Is there any way to legally ship batteries overseas?

I found a battery online for an ancient laptop I got a few months ago, for the first time since I started looking, but the seller is located in the UK and doesn't ship overseas to the US. I have a friend who may be able to ship it from the UK personally, but from what I understand, USPS requires the battery in the product it's destined for - meaning just plain batteries aren't eligible.

Anybody ever ship a battery internationally? I just don't want to go through this hassle and have it held at customs and lose out on what I paid for it plus shipping.

I've bought batteries from other countries (mainly china) and had no issues, I cant see any reason you should either.

Uhhhhh put the battery in a box and put a note on it explaining that the box is the product it was destined for?
