Royal Mail have recently changed the rules on what they will & will not allow to be posted. This has a serious effect for us as many of our products now fall into categories classed as "prohibited" or "restricted" by Royal Mail. Details of these restrictions are as follows:
Sealed Lead-acid batteries:
Royal Mail will still carry these as long as there is no more than one battery in any package & the weight of that battery must be no more than 1.5kg. This applies to UK domestic mail only, this type of battery is now prohibited from airmail post.
Lithium batteries (Lipo, LiFe, lithium ion etc):
Royal Mail will not carry these batteries to either UK or international destinations. Although Royal Mail rules allow for lithium batteries to be sent with equipment, in practice these rules are ignored & packages containing equipment with batteries are intercepted by Royal Mail & are destroyed.
These are good quality, easy to solder, high amp connectors. I particularly like them as the heat shrink can be applied afterwards (unlike when you have forgotten to slide it onto the cable before soldering other connectors). Providing you use the coloured heatshrink and a little care, you should have no issues with polarity.
One thing to note is that you CAN use short type male into long type female, but NOT the other way round as you will get an uninsulated mid section. (Posted on 31/03/2015)
