1. Where to purchase products covered by the PlanetechPRO® Limited Lifetime Warranty
All PlanetechPRO® products have been designed and built to a higher standard and are eligible for the limited lifetime warranty. Purchasers want to ensure they are meeting basic program requirements as they move along the purchasing process. Knowing these things ahead of time makes the return process a lot easier should a return become necessary.
Purchase from Planet Technology USA, an authorized reseller for PLANET Technology
To be sure your device is eligible for the lifetime warranty, you must purchase it from Planet Technology USA as we are the only company offering this warranty. This step ensures that only genuine PlanetechPRO® products make it into the hands of our customers.
NOTE: See product page to confirm the exact details of the warranty for each product. Warranties vary for some products.
The serial number must remain intact
Your device must also display the original factory serial number. The serial number may not be defaced or altered. Any device where the serial number has been tampered with is not eligible for the limited lifetime warranty program.
Parties that qualify for the limited lifetime warranty
The limited lifetime warranty covers the original purchaser of the PlanetechPRO® product. All Planet Technology USA limited warranties, including lifetime warranties, are not transferable.
This warranty does not apply if the Planet Technology USA product fails due to damage from shipment, handling, storage, accident, abuse or misuse, or if it has been used or maintained in a manner not conforming to product manual instructions, has been modified in any way, or has had any serial number removed or defaced.
Battery type can negate eligibility for the warranty
For Planet Technology USA products that can use replaceable batteries, use of only high-quality, non-counterfeit, and non-rechargeable batteries is recommended. The use of rechargeable batteries or inferior-quality batteries that cause damage to your Planet Technology USA product will void this warranty.
DIY repair negates the warranty
Repair or modification of the product by anyone other than Planet Technology USA or a Planet Technology USA approved agent will void this warranty.

Products that are not part of the PlanetechPRO® line will continue with their existing warranties.
3. How to register your eligible product for PlanetechPRO® Lifetime Warranty
To obtain warranty service under this PlanetechPRO® warranty, during the Planet Technology USA product’s warranted period, as set forth above, you must first register that product.
