Thats worth it, but not the ridiculous 44€. I pay less than half of that from singapore to here. Those dutch postal services must have gold boxes for the package. i think i will email them telling that a card box will suffice.

Apparently the NL warehouse won't ship any batteries to Switzerland. Makes no sense...

No, but we don't have stricter shipping regulations that would explain it. I can order other things, just not batteries for whatever reason...

I read that shipping companies are developing a fireproof container for handling battery transportation. But meanwhile there will be these problems.
I think main option for me right now will be electronicarc in Spain.
