the ronson warranty
LAST UPDATED Jan 12, 2017
The Ronson Warranty is built upon the expectation that when you purchase a Ronson from ronson.com or an authorized retailer, you receive a guarantee of quality, engineered to withstand years of use.
Our guarantee: If, during your first two years of use upon purchase, you find any defect in material or workmanship, or the product should fail to function with proper use and care, we will gladly repair or replace it.
To receive the benefits of our Ronson 2 Years Warranty you must register your product with Ronson within 60 days of purchase or presentation of a valid warranty certificate with original purchase receipt at time of repair submission.
What is covered?
This warranty covers manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship for applicable products used in normal conditions, in compliance with the operating instructions, and in conjunction with accessories approved by Ronson.
This warranty applies only to Ronson qualified products purchased from ronson.com or an authorized Ronson retailer. This warranty is offered only to the original owner of the Ronson product, and it shall remain in force only as long as the original owner retains ownership of the Ronson product. This warranty is not transferable. This warranty is valid only upon registration at ronson.com within 60 days of date of purchase or presentation of a valid warranty certificate with original purchase receipt at time of repair submission. This warranty does not apply to normal wear and tear, nor to defects, malfunctions or failures that result from the abuse, neglect, improper maintenance, alteration, modification, accident, or misuse.

Wear items are defined as: flints, wicks, fuel worn down by regular use and the natural breakdown of colours and materials over extended time and use. All of these items are subject to varying wear life depending on use, load, weather, and environmental conditions. Premature wear or “defect” will be taken into account in any warranty claim involving a wear item.
A defect in material or workmanship is defined as: “a flaw, failure or cosmetic blemish caused by the manufacturing process or material that was not consistent with the original design”. This warranty implies no strength or fatigue value beyond regional government standards.
This Warranty is not meant to suggest or imply that the product is indestructible or will last forever. Every product has a useful lifecycle. The useful lifecycle as defined in this Warranty will vary depending on the use, environmental conditions and care the product receives. Severe conditions or climates, operating with heavy loads, or any other non-standard use can substantially shorten the useful product lifecycle. Any one or a combination of these conditions may result in an unpredictable failure that is not covered by the Ronson Warranty.
THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT AFFECT THE STATUTORY RIGHTS OF THE CONSUMER. WHERE APPLICABLE, LOCAL LAWS TAKE PRECEDENT OVER THIS WARRANTY CONTRACT.
THIS IS THE ONLY WARRANTY MADE BY RONSON. THERE ARE NO OTHER WARRANTIES. ANY WARRANTY THAT MIGHT OTHERWISE BE IMPLIED BY LAW INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE ARE LIMITED STRICTLY TO THE APPLICABLE LENGTH OF THIS WARRANTY.
This warranty applies to 2016 and newer products, for 2015 and older qualifying products, please consult your owner’s manual or contact Ronson or an authorized dealer for the applicable Warranty Terms and Conditions.
