 ( figuerres, there are not problems shipping laptops with connected batteries. )

Fedex makes us clearly label any box we ship that contains Li-ion. Additionally, every laptop we've purchased comes brand new in the box (also Li-ion labeled) with the battery in a plastic bag separate from the laptop. According to the shipping company, we're supposed to do the same when we ship laptops back out.
