INHERENT RISK OF LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES:

Lithium-Ion batteries (and other rechargeable batteries) are potentially dangerous. Lithium Ion batteries, especially when subjected to abusive conditions, may become hot, explode, and/or ignite and can cause serious injury to person or damage property. Island City eBikes holds no responsibility for any injury or damage caused by the use of any Lithium-Ion batteries (or other rechargeable batteries). You, the purchaser and/or user of any Lithium-Ion Battery or product containing Lithium-Ion Batteries are responsible for the use of such products.

When using a Lithium-Ion battery, never connect the positive and negative terminals of the battery to each other with any conductive material (also known as a “short” or “shorting” the battery). This will cause the battery to rapidly discharge energy into the conductive material, heating both the material and the battery, and potentially causing injury or damage from the battery or material becoming hot, igniting, or exploding. Never store your battery with any conductive materials that may short the battery such as necklaces, hairpins, or other metal objects.

Keeping your battery in a safe location can help reduce, but not necessarily eliminate, the risks associated with using a Lithium-Ion battery. Never expose your battery to water (especially salt water), allow the battery to get wet, nor store the battery in any location where it may come into contact with water. Always keep your battery in a cool location, and out of direct sunlight. The inside of cars can regularly be tens of degrees higher than the outside temperature, especially during summer and when the car is in direct sunlight. Do not place the battery in or near fire, stoves, microwaves, or other heating devices.

Always turn your battery off when not in use. Never charge your battery when unattended. Never allow the battery to become overcharged. Even with the use of recommended smart chargers, damaged or malfunctioning batteries can still become overcharged and become hot, ignite, or explode. Due to this risk, never charge your battery unattended. Immediately discontinue use if at any time the battery emits an odor, feels hot, changes shape or color, or appears abnormal in any way. Never use water to cool down an overheated battery. Never compress, put excessive pressure on, or puncture your battery. If for any reason you come into contact with the acid from inside the battery, rinse well with water or vinegar and immediately seek medical care.

EBIKE ORDERS:

Please consider your purchase of an eBike carefully.

*It is illegal for ANYONE to ship lithium batteries unless they are a Certified Hazardous Material shipper. Your eBike has a lithium ion battery.

Lithium Ion batteries are a Class Nine Hazardous material and therefore are subject to all federal laws pertaining to handling, packaging, marking, labeling, and preparing for shipment. It is stated in the Code of Federal Regulations (Title 49, Parts 100-180) that the shipper (one returning the battery) is solely responsible for all the laws contained in these Federal Regulations. Failure to know and follow ALL the shipping regulations concerning shipping of lithium batteries can and will result in a minimum fine of $75,000. If a carrier (USPS, FedEx, UPS, or other) determines you are improperly shipping a lithium battery he/she is bound by law to report such shipment to the Department of Transportation for investigation. Therefore, if you are returning a eBike to Island City Ebikes you must use the services of a licensed hazardous materials shipper. If a eBike arrives at our facilities that is shipped illegally it will be refused. These laws apply to all companies that sell lithium batteries. 

No returns after 7 days of receiving

To be eligible for a return, the bike must be unused, free from dirt, dust, or any fragrances, and in the same packaging and condition that you received it
Customer pays all shipping fees including shipping for original order. (this is withheld from refund)

BIKE PERFORMANCE

Please note that information regarding the expected range on a single charge on one of our ebikes is an estimate, not a guarantee. There are many factors that contribute to actual, real-world range for an ebike battery such as age of the battery, temperature, level of assist, speed, payload, and terrain. Given the right conditions, it is possible to get less than the expected minimum range or greater than the expected maximum range.

BICYCLE (eBike) WARRANTY:

All electric bikes sold by Island City Bikes LLC are sold as used. Our bikes are purchased new then modified into electric bikes. Therefore the manufacturer does not extend their warranty to these bikes. However, Island City Bikes, LLC offers a 30 day warranty on the motor and on the bike. Any part of the bike fails due to manufacturer defect within the first 30 days of purchase, that part will be replaced. Please note this does not cover the installation of any replacement part. The part will be replace free of charge only if the bike can be brought to our Alameda location. If the motor fails within 30 days the motor may be replaced or repaired at no cost to the owner if the bike can be delivered to our Alameda location. If you ship your bike for repair DO NOT SHIP THE BATTERY. Island City Bikes will pay for the return shipping only.
