If we receive a device back under warranty and subsequently find no issues when we complete testing, a charge of £20.00 plus return shipping costs (normally £10.00 within the UK, more if being shipped outside the UK) will be applied prior to sending back to you.
On rare occasions, products may develop a fault. Our flexible no fuss policy for dealing with faulty goods is intended to ensure you get the fastest resolution possible and minimise the time you are without a working item. We will either choose to repair the product in-house or replace as necessary. Any item returned to us may be charged an additional fee to cover the cost of testing and return if devices are found to be fully working or if the device is found to have been accidentally damaged. Faulty devices must be returned within 6 months of purchase or they will be rejected and returned and will be charged an administration fee (£20.00) and return delivery fee. If your device becomes faulty after your warranty period has expired, we may offer a discounted repair rate. We will not offer any refund on any items sold that have elapsed the warranty period. It is the buyer's responsibility to return the item to us. Postage refunds for faulty items received within the first 14 days will be issued, up to a maximum value of £10.00, but only after the items have come back to us and at reasonable costs. You must notify us within 14 days after receiving your order that your device or accessory is faulty. You must return your device within 14 days to be entitled to a postage refund. Please complete a Product Return Application to be issued with an RMA number.
We fully test each battery within the device prior to shipping. We run a full battery test which consists of playing a constant YouTube video with medium backlight settings, Bluetooth on, WiFi on and connected and settings restored to Factory Defaults. We expect a battery to last approx 5-7 hours during tests and we deem this to be a good battery. Times will vary across devices depending on battery capacity. For example, an iPhone 5/5C/5S/SE will last 5-7 hours using above testing methods while an iPhone 6/6S may last 6-8 hours as the battery capacity is a little larger. We will only replace a battery if the above times are not being met and within your warranty period only. If you find your battery is not depleting to 0% correctly, your device is shutting off randomly or at a certain percentage, we will replace the battery during your warranty period only. If we receive a device for warranty battery replacement and subsequently find no issues when we complete testing, a charge of £20.00 plus return shipping costs (normally £10.00 within the UK more if being shipped outside the UK) will be applied prior to sending back to you. If you suspect you may have a battery issue, we urge you to restore your device back to factory settings and test your device again. It is possible an application or background service may be draining your battery more than usual. For further help and tips to increase your battery life, please read our "Getting the most from your battery" guide.
