Rechargeable Batteries

Note: There is three month limited warranty on sales of new rechargeable batteries and no warranty on second hand, refurbished batteries. If you claim the battery to be faulty within that time period, the battery will be inspected and if any user abuse, improper maintenance, or mis-use is found on the battery, the claim will be rejected.

The warranty on any rechargeable batteries is subject to the user following all safety and precautions provided (please see the support section of this website for more information regarding the product you purchased).  FAILURE TO FOLLOW: THE CORRECT INFORMATION REGARDING THE BATTERY MAINTENANCE, USE & CHARGING OF THE BATTERY, USE OF THE CHARGER, AND ANY RECOMMENDATIONS,  IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN AS THIS IS DANGEROUS AND CAN CREATE A FIRE RISK.  DRONE FISHING NZ TAKES NO RESPONSIBILITY UNDER THESE CONDITIONS.  The warranty does not cover overcharging or over discharging of batteries (which then leads to battery issues or non working batteries).

IMPORTANT NOTE : NEVER leave batteries unattended while they are charging.  Our recommendation is to always charge and store batteries in a fireproof bag or container. Do not leave the battery charger on overnight, and turn off/remove power to chargers before going to bed.  Only use the correct original charger & cables supplied by the manufacturer and follow all reasonable standards while charging (ie. no double plugs or loose connections, direct connections to power outlets rather than multi-plugs).  Batteries should not be stored for more than a few days on full charge and batteries should not be fully drained out of charge as the battery can be permanently damaged in both cases.

Please take note of the age limitations on products and packaging and ensure these are followed at all times..  All children must be supervised while they are using toys as there are many risks including swallowing parts, injuries from moving parts and propellers, injuries related to loud noises or lights, injuries related to shooting parts, just to name a few.
