  • In the case of two bulbs being purchased (a pair), both must be returned unless agreed otherwise.
  • The failed bulbs must be returned to us in order for us to diagnostically test it to improve future product development.
  • The customer is responsible for the postage costs to return the failed bulbs to us, but we will pay for the postage for the replacement bulbs to be sent to the customer.
  • The failed bulbs must be returned to us before a warranty claim can be administered.
  • Only one warranty claim may be issued per order in the specified warranty period.
    • Please note: if you have placed a new order as part of the warranty claim you will not be able to claim against this order at it will be refunded in full once we receive the faulty bulbs from you.
  • If you are placing a new order as part of the warranty claim you must place an order for the same item you are claiming against (unless the item has become discontinued. In this instance we will recommend an alternative).
  • If a claim is authorised then the customer must return the bulbs to us within 14 business days. If the bulbs are not received within this time then the claim may not be accepted.
  • The warranty is offered as a goodwill offer and may be terminated at any time in the future. This does not affect your statutory rights.
