We’ve delved into Milwaukee’s battery warranty policy, and it turns out there’s more to it than meets the eye. Each battery pack comes with a unique warranty period, dependent on the specific model you purchase.
What Happens Under a Warranty Claim
Once Milwaukee determines that your battery is eligible for warranty service, they will either repair or replace the battery pack. However, before they can begin the warranty process, you’ll need to return the battery pack to a Milwaukee factory service center or an authorized service station. Remember, you’ll be responsible for shipping the battery pack back, so be sure to send it freight prepaid and insured.
To facilitate a Milwaukee battery warranty claim, include a copy of your proof of purchase along with your return.
How Long Are Milwaukee Batteries Warrantied For?
Interestingly, the warranty period for Milwaukee batteries varies depending on the battery pack you choose. Here’s an exhaustive list of batteries, their descriptions, and associated warranties. You may find some surprises, especially considering that all Milwaukee batteries come with a standard 3-year warranty. The following warranty periods specifically apply to the United States and Canada.
The Fine Print
Please note that the warranty period for Milwaukee batteries is either 5 years from the date of purchase or 2000 charges—whichever comes first. Milwaukee offers a free replacement for defective batteries during the first 1000 charges or the initial 2-year warranty period. After that, the remaining fees, up to 2000 charges or the remaining 5 years from the date of purchase, will be pro-rated. This means you’ll receive an additional 1,000 charges or a 3-year pro-rated warranty on these battery packs, depending on usage.
Do I Need to Register My Battery?
Good news! You don’t need to register your battery pack to receive warranty service according to Milwaukee Tool. However, it’s crucial to save your receipts. If you can’t provide proof of purchase when requesting warranty service, Milwaukee will determine the warranty period based on the product’s date of manufacture. So, it’s best to keep your receipts filed away for emergencies.
