VR2W Lithium Batteries
Buy Lithium Batteries Locally and Save Money
VEMCO’s VR2W is powered by a single D-cell lithium battery from Tadiran and customers have the option of purchasing their VR2W with or without the battery included.
For shipping purposes, lithium batteries are classified as dangerous goods and regulations regarding the shipment of these batteries are becoming more stringent. Along with having to conduct additional, more costly test procedures prior to shipment, packaging requirements are stricter which also adds to the cost of shipping.
If you have a distributor in your area, you may want to consider purchasing your lithium batteries locally. Depending on the number of VR2Ws you have purchased, your cost savings on shipping could be fairly substantial.
