US PostOffice bans overseas shipping: phones,computers etc with lithium ion batteries

USPS to ban overseas shipments on tablets, smartphones, more
Starting next week, people won't be able to ship a whole host of electronics overseas because items like the iPad, Kindle, laptops, and smartphones use possibly combustible lithium ion batteries.

and 100s more on google news

Does not say anything about incoming items to the USA like you would buy on Ebay.

this is a real game changer......you may want to order now before next week when it starts.
