Product Warranty

Limited Product Warranty

CTEK issues a limited product warranty on all battery chargers. Refer to the owner's manual for specific warranty details and a 2-year limited warranty on accessories.

The Limited Warranty does not cover damage caused by improper handling of the product or improper use or storage of the product. Damage caused by maintenance, dismantling, or product modifications by anyone other than an authorized CTEK technician or damage caused by poor packaging when returning the product also voids the warranty. The removal of a product serial number or marring beyond recognition will void the Limited Warranty. In order to make a claim under the Limited Warranty, proof of original purchase from CTEK or an authorized reseller must be provided.

For further details on the Limited Warranty, please see details available at www.smartcharger.com.

Warranty Claims

Warranty claims may be placed by contacting our sales staff. Each case is handled on an individual case by case basis. If it is determined that the part is defective and eligible for replacement, we will either replace the product or issue a refund to the account. No refunds will be provided for shipping charges or other additional fees.

Disclaimer of Implied Warranties

Except for any express warranty granted for a product, each CTEK product and its components are sold "AS IS/WHEREAS". CTEK makes no further warranties, including without limitation any warranty of merchantability of or fitness for a particular purpose, each of which is hereby disclaimed.

Neither CTEK nor any agent or distributor of CTEK products will be liable for any loss, damage, or injury arising from the use of a product and will not be liable for any indirect, consequential, or special damages arising out of the use of a product, including without limitation, loss of profit, loss of business, disruption of business or loss of business opportunity. In any situation, CTEK's liability in connection with any product is limited to 2 times the original purchase price of the relevant product.

No sales representative has any authority to make any statement contrary to these Terms or the Limited Warranty.

Retention of Title - Risk Transfer

We reserve the right of ownership for each product delivered until full payment has been received by CTEK. The risk of the product is transferred to you at the time the product is delivered to you.

Force Majeure

CTEK is not liable for any non-performance due to an unforeseen occurrence beyond its control, disruption, or complete or partial strike, in particular for transport or communications services, fire, or flood.

If you're a U.S. resident, you also agree to the following mandatory arbitration provisions:

You and CTEK agree to resolve any claims relating to a product or these terms through final and binding arbitration by a single arbitrator, except as may be provided otherwise below. This includes any dispute arising out of or relating to interpretation or application of these Mandatory Arbitration Provisions, including enforceability, revocability, or validity.

If you choose to decline this agreement to arbitrate, you can notify CTEK of your choice to opt out of this arbitration clause by emailing CTEK at info@smartercharger.com within 30 days of placing your order. An option to opt out applies on an individual order basis.

The American Arbitration Association (AAA) will administer the arbitration under its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The arbitration will be held in the United States county either where you live or work, within Cook County, Illinois, or any other location that is agreed upon.

The AAA rules will govern payment of all arbitration fees. CTEK will pay all arbitration fees for individual arbitration for claims less than $10,000. If you receive an arbitration award that is more favorable than any offer we make to resolve the claim, we will pay you $1,000 in addition to the award. CTEK will not seek its attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines that your claim is frivolous.

Either you or CTEK may assert claims, if they qualify, in small claims court in Cook County in the State of Illinois or any United States county where you live or work. Either party may bring a lawsuit solely for injunctive relief to stop unauthorized use of a product, or intellectual property infringement (for example, trademark, trade secret, copyright, or patent rights) without first engaging in arbitration or the informal disputeresolution process described above. If the agreement to arbitrate is found not to apply to you or your claim, you agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state and federal courts in Cook County, Illinois to resolve your claim.

NO CLASS ACTIONS. You may only resolve disputes with us on an individual basis, and may not bring a claim as a plaintiff or a class member in a class, consolidated, or representative action. Class arbitration, class actions, private attorney general actions, and consolidation with other arbitration shall not be allowed. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Mandatory Arbitration Provisions” section will be deemed void.

Governing Law

These Terms, as well as all the transactions in connection with the sale of products to you processed through the Website, are regulated, interpreted and executed in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois, without regard to principals governing conflicts of law.

Severability

If CTEK cannot enforce any right under these Terms, this does not prevent CTEK from maintaining other rights, or the same type of rights at a later time. If any provision of these terms and conditions proves to be illegal, invalid or unenforceable, that provision shall be deemed to be separate and the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions of these Terms shall not be affected.

“Having owned several of another ‘popular’ brand of charger, the CTEK is far and above superior in every possible category. WELL worth the miniscule additional cost. ”
