Lithium-ion Batteries

With recent lithium-ion battery incidents raising many questions, regulations regarding transportation of Lithium Ion batteries are once again under the magnifying glass. Airlines appear to either be imposing new restrictions or implementing stricter controls even for lithium batteries contained in equipment. There is also the issue of restrictions and requirements in shipping Lithium Ion batteries by courier.

The following downloadable certificates cover most dive torches sold online by www.dirdirect.com or in the store at Underwater Explorers (Portland, Dorset, UK). We're serious about the quality of our primary lights as much as safety.

These documents confirm Halcyon primary torches sold by Underwater Explorers (also trading as DirDirect) conform to current legislation and meet the requirements of the applicable tests under the Transport of Dangerous Goods, UN Manual of Tests and Criteria Part 3, Sub-section 38.3. Each certification also contains the required EC Declaration of Conformity for these batteries to be sold within the European Community comfirming their compliance with the EU Battery Directive 2006/66/EC.

You do not always need to carry these documents with you although manufacturers do need to have the required tests conducted and the certifications to prove these tests have been carried out as well as having an EC Declaration of Conformity. If you are in doubt but travelling with your torch, you can take a copy of the appropriate certification.
