Many products offered by USALight.com provide a manufacturer's warranty. Manufacturer warranty contact information is included with these products.
USALight.com takes great care in packing and shipping items to avoid transit-related damage. However, in the case that an item is received damaged, claims must be made within two working days of the damage. As the shipper, we will file the claim on the customer's behalf and arrange for replacement at no charge and no shipping, or arrange for refund. The package must be received (not refused under any circumstances) and inspected. Replacement and refund will be assessed according to the amount of the actual damage.
If the total amount of the product for replacement for either damage or defective, is less than ten ($10), a refund, rather than a replacement will be offered to the customer. Shipping small one item packages increases the chance of damage. Improper installation of products which cause damage voids any return, and warranty. Any modifications or improper use of any of our products that is not approved in writing by USALight.com shall void this warranty. USALight.com highly recommends consulting with a contractor or lighting specialist for applications of our products, and cannot be held liable for damages or injuries sustained from improper use of our products outside of the listed specifications
According to U.S. law, refund credits can only be returned back to the card of original purchase. In the event that a card can no longer be charged back (lost card etc.) an attempt on our part has to be made at least once and then a company check will be sent to the purchaser.
Shipping or Website Errors
Should the customer receive product not expressly ordered either by our shipping error or incorrect website information, the product will be picked up by our shipper and replacements shipped at no additional charge.
LED / Low Voltage Compatibility
Compatibility with low-voltage transformers can be an issue with LED MR16 replacement lamps. Transformers generally require a minimum connected load for proper operation of the connected lamps. Compared to the halogen MR16 lamps that they replace, LED versions draw significantly less power (e.g., 3 W vs. 20 W) and may not provide sufficient load to the transformer. Consequently, LED MR16 replacement lamps may not work or may flicker, strobe, or randomly shut down in an existing low-voltage lighting system. Similarly, existing dimmers, relays, and related-controls typically have minimum load requirements and may not operate properly with some LED replacement lamps.
Please consult a professional before using LED light bulbs in low voltage fixtures, as this combination will void your USALight.com warranty.
