Filing a Warranty Claim


Before filing a claim, try these common troubleshooting tips:

  • Ensure that over-watering or under-watering of the battery is not occurring by checking electrolyte levels and specific gravity for continuity
  • Ensure extreme temperature operating is not occurring by recording electrolyte temperature and inspecting that intercell connections, cables, and terminal connectrs show no signs of extreme heating
  • Ensure the battery is operating in the application it was originally intended for (i.e. single shift, extended shift, conventional /opportunity/ fast charging)
  • Ensure the battery and any accessories (i.e. watering system, BMU, charger monitor) is not damaged
