EXCLUSIONS TO WARRANTY OF GEL/AGM/FLOODED/VRLA - LEAD ACID BATTERIES
1.          Should a teardown reveal the presence of “white” sulphation – the obvious result from inadequate charging the    

             claim will be disallowed.

2.          Low Electrolyte Levels.  There are only three ways that a battery can lose electrolyte.
 2.1        A hole or crack in the casing and the electrolyte leaks out.
 2.2        Overvoltage during the charge process either by the regulator failing on the alternator or by the use of an      

              unregulated battery charger. Most modern battery chargers are micro processor controlled, are very simple to use,

              are safe to be left connected to the battery for long periods of time and are inexpensive. The use of Automatic ,

              “ intelligent “ battery chargers are encouraged , especially on sealed batteries and will in fact enhance the    

              life of a battery with regular use.
 2.3        If a battery has been left discharged for a long period of time, the sulphation process inhibits the charge      

              process. It causes a build up of heat as a result of high resistance. This causes the battery to gas and results 

              in the subsequent loss of electrolyte through the breather, which is calibrated to allow the gas to escape, to   

              prevent the battery from exploding. In some instances, should the charge rate be too high, then the condensation 

              chamber might not have the capacity to process the high volume of hydrogen and oxygen and the battery can        

              explode. 
 2.4        NOTE: when a battery charger is connected permanently to a battery, (E.G. standby or back up application), then  

              only a CONSTANT VOLTAGE CHARGER may be used. If not, the battery will lose electrolyte due to gassing.

3.           DAMAGED CASINGS AND BROKEN TERMINALS.  Physical damage in any way to the battery is not a factory fault.
 3.1        Always check that terminals are tight. Loose terminals are a common problem which causes arcing or flashing and  

              results in the terminal or post being burned off.
 3.2        The same situation when a vehicle is being jump started with jumper cables. Ensure that connections are tight and

              safe.
 3.3        When attaching cables to the terminals, do not over tighten. When using the thread type terminal the maximum     

               torque permissible is 18 – 20 Newton meters.

4.          Full data logging will be required for batteries used for Solar, Standby, Backup and Telecom applications with   

             the following details from installation date:

             (a) Site Temperatures
             (b) Charging Parameters (Volts, Amps, Temperature)
             (c) Discharge Parameters (Volt, Amps, Temperature) 
             (d) Inverter/UPS Loads (KVA, Watts, Volts)
             (e) Inverter/UPS Parameters (Charge/Discharge Values)
           
             NOTE: If data cannot be supplied for these specific applications warranty will be void.
 
5.          Battery temperature exceeds 41°C

Conditions of Warranty:

 1.        This warranty applies only to the original purchaser of the equipment and is non transferable.
 2.        This warranty does not cover any physical damage due to nature or man, which stresses the battery beyond design   

           limits, and is void if manufacturing date codes are destroyed.
 3.        Each battery must be the proper size, design and capacity for its intended application at 25゜C
 4.        The warranty period shall be adjusted based on operating temperatures, frequency and depth of discharge. For every

           10 ゜C  increase in operating temperature above 25 ゜C, the warranty period will be reduced by 50%.
 5.        Each battery must be operated and maintained in accordance with the published instructions. This warranty is      

           invalid if the battery is subject to misuse, abuse, physical damage, freezing, neglect, or the use of battery     

           additions.
           Elexco (Pty) Ltd shall not be liable for, and user shall indemnify and save Elexco (Pty) Ltd harmless from any    

           claims and liabilities arising out of the use, maintenance, transportation, or installation of any equipment          

           warranted hereunder. The foregoing limited warranty is in lieu of all warranties expressed or implied, including           

           any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Elexco (Pty) Ltd shall not have any liability           

           for any special, incidental, indirect or consequential damages.
 6.       A battery will not be considered defective unless it fails to deliver 75% or less of its quoted capacity during   

           the guarantee period.
