Oh, ok, yeah, that is a little strange...... Something could happen to the batteries, whilst they're in a device......so why allow that?

I've had myHermes deliver parcels to me, I've never had a problem, and they're returns system is great too, however I didn't know about the fact that they "roughly handle" parcels

Great!

You're right, there's every chance of something happening to a battery whilst contained in a device, as opposed to the battery being transported on its own. They should have clear rules: either we allow all batteries, or we don't allow any. (Though the latter would make it very difficult to ship laptops, tablets or phones.)
I've had MyHermes deliver to me as well; our local MyHermes courier is fine, but I've heard various reports over the web (particularly this thread on eBay's forum) about how Hermes deliveries have gone wrong - big style - with various fragile items broken. Just look on YouTube (and that thread) for myhermes reviews/deliveries... Most of the reviews are not good.

Yeah, if they give clear instructions then it would be really difficult for people who ship devices
Oh, that seems miserable Luckily, I've never had it for fragile items, mostly its been shoes, clothes etc. from when I shop online, so thankfully no harm there, I will however be more careful from now, thanks a lot for the info!

Funny how you should say that as I manage to do that to quite a few people

Btw, my display is acting strange, but just to make sure, we are on the correct numbers?

edit: It's fine now, false alarm!
Haha, I'm sure you do; there's just regular electric conversation which includes minimal specialist terminology and vague references, then there's your in depth explanations which go into a lot of detail for the average person

I've sold my Dyson Lithium Ion battery that I got in a job lot!

This time I'm having to use Collect Plus as my courier instead of Royal Mail as Royal Mail don't like sending lithium batteries on their own (i.e. not contained in a device).

-18,546
Already!? Well done!
Oh yes, I remember you telling me about that:yep:

Btw, might want to double check the numbers for both of these posts
