With changes to the IATA DGR for 2013, Maxim products containing lithium metal button cells are no longer required to use the battery handling label based on Packing Instruction 970 "Additional Requirements – Section II"
"Each package containing more than four cells or more than two batteries installed in equipment must be labeled with a lithium battery handling label ..., except for button cell batteries installed in equipment (including circuit boards);"
There are a limited number of our evaluation kits that contain a Lithium-Ion type battery ("re-chargeable" per IATA) which are compliant to IATA DGR for 2013 requirements for UN3481, Packing Instruction 967 Section II, batteries in equipment. See the listing below of Maxim products containing these batteries.
If you have additional questions about our products containing batteries, please send an email request to BatteryCompliance@maximintegrated.com.
Consult the latest version of IATA Dangerous Goods Regulation for complete requirements when shipping batteries in equipment.
