Mule Lighting warrants all products sold hereunder to be free from defect in manufacturing,
under normal and proper storage, installation, and use, for the period designated on the
Warranty Statement, calculated from the date of shipment (excluding fuses and lamps). All
items including batteries must be installed within 3 months from the date of shipment and be stored in temperatures between 0-25C for the battery warranty to be in effect.
Mule Lighting batteries are warranted as illustrated on the Warranty Statement. The Pro Rata
Warranty Period for batteries begins on the date the full warranty ends. A battery determined to
be defective during the Pro Rata Warranty Period shall be repaired or replaced at a cost equal
to the net price in effect at the time, reduced by the percentage obtained in multiplying 20% by
the number of full years remaining in the total warranty period. Such repair or replacement at
this adjusted price shall be the purchaser’s exclusive remedy.
Pro Rata Example: Battery concern develops at the beginning of year four of a five year
warranty (One year full, 4 Pro Rata = Five year total warranty period). Net Battery Cost: $20.00.
Each year of the five year warranty is valued at 20%; therefore you would subtract 60% (20%
for each of the three years the battery has been in service in this example) from the $20.00 net
cost, or $12.00. The Pro Rata Warranty would cover $8.00 or 40% of the remaining battery
Should a defect in the unit or batteries occur within the specified full warranty period, Mule will
repair or replace equipment without charge at Mule’s discretion. Such repair or replacement
shall be the purchaser’s exclusive remedy. Our liability extends only to the repair or replacement
of the defective part, Buyer is responsible for all costs to de-install defective products and re-
install replacement or repaired products and Mule Lighting will not be liable for labor or other
costs related to de-installation or re-installation.
