It is important to note that the batteries in our refurbished laptops are tested to hold a charge. Universe Direct does not promise or commit to a minimum battery discharge / run time.
When in use, the laptop may display warnings about the health of the battery. These warnings are not grounds for replacement.
Our warranty policy states that a laptop battery will only be replaced under warranty when (a) it has been received in non-functional condition (i.e. it does not hold any charge) and the fault is reported within the first 7 days after purchase, or (b) when the battery was purchased new. With the latter, the battery is included in the laptop’s initial 12 month carry-in warranty.
To ensure optimum performance from the battery, we strongly recommend that a new battery be purchased with a refurbished laptop.
