There is no clause for exclude SLA batteries.

Seems to me you don't get why Li-Ion battery is the target of limitation here.

http://apps.tsa.dhs....rch=Wet Battery

Every UPS I have ever seen has had a sealed lead acid battery and that is considered a wet battery. the only way wet batteries can be transported is if they are in a wheelchair or scooter. so you can ship the UPS, but not the battery inside...

By whom ?

As to that link, it's based on spillable parameter specifically: "Car batteries, wet batteries, or spillable batteries"

Hmm. I just got two replacement batteries for two UPS units - sealed lead acid. Really heavy. Shipped UPS.
