Default BattleBorn battery warranty

I bought a BattleBorn (Dragonfly) LiFEPO4 battery over a year ago, it came with a 3yr warranty. Today they just announced they are increasing their warranty to 10yrs, retroactive for all existing purchases.

Either an act of desperation or an act of supreme confidence in their product. I have no reason to think it is the former.

....or the Li market is moving forward from early adapters to main stream. It is a matter of time when lower cost product from far east will come possibly shaking the market. There is one member on this forum connected with the Chinese tools batteries factory subliminally engaging in RV discussions, lets hope for decent prices.

I have two Battleborn batteries, 100AH. One 7 months old and one 4 months old. They have been in use daily with no problems. They haven't been discharged below 55%, are charged at 90 amps, and seem to be very happy.

I do need to try the 30% state of charge thing one of these days. Just haven't needed it.

Big news! What kind of RVs do you have? And for how many LiFePO4 batteries once a time?

All of these US companies are just cheap Chinese LiFePO4 batteries with a label and a warranty slapped on them.

I see the warranty everywhere but nowhere do I see the terms of the warranty. What are they?

This is what I just copied from there website.
WARRANTY POLICY
In the unlikely event, you are having an issue with one of our batteries we have developed a straight forward warranty policy to help answer any questions you may have.

Battle Born Batteries offers a 3 year manufacturers defect warranty from the date of purchase. This warranty does not cover negligence or misuse of the battery. If it is deemed that battery was used improperly, you will be subject to a $150 an hour repair charge plus parts and shipping.

We also warrant all other complimentary products (inverters, converters, chargers etc) we sell are free from defect for 30 days from the date of purchase. After that time it is the responsibility of our manufacturing partners and a standard manufacturer’s warranty applies (1 year from date of purchase, unless otherwise stated by the manufacturer).

That could be a worthless warranty. "Manufacturers defect" could be defined very narrowly, and "negligence or misuse" could be interpretted very broadly.

Not really. Under US warranty law, the burden of proof is on the manufacturer, not the consumer, so they would have to PROVE that you caused the defect.

Moreover, such niceties are not merely academic. The law also provides for the collection of legal fees if you win a lawsuit, so there are plenty of spec lawyers around who will help you for free if you have any kind of a case.
