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.

If they drag your bag out onto the tarmac and have the SWAT team blow it up, please record a cell phone video so we can watch!!!

Um, why is the ups so important to have it day one, instead of say day two or three?
