Data Loggers Used in Air, Sea & Road Shipments

Tinytag data loggers are widely used to monitor the condition of shipments by air, sea and road. There are regulations that restrict the transporting of lithium batteries due to the hazardous nature of lithium.

Provided there are no more than four data loggers being used per package (each containing one lithium metal cell) then the package may be transported freely anywhere in the world without any special labeling. However, please note:

  • This only applies to data loggers with batteries fitted (not spare batteries or service kits).
  • The data loggers and the batteries in them must be free from damage.
  • All batteries in the data loggers must meet the requirements in the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria, Part III, Subsection 38.3 and must contain less than 1g of lithium (all batteries supplied by Gemini meet these requirements).

CUSTOMERS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR CHECKING THE COMPLIANCE OF ANY REPLACEMENT BATTERIES NOT SUPPLIED BY GEMINI. PLEASE NOTE THAT MANY REPLACEMENT LITHIUM 'C' CELLS (THE BATTERY USED BY SOME RADIO LOGGERS) CONTAIN MORE THAN 1g OF LITHIUM SO MUST BE SHIPPED AS 'DANGEROUS GOODS'.

Packages containing data loggers that meet the above requirements may be combined or 'overpacked' into larger shipments.
For information about transporting larger quantities of data loggers please see Transporting Data Loggers with Lithium Batteries.
