Artisan Power® Return Policy
You may return most new, unopened items within 30 days of delivery for a full refund. We'll also pay the return shipping costs if the return is a result of our error (you received an incorrect or defective item, etc.).
You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
If you need to return an item, please Contact Us with your order number and details about the product you would like to return. We will respond quickly with instructions for how to return items from your order.
Troubleshooting: First, if you are returning the product due to a technical issue, we recommend that you first contact our Customer Service Department at 1-978-562-4300 so that we can attempt a few quick troubleshooting tips before proceeding with the return process. We have a few proven methods that will often solve technical difficulties, eliminating the need for return or exchange. If the troubleshooting does not work for you, you have the following options for the return.
Money-back Guarantee: All of our products carry a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied with any of our products, for any reason, follow the return procedure below for a refund, credit or replacement within 30 days of purchase. For full refund, please make sure you pack back the UNUSED item(s) back to original package. All refunds are issued in the same form of payment used in the original transaction within 30 business days of receiving your return. Important: If you purchase multiple batteries and opt for a return within 30 days, please try only ONE set at a time to determine whether you are satisfied before opening the rest. Please note that after the first set, only unopened products, in original packaging qualify for a refund.
Returns after 30 days: After the initial 30 days of purchase, we offer replacements but no refunds for defective products up to 12 months from original purchase. Due to our aggressive pricing, shipping charges are non-refundable unless we shipped incorrect item(s). Refunds are issued in the same form of payment as in the original transaction within 30 business days of receiving your return. Please review our Return Policy for more details on how to get a refund.
