Warranty on Batteries
This section is split in to two categories and applies to all batteries sold:
Warranty Protected Batteries
All batteries sold on our website are of a very high quality, we only sell genuine products which use high quality cell inside. Therefore we offer a 12 month warranty on all protected batteries sold. This covers against manufacturing defects or failures from date of delivery during normal use. It DOES NOT cover batteries which have been abused, over charged, over discharged or show any signs of misuse, it also does not cover a degradation of the battery's capacity as this is normal and over time a battery will lose it capacity over its life.
Warranty UnProtected Batteries
All unprotected batteries sold on our website are of a very high quality, we only sell genuine products which use high quality cells. Due to this and the very high quality control there is very little chance of an unprotected battery being defective when it is delivered. Due to this and the fact that it is very easy to damage an unprotected battery we offer a 30 day warranty on them. This gives the user 30 days grace to use the battery an ensure it is without defect. This warranty covers against manufacturing defects or failures from date of delivery during normal use. It DOES NOT cover batteries which have been abused, over charged, over discharged or batteries which has been used outside its working capability (i.e. had too much current/drain taken from them), or show signs of misuse.
