ii. Any breakage caused by accidental damage or as a result of abuse and misuse or commercial use is not covered.
iii. Under this scheme, PowaKaddy will, at its own option, repair or replace the defective product or part free of charge.
iv. PowaKaddy reserves the right to inspect or test any Product claimed to be defective.
v. The period of guarantee commences on the date of purchase of the Product. Proof of purchase and purchase date will be required.
vi. Any repairs or replacements made without charge do not carry a new warranty beyond that of the original purchase.

ix. The guarantee is non-transferable and is only available to residents of UK and Ireland ‡. Customers living outside UK or Ireland should contact their retailer or local distributor.
x. This guarantee is in addition to and does not affect the consumer’s statutory rights.
Further information in respect of these statutory rights can be obtained from your local Trading Standards Department or Citizen’s Advice Bureau.
4. In respect of the ‘5-Year Pro-Rata Warranty’ on Universal and Drop-In Lithium Batteries:
i. The battery is covered by a 3-year standard warranty from the date of purchase.
ii. Proof of purchase will be required.

vii. If your battery should fail in year 5, a brand new replacement can be purchased for a 15% discount off the listed purchase price.
viii. This pro-rata transaction will incur a postage charge and must be transacted directly with PowaKaddy; not through your retailer or service agent.
ix. This guarantee is in addition to and does not affect the consumer’s statutory rights.
‡ CROSS-BORDER SALES
PowaKaddy has an exclusive distributor that looks after the sales they have made in each of their franchised countries. This means that Warranties on products sold in one country are not transferable to another country because such contracts follow business‑to‑business transactions.
Retailers, especially online retailers, are therefore expected to make it clear that “out-of-country” sales only carry a “back-to-retailer” warranty. So, for example, a product purchased from the UK and shipped to the Ukraine will not be repaired under warranty in the Ukraine. It will have to be shipped back to the UK before being considered for warranty repair in the UK. PowaKaddy will not pay for this shipping because it is a breach of contract with their distributor. So consumers and sellers need to bear this in mind.
International regulations governing the transportation of lithium batteries mean that lithium batteries can only be handled by specialist carriers. Furthermore, these regulations also preclude these carriers from transporting potentially “faulty” or “failed” lithium batteries. Owners of companies in breach of these regulations are personally liable for breaches, as Amazon has recently found. This effectively means that buying a lithium battery from another country completely defeats the offered warranty in the other country because it cannot be invoked.
The PowaKaddy website will therefore not allow registration of out-of-country warranty purchases.
Buyers and sellers, please be aware.
