SlingStudio Battery Warranty, Safety, Regulatory and Legal Information

What Does This Warranty Cover?

Sling Media L.L.C. (“Sling Media”) warrants your SlingStudio Battery against defects in materials and workmanship of SlingStudio Battery purchased or leased from Sling Media or its authorized resellers or partners and extends only to the original user of such products under ordinary use in accordance with the documentation and/or user manuals provided or made available with your SlingStudio Battery. This warranty does not cover any Sling Media software provided with your SlingStudio or other third-party hardware or software. Your use of any such third-party hardware or software will be governed by the terms and conditions of any such third-party hardware or software license or warranty agreement accompanying such third-party hardware or software; or as agreed to when you set up an account for your SlingStudio Battery. This warranty is valid only in the United States.

How Long Does the Coverage Last?

If your SlingStudio Battery was purchased from an authorized reseller or directly from Sling Media, your SlingStudio Battery is warranted to be free of defects in materials and workmanship for one (1) year from the original date of purchase (the “Warranty Period”). If you are leasing your SlingStudio Battery from an authorized Sling Media partner or from Sling Media directly, your SlingStudio Battery is warranted for one (1) year from the date your lease began, unless a different period is specified in your lease agreement or other agreement pursuant to which you obtain your SlingStudio Battery.

What will Sling Media Do?

In the event your SlingStudio Battery is defective and (i) the defect is covered by this warranty; and (ii) the defect arises during the Warranty Period; and (iii) you follow the instructions for contacting the Sling Media customer services department for SlingStudio Battery, then Sling Media will, to the extent permitted by law, replace your defective SlingStudio Battery with a new or refurbished SlingStudio Battery that is functionally equivalent to the Battery being replaced. This limited warranty will continue to apply to any replacement SlingStudio Battery that we provide, but only for the remainder of the original Warranty Period applicable to you.

How Do You Get Warranty Service?

For specific instructions about how to obtain warranty service for your SlingStudio Battery during the Warranty Period, please contact the Sling Media customer service department at 1-866-974-2570. Proof of purchase may be required to verify eligibility.

Important Warning:  YOU MUST NOT ATTEMPT TO RETURN YOUR SLINGSTUDIO BATTERY VIA ANY COMMERCIAL MAIL OR PARCEL CARRIER BY ANY MEANS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. PLEASE SEE THE SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS BELOW AND COMPLY WITH ANY AND ALL LOCAL LAWS REGARDING THE HANDLING AND DISPOSAL OF BATTERIES. YOU HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT SLING MEDIA ASSUMES NO LIABILITY FOR YOUR IMPROPER OR ILLEGAL HANDLING OR DISPOSAL OF THE SLINGSTUDIO BATTERY.

What Does This Warranty Not Cover?

You may only exercise this warranty from the country in which you purchased or leased your SlingStudio Battery. Sling Media will not send replacement products to addresses outside the country in which you purchased your SlingStudio Battery. If your SlingStudio Battery is not covered by this warranty, Sling Media may (but is not obligated to) offer to provide out-of-warranty service to you at Sling Media's then-current rates, which includes the cost to ship a replacement SlingStudio Battery to you that has the same or similar features. This warranty does not cover the following:

  • Installation or setup of your SlingStudio Battery. If you are eligible for technical support under Sling Media's technical support policies, Sling Media can help answer your questions about the setup and installation of your SlingStudio Battery.
  • Cosmetic damage, damage due to lightning, electrical or telephone line surges, battery leakage, fire, flood, or other acts of Nature, accident, misuse, abuse, improperly tampering or opening the product, repair or alteration other than by Sling Media or an authorized service provider of Sling Media, use of accessories not recommended by Sling Media, negligence, commercial or institutional use, or improper or neglected maintenance.
  • Equipment sold AS IS or WITH ALL FAULTS, shipping and handling, removal or reinstallation, nor shipping damage if the equipment was not packed and shipped in the manner prescribed.
  • Sling Media software or any non-Sling Media hardware or software provided, bundled with or purchased with your SlingStudio Battery. Your use of any such non-Sling Media hardware or software will be governed by the terms and conditions of any third party warranty or other agreement accompanying such non-Sling Media hardware or software.

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT AS PROVIDED UNDER THIS WARRANTY IS YOUR EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AND IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND REMEDIES, AND SLING MEDIA SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMS ALL STATUTORY AND/OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND AGAINST HIDDEN OR LATENT DEFECTS. IN THE EVENT SLING MEDIA CANNOT LAWFULLY DISCLAIM STATUTORY OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR REMEDIES, THEN TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, ANY AND ALL SUCH WARRANTIES AND REMEDIES SHALL BE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE DURATION OF THIS EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTY AND TO THE REPLACEMENT OF YOUR SLINGSTUDIO BATTERY. Some states do not allow limitations on how long a statutory or implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW, SLING MEDIA IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHER INDIRECT DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF, RELATING TO OR INCURRED IN CONNECTION WITH USE OF THE SLINGSTUDIO BATTERY, WHETHER FOR BREACH OF WARRANTY OR BROUGHT UNDER ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. 

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL SLING MEDIA'S LIABILITY, IF ANY, EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE PAID FOR YOUR SLINGSTUDIO BATTERY.

SLING MEDIA RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REFUSE TO HONOR THIS WARRANTY IF IT DETERMINES THAT ANY OF THE EXCEPTIONS DESCRIBED ABOVE HAVE CAUSED YOUR SLINGSTUDIO BATTERY NOT TO HAVE PERFORMED PROPERLY.

THIS WARRANTY SHALL BE VOID IF ANY FACTORY-APPLIED IDENTIFICATION MARK, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE SERIAL NUMBER, HAS BEEN ALTERED OR REMOVED. THIS WARRANTY SHALL ALSO BE VOID IF THE SLINGSTUDIO BATTERY HAS BEEN OPENED BY AN UNAUTHORIZED PERSON.

This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may have other rights, which vary from state to state in the United States. To the extent that this limited warranty is inconsistent with local law, this warranty shall be deemed modified to be consistent with such local law.
