Important Notice: Rechargeable Q-Link products (Life Optimizer, etc.) are only meant to be utilized with approved rechargeable batteries. Over time, rechargeable batteries become less effective and are prone to failure, which is the primary reason why rechargeable Q-Link products begin to function erratically. For safe, proper and optimal performance, and before deciding to return rechargeable Q-Link products for repair, replace old rechargeable batteries with new, high quality, 2600 mAh AA NIMH or up to 800 mAh 9V NIMH rechargeable batteries available from most any big box or electronic supply store, After fully charging new rechargeable batteries, retest your product for proper function.
Q-Link provides repair services for certain "Active" Q-Link products, including the Life Optimizer. For Life Optimizer units not covered under an eligible warranty, estimated repair costs (subject to change without notice) are as follows:
Case replacement (upper): USD $105.00
Case replacement (lower): USD $105.00

Even if your product is within an eligible warranty period, repairs may not be covered if the issues relate to improper use or abuse. Depending on the severity of the issue, age of unit, replacement component availability and other factors, some units may not be repairable. Product repair turnaround can take somewhere between 3-6 weeks.
To help streamline and improve our process for handling Q-Link product repair requests, we have changed our system to require the assignment of an RMA number prior to any Q-Link product being returned to us. We are not responsible for products returned to us for repair without an RMA number, and shipments without an RMA Number may be returned to sender.
To facilitate the issuance of an RMA Number, we require completion of our Product Repair Form (which can be completed and submitted online), which is accessible through the link provided at the bottom of this page. Once we receive your submission, an RMA Number will be emailed to you within 1-3 business days. This RMA Number must then be specified on your shipment to us as directed.
