Batteries lose capacity over time. Trikke guarantees that after 350 charges the battery still has at least 70% capacity.
For warranty service by replacement of the battery Trikke Europe will, only compensate the "residual value" based on the already used capacity of the battery. The calculation on the "residual value" is based on a maximum 350 charges and the following calculation:
(Max. charges - number of charges) / max. charges = n%
The number of charges can be determined technically by Trikke Europe and thus the residual value can be determined. Example: If after 200 charges the battery is replaced, the "residual value" compensation. The residual value = 350-200 = 150/350 = 42%.
