We like to keep things simple for both you and us.

Easy To Read Version:

Essentially, all of our products come with a Repair or Replace Warranty. If any product you purchased from DeXTech doesn't meet the quality standard, we'll be more than happy to sort this out for you.

Our Warranties are serviced on a Standard Return-To-Base (RTB) Basis. This means should you unfortunately find fault in your product, simply send it back to us and we'll arrange the Warranty Service Job.  

Please note change of mind returns incur  a $45 restocking  and administration fee, so please choose carefully. Change of mind refunds can be processed within 1 month of the purchase date. 

The Small Print Version:

The New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act (1993) as well as other laws in the jurisdiction guarantee certain conditions, warranties and undertakings, and give you other legal rights, in relation to the quality and fitness for purpose of DeXTech Ltd products sold in New Zealand.

For products sold in New Zealand, these guarantees cannot be modified nor excluded by any contract, except in those circumstances contemplated by section 43 (2) of the New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act.
You are entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality. You are also entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure of the goods. What constitutes a major failure is an objective test of reasonableness and is not an individual consumer’s point of view, where the purpose of the product cannot be regained by repair or replacement.

Nothing in this Warranty purports to modify or exclude the conditions, warranties and undertakings, and other legal rights, under the New Zealand Consumer Guarantees Act and other laws. This Warranty gives you additional protection for goods purchased from DeXTech Ltd, and identifies a preferred approach to resolving warranty claims which will be quickest and simplest for all parties, subject to the exclusions, terms and conditions below.

Coverage and Application
  • A. DeXTech Ltd NZ warrants that your DeXTech product:
    • is of acceptable quality;
    • does not have a latent defect.
  • B. For the purpose of this Warranty, a "DeXTech product" is a hardware product which:
    • was produced or sold on behalf of DeXTech ; and
    • is used under normal conditions of use ; and
    • was purchased on DeXTech's Online Store (www.dextech.co.nz) or by purchased from an Authorised Reseller or Distributor of DeXTech products; and
    • was purchased in New Zealand, OR has been exclusively in use in the country in which it was sold in.
Warranty Period
  • A. The period in which the Warranty is valid for is specific to each product, 30 Days UNLESS otherwise stated, or where an extended warranty has been purchased along with the Original Product.
Warranty Claim
  • A. If you consider that the DeXTech product which you have purchased is not of acceptable quality, has a latent defect, or is otherwise not compliant with the conditions, warranties, undertakings, and legal rights given to you under New Zealand Law (for example, it appears faulty, or does not work at all or properly), you can make a claim under this Warranty.
  • B. Except where an International Product Warranty has been provided with your DeXTech product, warranty service will only be provided within New Zealand, or if the DeXTech product has been in use exclusively in the country it was originally purchased in. For example a DeXTech product purchased in Malaysia can only be claimed under Warranty in Malaysia. Where products have been used in different countries, products may still be eligible for Manufacturer Warranties. In which case, DeXTech will help in this process.

If you wish to make a claim in relation to a DeXTech product, please send that DeXTech product to the nearest DeXTech Centre or authorised service centre for assessment, the cost of which will be borne by DeXTech if your claim is determined to be valid pursuant to this Warranty. Whenever possible, the product should be returned in its original carton and packing or alternatively in packing suitable to prevent damage to the product. DeXTech will not accept responsibility for damage to the product during this transport caused by unsuitable or inadequate packing.
  • B. If you believe that it is not reasonable for you to send the DeXTech product to DeXTech or an authorised repair service centre, DeXTech will liaise with you to determine the best way in which to inspect and, if necessary, repair the DeXTech product the subject of the claim under this Warranty. Liaison is done on a goodwill basis by DeXTech, please contact us in these cases as soon as possible.
