- If, within 12 months from the date of shipment of the battery, under normal conditions of use, the actual capacity of the battery falls below 70% of its nominal capacity
- If, within 24 months from the date of shipment of the battery, under normal conditions of use, the battery has total failure.
The battery warranty does not include damage from power surges, use of improper charger, improper maintenance or other such misuse, normal wear or water damage.
