Refunds, returns, and exchanges


All battery sales are final.  We cannot offer a refund or exchange for any battery as these are consumable goods and can be difficult to prove if unused and as a result, cannot be reused or resold.

If you have any questions about battery compatibility, please contact us prior to purchase.

Chargers, Cases, Wraps, etc.

We accept returns up to 14 days after delivery, if the item is unused and in its original condition.  We will refund the full order amount minus the shipping costs for the return.

Damaged Items
In the event that your order arrives damaged in any way, please contact us immediately.  You will be asked to provide your order number and a photo of the item’s condition.

We address these on a case-by-case basis but will try our best to work towards a satisfactory solution.

Defective Cells (Dead on arrival)
If you receive a battery which is DOA (completely dead and will not charge), please contact us within 3 days of accepted delivery.  We will accept these cells to be returned for a replacement under the following conditions:

  •     Batch/Serial numbers will be checked to verify the cells originated from our warehouse.
  •     Battery must be new/unused without any signs of use.
  •     All original packaging must be included.

Please contact us at or via the live chat/message in the lower right corner of this webpage.

We will issue you an RMA to return the DOA cells.  Once the cells have been received, tested and verified to be DOA, a replacement order will be issued at no cost.  After the 5 day window has passed, our DOA guarantee will expire and no DOA return will be accepted.
