    So after having rebuilt my HV battery I have 24 decent modules I want to sell. My local craiglist isn't working out so I guess I'll move on to Ebay and this means I'll have to ship them. Has anybody here had experience shipping these in the mail? What sorts of packaging, and are there any specific things I need to do to ship a battery like this? How much did it cost you to ship one module?
    As far as I can tell from my cursory web search, the NiMH batteries are safe to ship and not considered hazardous. But I though it'd be a good idea from someone who's actually done it. Thanks!

    IIRC, when I bought modules off ebay, one was shipped in a USPS mailing envelope with bubble wrap and another in a box also rolled up in bubble wrap. Technically, I think you need a LiOn battery warning sticker on it or at the very least a hazardous material warning.
