Terms and Conditions
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE BEFORE USING THIS WEBSITE. All site users agree that access to and use of this site are subject to the following terms and conditions as well other applicable law. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, please do not use this site.
- Orders can take 24 to 72 hours to be processed.
- All prices are subject to change without notice.
- Prices and images are subject to change without notice.
- Minor aesthetic substitutions may be made when necessary, please contact us if there is an issue
- We are not responsible for typographical or illustrative errors.
- We accept most credit cards (Visa, MasterCard) as well as PayPal and Bank Transfer. Please note that we reserve the right to not accept PayPal for certain particular products and instead request for an alternative method of payment.
- If we cannot re-cell/repair a battery for technical reasons outside of our control (e.g. parts not available), in such situations we still charge £25.00 nominal fee for the collection/return of the battery. Depending on the circumstances, we may also charge a nominal labour fee.
Inherent Risks of Lithium-Ion Battery Usage
- Lithium-Ion batteries (and other rechargeable batteries) are potentially hazardous and dangerous when subjected to abusive conditions. As such, they can become hot, explode or ignite thus causing serious injury to person or damage property. This is known as ‘Thermal Runaway’. Ebike Batteries holds no responsibility for any injury or damage caused by thermal runaway of Lithium-Ion batteries (or other rechargeable batteries). You, the purchaser and/or user of any Lithium-Ion battery or product containing Lithium-Ion batteries are responsible for the use of such products.
- When using a Lithium-Ion battery never connect the positive and negative terminals of the battery to each other with any conductive material (also known as a “short”, “short-circuit” or “shorting” the battery). This will cause the battery to rapidly discharge energy into the conductive material, heating both the material and the battery and potentially causing injury or damage from the battery or material becoming hot, igniting and/or exploding. Never store your battery with any conductive materials that may short the battery such as necklaces, hairpins, watches or other metal objects.
- Keeping your battery in a safe location can help reduce, but not completely eliminate, the risks associated with using a Lithium-Ion battery. Never expose your battery to water (especially salt water) or allow the battery to get wet. Avoid storing the battery in any location where it may come into contact with water. When not in use keep your battery at room temperature (20-25 Degrees), and out of direct sunlight. Do not place the battery in or near fire, stoves, microwaves, or other heat generating devices.
- Always turn your battery off when not in use and never charge your battery when unattended. Do not overcharge the battery (ensure you use the charger provided). When using smart chargers, be aware that damaged or malfunctioning batteries can still become overcharged and become hot, ignite, or explode. As such, never charge your battery unattended, even when using a Smart Charger.
- Immediately discontinue charge/discharge of the battery if it emits an odour, feels hot, changes shape or colour, or appears exhibits any other abnormal behaviour.. Never use water to cool down an overheated battery. Never compress, put excessive pressure on, or puncture your battery. In the event you come into physical contact from the acid of the battery, rinse the area well with water or vinegar and immediately seek medical care.
- Our minimum handling charge to repair and/or diagnose a fault with of a battery is £50.00. eBike batteries are complicated devices containing electronics, so even to diagnose a fault can take time and in some cases, means fixing things as you go along to get to the source of the problem.
Furthermore, the way batteries and their electronics work, is like the links in a chain. This means you can have instances whereby you need to fix individual components as you go along to ultimately be able to test a battery to see if it works.
Ergo, even when the £50.00 is paid, you are essentially agreeing to pay anywhere between an additional £50-£100.00 for a complete repair. The £50.00 is a nominal fee and does not necessarily cover the diagnosis, which in itself can include repairs as a necessity. In the case of large, high capacity batteries, prices will increase further due to the labour-intensive nature of working on these batteries.Due to their electronics, eBike batteries are complicated devices – and some are more complicated than others. It can take time to just open the case of a battery and remove the welded pack of cells. Hence the need for a mandatory, minimum fee.We do not guarantee or offer any warranty for repairs that involve re-balancing voltages of cells for batteries we haven’t provided and/or are outside of the 1-year warranty period. This extends to repairs that involve us replacing individual cells. This is due to the fact that as Li-ion cells age, and their internal resistance increases, their lifespan and performance is not linear.We can only offer a 1-year warranty for batteries we re-cell using our own cells or for new builds.
- We only offer a 1-year warranty on a BMS if we supply one.
- We charge £17.50 for collections and £12.50 for returns.
- Your shipping/handling fee is determined by the package’s weight, value and destination. Value is also determined for insurance purposes. Some orders can be shipped in multiple packages.
- Unless otherwise specified, all shipments are sent by an established courier of our choice. Quicker, express services are available upon request and additional charges will be incurred.
- Shipping & Handling charge is calculated based on weight and number of packages.
- We do not ship to APO/FPO military address or P.O Box addresses.
- The customer is responsible for taxes and custom duties where applicable (check your location’s Custom laws).
- All orders must be cancelled within 48 hours. While we may attempt to cancel / hold / make changes if the order has not shipped, depending on how far into the process we are it may not be possible to cancel.
- Once the order has shipped it cannot be cancelled.
Product warranties are not valid for any kind commercial/industrial use where excessive usage and/or excessive weight transportation is required (rickshaw, pedicab, delivery vehicle, rental company).
