batteries and capacitors are no longer permitted on passenger planes and UPS has said that they are changing to keep their employees safe as well.
The Cas-Ker Company understands that this will complicate your future ordering procedures for these items but we ask you to consider placing larger orders for these batteries and capacitors when you order your normal supplies to offset the cost for the UPS ground shipments. We have consulted with Energizer and they have advised us that the average shelf life for their Lithium cells is between 5 and 8 years. Capacitors do not have a charge until you charge them in the watch and they also have an extended shelf life.
We appreciate your cooperation in this matter and look forward to servicing your future needs.
