Guarantee & Returns:......Due to the fact that many of the items we produce are "made to order", we unfortunately cannot accept returned items of a product unless the item is faulty in some way within the first 30 days. We will not replace or repair any item after 30 days. If you find a fault within 30 days we will be happy to repair or replace the faulty item (like for like, same size / colour etc subject to the item being returned and in stock, if not in stock a refund will be given ) - please phone or email first to obtain a returns ID number, Products must be returned to us for replacement within 30 days of receipt. Buyers will be required to pay for the cost of returning the item. All returned items must be sent back by recorded/signed-for delivery, just asking for a postal certificate (Proof of posting) from the post office is not sufficient. We also reserve the right to decline goods which are not sent by an insured and safe delivery service, which could result in the parcel arriving back with you.Lipo Warantee / Guarantee
Your lipos are guaranteed for 7 days from receipt, provided they are not used or modified. Modifying includes changing the connectors. Not used means not flown or charged/discharged. The reason for this is lipos are very temperamental - they can be damaged very easily by overcharging, over discharging, being left in a plane with battery connected, being shorted, being flown beyond the low voltage cutoff etc. We also can't tell how many times they have been used. We check lipos on dispatch for cell voltage. It is a very simple check and takes a few seconds. We recommend for your own peace of mind that you do the same on receipt. After you have charged them or flown them they are yours. it is very simple - if you are not happy with these terms - BUY THEM SOMEWHERE ELSE! If you think this is harsh - think again. We have done your homework for you and listed out the guarantee of other companies. These companies have in no way been singled out for their harsh returns policies. Infact they were the only ones which could be found with any reference to a specific lipo guarantee on their site and should be commended for their honest approach. Hobbyking do a detailed guarantee, but you must report any under voltage lipos the same day as receiving them and a claim for under voltage is only valid if the lipos haven't been cycled or used. They will also not accept shorted lipos. Electrifly do a one year one time guarantee - but check the small print. You have to use an electrify charger and balancer. And use it in accordance with the instructions. This does also not apply to performance issues related to normal wear and tear, modified lipos or crash damaged ones. BRC Hobbies don't put the lipo guidelines on their site. They only state that 'Lithium Batteries - Please read the lithium battery user guidelines supplied with each lithium battery BEFORE use. If you DO NOT agree with these terms please return battery for a full refund before use.' That seems to indicate something unusual. Why not just put it on the site? Puffin Models only accept lipos that are unused, unmodified, and returned in the same condition that they arrived within 7 days of purchase. ExtremeRC checks both the individual cell voltages and the battery pack voltage for every Lithium Polymer battery pack before we send them out. EXTREME RADIO CONTROL then warrantees all packs to have proper assembly and cell voltage at time of purchase (As do we). However, they 'do 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.' With this in mind please check your lipo when you get it. Measure the cell voltages and if you are not happy with these send it back. If you are not happy with the warranty please don't use or buy it. Lipos that have been charged or discharged are not warrantied. This as you can see is not specific to Pyramid Models. Thanks for your understanding.
