  8. 8. www.quick.aero 4. Look it up. After you gather the information in the steps 1-3, go to the appropriate Packing Instruction, either PI 965 or PI 968, and plug in the data.
  9. 9. ................................... ............... EXAMPLE 4 Step Approach to Classifying Lithium Batteries
  10. 10. www.quick.aero Start by going through steps 1-4. Let’s assume that: • You have 2 batteries • Battery cells have a 21 wh • Battery has 180 wh • You want to place both batteries in one package • Each battery weights 2 kg
  11. 11. www.quick.aero Take a look at Table 965: TIP: Start by comparing your data with the requirements of the least restrictive section, Section II, to see if you qualify, and if not then work your way up towards the most restrictive.
  12. 12. www.quick.aero Table 965 analysis: Start with Section II The first column applies to cells and batteries with 2.7 wh or less; That’s not you. Next column is for cells with wh ratings greater than 2.7 but not more than 20; That again is not you. The last column applies to batteries with a wh not more than 100. Again not you, although you do comply with the 2 batteries per package rule.
  13. 13. www.quick.aero Table 965 analysis: Move to Section IB You notice that the wh restrictions are the same as in Section II; the only difference between II and IB is the number/weight of batteries allowed per package.
  14. 14. www.quick.aero Table 965 analysis: Move to Section IA Section IA, Table 965-IA allows wh ratings greater than those in IB and II. Your batteries qualify under this section. Now all you have to do is keep the combined weight of the batteries in each box under the maximum 5 kg allowed for Passenger Aircraft or 35 kg for Cargo Freighter.
