Chinese Ingenuity: Who says I can’t ship Lithium Batteries?

I ordered the extended Li-Ion battery for the Baofeng UV-5R to enhance it’s utility in long range wilderness expectations.

I also ordered it in red cuz red is way more bad-ass.

When it came, I noticed that the parcel had the label that said “NiMH battery ONLY no Lithium” and thought to myself, “Heh the Chinese always skirting customs and shipping regulations.” But when I opened up the envelope, I was shocked to see that the battery was in fact labeled Ni-MH.

Mysterious.

A closer inspection revealed that the Chinese (clever as ever) had simply stuck a label that said Ni-MH right over the Li-Ion label directly below.

Heh.

Bastards.

I really do appreciate this little bit of shipping sass.
