Default Sending stuff with batteries FROM china - will it send ?

People please help me as I cant find any useful info via google:

Friend is living in China and wants to send me 3 mobile phones via China post, into Serbia.

We heard that Lithium batteries are now banned from shipping. He didnt find the time to go and check for himself as he is rather busy and we dont want to order before we are sure that it could be sent.

I searched some forums that deal with that issue and here is what I found

September 20, 2013 - along with Hong Kong post that already had Li-iOn banned, China post also banned Li-ion in shipping packages.

Several months after that, it was changed back to "one battery per one device" with connectors blocked, and single battery units without device cant send. < this is unconfirmed as it is only a random internet forum info without links.

Is it possible to send from China, via China post, a phone with the whole package (phone + accessories) without any problems ?
