Vacuum accessories are components that experience natural wear and tear over time requiring periodic replacement. The warranty for these products solely covers manufacturing defects, such as sizing or fitting issues making them unsuitable for their intended use. Normal wear and tear, along with other defects not resulting from manufacturing, are not covered under the warranty.

*Limited Lifetime Warranty: 

A:  Limited lifetime warranties only apply to the original purchaser and do not transfer.  Second-hand business-class products or products sold by unauthorized resellers do not carry a limited manufacturer warranty. RMA requests for such products will be denied.  

B:  Warranties on products that are discontinued/end-of-life will be limited to a period of (5) years from the end-of-life date, as set by TP-Link USA. Discontinued status is based on the model number and not the hardware revision.

C:  Only the product and its internal parts are covered under the limited lifetime warranty.  External parts such as external power supplies, modules, and other accessories may be covered under separate warranties.  Please refer to TP-Link business-class accessories for more information.
