Previously, the miniVAP’s battery had a warranty of one year.
Last year we reduced the warranty on the battery to three months, because the batteries are tested in a lab under stable conditions that don’t take into account all the real world situations.
Actually, some customers are using unofficial chargers that break the internal cells in less than five to ten cycles. Also, external conditions like going to the beach can overheat the battery and reduce the capacity dramatically.
Our manufacturer guaranties 500 charge/discharge cycles, so the battery should last around one year based on one to two recharges a day. Anyway, we are improving the batteries, and make them more efficient, and life-longer.
