Is battery warranty worth it?

2016-03-18, 14:51 PM

I added the battery warranty to my warranty but am not sure what it covers. Does the battery need to literally go dead or does it cover wear and tear where it starts to hold less of a charge? Thanks.

I was wondering the same, I believe its a one time sealed battery replacement for any reason (inop, wear & tear)

There is no "always correct" answer.  Warranty upgrades are good if you need them. How long do you tend to keep your machines?  How many hours do you use the machine?  How often is the battery discharged?  What are the ambient temperatures where it is used or stored?
