checks both the individual cell voltages and the battery pack voltage for
every Lithium battery pack before we send them out. Oz-Ebikes then warrantees all packs to have proper assembly
and cell voltage at time of purchase. In the event that a customer finds
defects in materials or assembly workmanship when the goods are received but
unused, Oz-Ebikes will replace such packs
Oz-Ebikes does not offer a general warranty for battery packs which have already been charged and discharged, or for which claims are made more than one week after receipt of said battery packs by the customer. Because the majority of Lithium Battery problems occur after initial use and are due to over charge/discharge or abuse/neglect of the packs, it is in most cases difficult to determine the cause of failure, and often requires inspection by the manufacturer. Battery packs are deemed to be CONSUMABLES, and as such are not subject to warranty, there is no guaranteed lifespan on any lithium battery due to the nature of the design, all lithium batteries degrade over time whether used or not.
For packs that have been used and which the customer believes are defective, Oz-Ebikes will inspect and test the batteries. If defects are found the batteries will be replaced. In the event that the pack is found not defective or has been damaged by misuse, the pack may be returned to the customer if desired, at the customer's expense.
Any products returned to Oz-Ebikes for a warranty claim or return shall be at the cost of the buyer. The customer must contact Oz-Ebikes to obtain a return authorization before sending any products back otherwise we will accept no responsibility for the returned items. Goods must be well packed, any damages occurring during return are not the responsibility of Oz-Ebikes, the customer must ensure he/she insures the item/s being returned.
Goods being returned for credit/refund must be in their original packaging and in as new unused condition, batteries must be returned with all original packaging and paperwork for verification that they have not been charged/used.
PLEASE NOTE: We have installed and tested all our Electric kits, we know they work and we have many customers who have installed the kit on their own, and with our email or phone help when needed. Installation is not difficult with the right tools, but it is easy to rush the installation, not test the setup carefully enough and then go out on the bike and cause damage to the chain drive and associated components. If you are in doubt about your installation DO NOT RIDE IT!! Email us with photos, call up and explain your concerns, we are here to help you but we cannot fix what you break from rushing the install or a lack of mechanical knowledge/skill.
