Did you vote for, and/or donate money to Trump? Your social credit score may be so poor that you aren't allowed to buy things anymore.

There was a jet crash in the Everglades attributed to batteries being transported in the cargo compartment. Maybe because of that?

That was oxygen generators

Still, a lot of regs regarding shipping lithium ion batteries

If the shipper properly labels the package, they can be sent by air internationally, assuming the total battery power is below the air threshold. I do know it's a pain in the ass to ship batteries legally.

Should have just had the shipper label the package as 'machine parts' and had them throw in a few AK's and SKS's while you were having contraband shipped to you.
