1.      Limited Warranty.

Innovolt, Inc. (“Innovolt” or “Us”) warrants to the end-user of the Device that such Devices, when used normally in accordance with the published guidelines, are free of defects in design, assembly, material and workmanship, and shall protect against power Occurrences, as defined below, for  the Warranty Period (the “Warranty”).  For all returned Devices that are not faulty or failing, Purchaser shall reimburse Innovolt for all costs and expenses related to delivery and testing of the alleged faulty or failing device during the Warranty Period.   This Warranty is valid for the original purchaser of the Innovolt Devices, or for the end-purchaser of such Device when sold through distribution channels. Innovolt will repair or replace, at its option, any defective Device returned to us free of charge during the Warranty Period.   The Warranty Period is one (1) year from shipment of the Device.  Additional warranty coverage may be purchased at the time of purchase.  An “Occurrence” is defined as one of the five major power grid disturbances - Under-voltage, Over-voltage, Voltage Sag/Current Inrush, Brownout, Voltage Spike/Surge, as demonstrated on the Device – so long as the Device is properly connected to an AC power line with protective ground.   

 

All above warranties are null and void if:

  3. Innovolt determines that the damage to the device did not result from the Occurrence or that no Occurrence in fact took place.

All Devices must be plugged directly into the power source and must not be "daisy-chained" together in serial fashion with other power strips or other Devices or extension cords.  A three-to two-prong adapter may not be used.  Any such installation voids the Warranty.  The Devices are not for use with aquariums, on any water-related products, and should be used for their intended design, indoors and in dry locations.

When claims are settled, INNOVOLT reserves the right to be subrogated under any existing insurance policies the claimant may have.

  1. The Asset is not registered;
  2. The end-user does not follow the Protection Promise claim process as defined in Appendix A;
  3. Innovolt determines that the Device or Asset has not been properly shipped or installed, has not been used in accordance with its published specifications, has been altered in any way or has been tampered with or damaged, or
