Battery ban

Hi good people of HK.
We are experiencing issues with the freighting of lithium composite batteries into New Zealand with airlines refusing to carry LI-Po batteries. Does HobbyKing have an alternative shipping method to deliver the said batteries legally into New Zealand?

Many thanks and kindest regards.

    @Mamba01 There is an issue getting batteries into NZ. It is being investigated.

    You can order Batteries form the Australian Warehouse and they will get to you by boat. A little slower than you would like but it works.

    About 4-6 weeks to NZ from HK Aus. Freight cost approx $14-$17ish.
    Its worth it , still alot cheaper than anywhere else.
    Buy 3 or 4 and the freight cost is no big deal, or find some friends to want batts , to split the freight costs.
