Warranty and Returns

What is the warranty provided by Robokits ?

Due to the kind of product we sell, we provide limited conditional warranty only for most of our products. As most of the products can be easily damaged in case of improper handling, reverse polarity voltage input, overloading, short circuit or ESD we provide only limited conditional warranty just to ensure that our products are best in quality if used properly.
We have changed our warranty policy and period for most of our products since 20th December 2013 as we were getting over 95% wrong claims where either the products are working properly but customer is not able to use it properly or the product is not working because of wrong use. All items ordered before this date will carry warranty as per the website information till 20th December 2013.

What is covered in warranty?

Warranty is provided to ensure that Robokits provides quality products and continue to improve products against general problems. However due to the kind of products we sell, its very easy to blow up the product due to many reasons like improper signals or power supply etc. We provide conditional warranty only in case there is genuine fault in the product. 
Warranty is provided mainly against non proper components/parts used in some products such that the product does not work properly or non proper assembling or manufacturing defects. 
Also warranty is provided for damage occurred during shipping. In this case warranty is provided on all of our products and customers must contact Robokits within 48 hours after receiving the parcel or else the warranty will be void.

Some important notes on warranty related to different category of products

Motors Motors are not covered in warranty in case there is mechanical damage or damage in gears or other mechanical parts due to overloading. 
Warranty is also void if motor brushes are worn out or burnt. This happens due to overloading or stalling.
Batteries and Cells Batteries will not be covered in warranty if thery are shorted, overloaded or over discharged. We sell only Li-Ion and Li-Po batteries which are very sensitive to high temperatures,short circuit, overloading and over discharging. Even improper charging with normal power supply or non Li-Ion chargers may damage the battery. In any of above cases warranty will be void.
Motor drivers or Boards with Motor drivers Motor drivers are very important parts in robotics. They are also most often failing parts in robotics as they are overloaded.
A DC motor takes much higher current at start up and stall conditions compared to normal running. If these high current are not calculated while choosing motor driver motor driver may overload unexpectedly in certain conditions. 
Other circuits Many of our circuits like robot controllers, development boards, sensors, Arduino and Raspberry Pi boards come with headers which can be accidentally connected to wrong signal pins, high voltage or negative voltage. In this case warranty is void.
Robots  Most of the robots we sell are DIY kit. Even after explaining the assembly and programming completely in user  manual its possible to make mistake. If mechanical part, circuit or motor is damaged while assembling or wrong assembly it will void warranty. Individual circuits and parts carry individual warranty also.








My product is out of warranty but not working somehow, can Robokits repair my product?

Yes, for sure. If the warranty is over it doesn't mean that our responsibility towards the sold product is over. We provide repairing service at minimal possible rates. Customer needs to communicate on email first before sending the product.
