    I had a battery mailed to me. It was wrapped up like no other and stuck in a USPS bubbled envelope.

    No, not using the postal system. However another service like UPS or FedEx is OK as long as their rules are followed, but be warned these other services will be expensive.

    Exactly - in particular the section that relates to secondary Lithium-Ion batteries not installed in equipment.
    But again, this is USPS restrictions, not UPS or FedEx.

    We have people send us LiPos all the time in all manner of boxes using a lot of different shipping methods. How legal they all are, I cannot say.

    UPS will typically want some sort of LiPo warning label put on the package.
