Air cargo of batteries from China to USA

It is known to all that it’s hard to transport batteries. Many domestic express companies reject delivering pure batteries. Therefore, many Chinese companies are unable to handle pure batteries worldwide. Only a few freight forwarders in China can handle the international cargo of pure batteries and many of them limit the power of batteries below 100W. Such batteries will not be sent to USA if the power is above 100W. Let freightbest.com tell you: No, some batteries can still be shipped to USA through air freight even if their power is above 100W. What are the requirements for sending batteries to USA from China?
