Products described as unsuitable or unwanted, may be returned for up to 30 days from the date of supply, provided that, they are; new, unused and still complete in their original packaging. However, due to the non-refundable payment collection charges, there is a re-stocking charge of 4% for items where delivery was paid for. If delivery was free, then the re-stocking charge is 8%, to include a contribution to the delivery cost.
In the event of an item which if it is found to be faulty on delivery, we will arrange collection or refund the cost of return by Royal Mail tracked delivery. We may refund, if requested, or we will replace at our cost. Please notify us of such items within 48 hours or 2 working days.
For items delivered as gifts between 25th of November and 24th of December, these conditions are extended until 31st December plus 2 working days.
Faults must be demonstrated or shown, when the item/s are returned.
Note: Due to the possible contamination of liquids, it is not possible to exchange, or refund vape eliquids once they have left the premises, unless seals remain intact (and they are still boxed). Even if they are the wrong flavour or strength, therefore, it is your responsibility to check the goods are as ordered, before use or opening.
Due to current regulations, we may not be able to inspect your item for 3 working days. Therefore any refund will be processed as soon as possible after this isolation period.
For shop sales or distance sales after this period, we will exchange the faulty component item like-for-like. If after two attempts to repair or replace the component (faulty a third time), and is in the warranty period, you may ask for a refund.
It is the responsibility of the purchaser to return items at your expense.
Exchanged faulty items do not extend the warranty period.
Products are supplied with a manufacturer’s guarantee against defects of varying periods of 30 days to 6 months (supplier dependent). Generally, assume 90 days for most items.
Products should be reasonably unmarked and not look like they have been abused, as the most common reason for failure is being dropped or immersed in liquid, either water or eliquid (which can contain water).
However, it should be noted that coils, cartomisers & atomisers are consumables which have very short life cycles, and can vary considerably. They are easily damaged though improper use and have no warranty.
Also, batteries and cells can be abused in a number of ways, including over discharge, part charging, left discharged, frozen or not being completely discharged regularly enough. Twin battery boxes, need changing position regularly as they tend to lean on the first cell.It should also be noted that batteries have a maximum life cycle of 300 charges (or part charges) to 60% of capacity, or 2 years from first charge. Practically that means 180 daily charges or approx. 6 months, before a significant reduction in performance is apparent.
For regulated boxes, software updates may be regularly required, via the data cable.
Please return the item to us, for examination, service, and exchange wherever possible.
