TP-LINK Replacement & Warranty

Warranty & Replacement Policy

Limited Warranty 

TP-Link UK Ltd (“TP-Link UK”) provides a limited warranty period on different type of product which is purchased from our authorized TP-Link UK distributor/retailer. It is a risk for customer to purchase a TP-Link product from an unauthorized dealer or personal because our warranty will not be valid on unoriginal product.

TP-Link UK warranty starts from the purchase date of your original product no matter how many replacement are made during the warranty period. The warranty covers the main device, antenna and external power supply for any material or workmanship defects. Packaging, various cables, software products, technical data and other accessories are not covered under this warranty. PLEASE RETAIN A COPY OF YOUR INVOICE/RECEIPT to verify the purchase for any future warranty claim. TP-Link UK may decline to provide a replacement if the customer is failed to produce the effective invoice/receipt.

TP-Link UK will only replace with a same model or an equivalent product as long as the defective product is covered by the term of our warranty. The maximum liability of TP-Link UK is equal to or no higher than the product's purchased price and TP-Link UK will not offer any option for refund because we as the manufacturer do not sell our product to the end user directly.
