Battery Safety and Warnings

Battery and Rechargeable Battery Warranty Policy 

Batteries are not covered by our Lifetime Warranty.  We offer 6-months exchange with proof-of-purchase for PT 18650, 18500, 26650 and RCR123 batteries only.  2-year exchange with proof-of-purchase for Destroyer, X3000 and Thunderbolt sealed battery pack.  Disposable CR123 batteries are not warranted.  

PowerTac Lifetime Warranty is NOT valid if third-party (non-PowerTac) branded batteries cause damage to the flashlight due to improper type used, misuse, leakage or explosion.  Consumer assumes all responsibility for proper battery installation and usage.

BATTERY PRECAUTION – Please read!

Use only “Protected” lithium-ion batteries equipped with PCB (protection circuit board) or PCM (Protection Circuit Module).  All PowerTac-branded batteries have this protection circuit. “Unprotected” lithium-ion batteries are NOT recommended – never use – serious risk of personal injury or property damage may occur due to possible explosion.  Do not attempt to recharge disposable batteries such as a CR123A Li-ion commonly used in flashlights.

Use caution when working with Li-ion cells, they are very sensitive to charging characteristics and may explode or burn if mishandled.  Make sure the user has appropriate understanding of Li-ion rechargeable batteries (such as 18650, 18500, 26650, RCR123A) in charging, discharging and assembly before use.  DO NOT mix and match old and new, used and unused batteries; be sure Voltage and mAh ratings are the same.  PowerTac is not responsible for any personal or property damage caused by misuse or mishandling of Li-ion batteries and/or chargers. 

Use ONLY the recommended battery-type for your particular PowerTac flashlight.  Important – please do your research and make sure your battery is compatible. If you need help in selecting the proper battery or have general questions – please call us (919) 239-4470 or email: info@powertac.com.  We are here to help.  “Protected” Rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries are very reliable, long-lasting and safe if used and recharged in a proper manner.
