I was just at the post office in Houston shipping a package to Florida 
and they asked me there were any lithium batteries in the package. I 
said no and asked why. The postal worker said they no longer take 
packages with lithium batteries unless they are in a laptop or cell 
phone. I asked what about in a radio and she said no. hmmmmm
