    Do what he said. Read through the Buyers/Sellers forum(button also at the top of the page).

    Scrap laptop batteries are shipped whole in their original plastic case. You MUST cover the connector on the battery with tape. The buyers will charge you if they have to put tape on the connectors. Also ground shipping is normal for li-ion batteries.

    Keep reading the old and new threads to learn more that you don't know. 73, Mike

    exactly what they said...LEAVE them in the casing. YOU MUST tape the terminals...if 2 touch and short circuit they will start a VERY VERY hot fire (li-ion ones). It is SUPER important to do that for everyone safety, and a must when shipping.
    PROFIT is made when you BUY/ACQUIRE NOT when you sell
