*Warranties are non-transferable*
We cannot exchange a flat (discharged) battery, only faulty products. If something on the vehicle has drained the battery, or the alternator has failed, this would not cover under warranty. Below is Battery State of Charge chart.
Testing a faulty battery
Before we can accept return of a faulty battery, you should have the battery VOLTS & CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) tested locally likes ATS, Quick fit or Halfords.
Our product warranties cover product replacement only i.e. we guarantee the product against physical failure for the duration of x years (usually 4) We will supply a replacement battery in the instance of product failure during that period.
Machinery, Tractors, Taxi vehicles, Black Cabs using 643, 663, 644, 664 type commercial batteries are only guaranteed for 12 months due to extreme usage. Start Stop Taxi are given 3 years warranty with AGM battery types.
We do not accept product returns that are caused by vehicles with malfunctioning alternators** We also do not accept product returns from owners of vehicles that are driven for less than 30 miles per week. Where the vehicle is driven less than 30 miles per week the battery is not charged regularly enough to be considered normal operation. We would advise the regular use of a battery maintenance charger.
This includes Leisure Batteries such as those used in Motorhomes, Caravans, Boats etc. Where a leisure battery has been left uncharged for such a period of time as to cause the battery to sulphate.
We recommend Leisure Batteries should be kept above 12.10 volts, Your warranty will be void if the battery has been discharged below 10.60 volts (100% discharged).
Negligence on your part may be investigated if we doubt that your claim is genuine.
(** The vehicle’s alternator re-charges the battery whilst the engine is running)
