I am based out of India and I have to send two mobile phones along with batteries to Japan. I thought of sending it by DHL. This link gives information about regulations regarding the batteries.

I want to know whether the following batteries if put inside the phones and discharged is acceptable for courier or not:

A relevant paragraph at the end of the linked article is:

Due to the fact that PI965 is forbidden on passenger aircraft we offer a limited service. PI965 Section II requires separate dangerous goods account approval, since April 2016. For additional information please contact your local DHL representative. Lithium ion batteries packed with equipment (PI966) or contained in equipment (PI967) are acceptable for transport.

Does that mean if I pack the batteries inside the phones it is acceptable ?

    $\begingroup$ To the OP: this seems to be more a passenger-side question, and we generally treat those as off-topic, since they are better handled on Travel.SE, see: travel.stackexchange.com/q/42411/26630 $\endgroup$ – Federico Sep 14 '17 at 10:16

    $\begingroup$ Hazardous Materials Regulations and handling is very much a part of the aviation transportation industry. This question does not appear to be about the passenger transportation aspect of hazardous materials (spare batteries are generally allowed in carry-on luggage only) but about the cargo shipment of batteries. That being said, I'm not sure that general HMR should really be on topic for this exchange. I am voting to close as this question is only tangentially aviation related. Legal might be a better place to ask. $\endgroup$ – J Walters Sep 14 '17 at 11:16
