Sales & Return Policy
Making A Purchase
Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.
We accept Credit Card and Debit Card payments.
When confirmation of order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
Shipping And Handling
Orders for battery products have to be shipped using a courier which will require a signature on delivery. Any customer charges are the responsibility of the customer as are any additional delivery charges (e.g. re-delivery attempts).
We will process your order immediately and aim to ship your order to you within two working days and you can expect to receive your order within 3 working days from despatch.
Credit Card Security
When the order is placed at our website, the credit/debit card details are taken via Shopify Payments over a secure server system. The credit/debit card numbers are encrypted and sent to Shopify. They are not held in clear text on any web site.
We guarantee your satisfaction. All products have a standard 1 year return to manufacturer warranty covering manufacturer defect.

How to care for your Powertraveller battery
Our products are resilient creatures on the outside that can be bashed and thrown around. However, at the centre there is something a little more sensitive. This is the beating heart of the battery, or in more techy terms- the Lithium battery that continues to keep your devices powered.
Lithium batteries are amazing things, but nonetheless they do have a lifespan and can only be recharged a large but finite amount of times before the battery life starts to diminish.
There is a standard 1 year manufacturer warranty. Your battery needs to be used ideally within a year of manufacturing and if used properly will have a lifespan of up to 5 years depending on how often it is used. By reason of its chemistry if your battery sits on a shelf for 2 years the battery will lose condition and will not perform to the best of its ability. Much like a car battery, the more you use it, the more it will be conditioned.
Good news though- there are ways to maintain and improve the lifespan of your battery's life!
Always try to store your battery at around 40-60% charged.
Always charge the battery whenever possible, because frequent top-ups are much kinder to the battery than running it until it is flat, but avoid constant DC power.
Always ensure the battery is recharged as soon as possible, if it does become fully discharged. A Li-ion battery will be permanently damaged if left fully discharged for an extended period of time.
Calibrate a new battery by discharging it until the low battery warning prompts you to plug in a power source, (usually around 10%) and then recharge it fully. Doing this once every month or so, will help to keep the battery accurately calibrated. .
Store your battery in a cool, dry place.
Never leave your Li-ion battery in a fully discharged state for an extended period of time.
Do not charge your battery inside its case; this could cause the battery to get very hot. Likewise, please do not smother your battery while charging both a device or itself
Keep the battery away from fire or other sources of extreme heat. Do not incinerate. Exposure of batteries to extreme heat may result in explosion.
NEVER use a 3rd party AC mains charger to charge your Powertraveller battery
Do not leave your battery in an airtight place (e.g car glove compartment) for a long period of time.
Do not throw away or dispose of your battery with household waste. Please recycle all batteries, as they contain chemicals which are harmful to the environment.
