Submission + - USPS to Ban International Shipping on Lithium Ion Powered Gadgetry->

sl4shd0rk writes: Apparently the USPS is enacting a ban on the international shipment of all devices containing Litihium Ion batteries. The ban is expected to lift in January of 2013. Seems like this should drive more business away from the already floundering USPS financal situation. Although TFA focuses on the shipment of items _out_ of the US, I would surmise the same ban will apply to purchasing these items on Ebay from overseas sources.
