Fedex will charge $136 with battery while USPS will charge $47 without battery. This is a good business for FedEx while USPS will probably lose out in the long run. I dont think FedEx will do a lot of super extra steps to minimize battery hazzard during shipment to justify the extra cost.

Strangely, other US website such as the bluenook (wasabi battery) can send battery overseas at low cost (only $26). Probably they have warehouse outside US.
