no lithium in the air

... by air actually. Well, I just learnt of this today.

For some reason called “International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Technical Instructions for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air” or whatever it means, Australia Post will no long accepting any lithium batteries or lithium battery powered devices by air. You can still post lithium batteries in the mail by road transport only service.

For detail, please refer to Customer guidelines for posting lithium batteries (Australia Post, PDF)

Aircraft passengers are still allowed to carry lithium batteries and lithium battery powered devices when carried by passengers or crew for personal use.

For regular AA batteries, I tend to go for just alkaline. Don is into Lithium batteries. According to study, Lithium batteries do last longer than alkaline, but cost a lot more.

from iTunes Store:
How do they intend that you ship lithium batteries to or out of the country, then?
Well, I only buy disposable lithium batteries (these) when I run out of rechargeables while traveling.
