Warranty and Returns

 

Vape4life provide high quality hardware, consumables and e-liquids/juices, sourced from reputable suppliers.  All hardware that vape4life sell are authentic and are not clones.  All of the products that we sell are brand new, not second hand or used.

 

vape4life adheres to the guidelines set out by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) for Refunds, Replacements and Warranty Returns. For more information please visit https://www.accc.gov.au/

 

We offer a replacement service for items that are deemed faulty due to a manufacturing fault (see below) however we do not offer refunds for change of mind, or because you do not like the product you have purchased.

 

We are happy to walk you through troubleshooting steps however if an item is sent back or bought back to us without following these then you will be responsible for the cost of returning the item back to you if the item is not found to have a genuine fault.  Please click here to have a look at common trouble shooting issues.

 

Different devices work in different ways and it is up to you to decide what device will be the best for your style of vaping before making a purchase as all sales are final.

 

 

Warranty

 

Everything we sell comes with a limited warranty. On receiving your order from vape4life, please check that all components are in working condition. While every care is taken to ensure that there are no faults with hardware there can be occasions, as with all electronics, where there can be issues.

 

Our products are broken up into 3 categories for warranty purposes as per below;

 

 

 

Consumables

 

Tanks (clearomizers, atomizers and cartomizers including glass components), wick, wire, coils, plastic bottles, vape bands, cotton and other items deemed as consumables are designed to be replaced over time and do not come with any kind of warranty unless received as DOA (Dead on Arrival). Please contact us within 24 hours of receipt of your package for any DOA consumables. We do not offer any kind of refund on consumables however we do offer store credit if they are found to be DOA.

 

 

Batteries

 

Batteries, battery chargers, starter kits and mods carry a 14 day DOA policy. If you have issues with a product during this time please contact us for a product return and replacement or refund.

 

Please note that when using any kind of battery extreme care and caution must be taken. The batteries we sell are an advanced item and we take no responsibility or accept any liability for misuse, damage, injury to a person, item or other personal effects as a result of use of these items.

Ensuring that a battery is inserted the correct way into a device, and that the positive and negative ends are in the correct positions

 

Not charging your device on a phone charger (cable vs wall adapter), or high amperage charger as this can damage the device & void the warranty of the device

None of the liquids sold via this website contain nicotine.

 

Due to health regulations and issues around hygiene best practices we are unable to refund or exchange any liquid products once they have left the store. This includes DIY concentrates, PG & VG.

 

Some people have been known to have an adverse reaction to Propylene Glycol and/or Vegetable Glycerine, if you have not used these before please exercise caution when using for the first time. If you have any kind of adverse reaction please cease use of the product and seek medical advice before further use.

DIY products are used at your own risk and you should consult a specialist DIY forum for advice on how to use flavouring concentrates. 

 

 

 

Warranty Assessment

 

Please note that all items will need to be assessed before a warranty claim can be honoured and you may be required to send photos and or/ a video of the issue to service@vape4life.com.au for assessment. Having 4 retail outlets and an online store means that we are quite often very busy.  Please allow 3 working weekdays, not including the day the item is received, for your item to be assessed. 

 

If the product is required to be returned to us you can either bring it into one of our 4 stores or you can post the item back to us.

 

If the item is found to be faulty and by no fault of the user, we will refund the total postage cost incurred to send the item back to us. Please ensure that you include the receipt for the cost of postage when sending the item back to us. If the receipt is not enclosed or you cannot provide proof of postage then we cannot reimburse this cost to you. By sending an item in for warranty you are agreeing that if there is no fault found then you will bear the cost of the item being returned to you.

 

If the item is found to be in working condition, and not faulty, the purchaser is responsible for the postage costs incurred to return the item. Prior to returning the item, vape4life will contact you to organise payment of postage costs, and once payment is received, the item will then be returned.

 

All warranties are null and void if:

 

- The item is found to have liquid seepage throughout which includes throughout a battery, a mod, a 510 connector, any electrical component or liquid seepage as a result of misuse

 

- The item has been damaged as a result of the item being dropped, knocked over or left in circumstances such as extreme heat (including a car on a hot day) or submerged in water or other liquid

If you are unsure of what a compatible wall charger is please ask us prior to purchase or use. All the devices we sell should be charged at under 1amp.

 

- If batteries are found to have been inserted incorrectly into a device (the positive and negative ends are incorrectly aligned), or battery misuse is found to be the cause of the issue. All items sold on our website that require a stand alone battery must use 20 A or higher IMR/INR high discharge rate.

 

- All items sold within our store and on our website have the item serial number recorded by our suppliers for warranty purposes, if serial numbers do not match these records no warranty will be honoured

What if I have changed my mind?

 

Vape4life do not offer refunds for change of mind so please choose carefully before purchasing any item.

 

 

What do I do if I have received a faulty or incorrect item?

 

Firstly, for products you think may be faulty please check our trouble shooting guide which can be found here.  

 

If you happen to receive a faulty or incorrect item please contact service@vape4life.com.au within 24 hours to arrange for return and replacement/refund in the form of a store credit to the value of your returned item. All faulty items will need to be sent back to us in the original packaging for assessment before we will refund or replace the item.  The original packaging is required as more often than not the serial number for hardware is found on the inside packaging, and vape4life are required to supply this serial number to our suppliers in order to claim warranty.

 

Postage for faulty items is at the customers expense and will be reimbursed if the item is found to be faulty by the manufacturer. Please note that if the item is not found to be faulty then postage costs incurred will not be covered by vape4life.
