What to expect when buying a refurbished Autel Robotics product this Black Friday
First, let’s understand what a refurbished product is. A refurbished Autel drone, remote controller, or battery is a pre-owned unit returned to the company for various reasons. But regardless of the reason, each product goes through extensive bench and flight testing, followed by post-flight analysis. And any part(s) needing replacement is handled during this process.
Autel Robotics guarantees all refurbished products will function “as new.” However, some important factors need to be considered while purchasing a refurbished product.
The retail packaging may not look fresh, and the boxes may show some wear. Also, the aircraft body, gimbal camera lens, charger, or remote controller may not have a plastic film on them. The propellers and the USB cables may also not be packaged like new.
Rest assured that all items will be clean, but they may have cosmetic blemishes such as scuffs and scratches on them. And returns for these cosmetic issues that do not affect operations will not be accepted by Autel once you purchase a refurbished product.
It’s also important to note that a refurbished battery may have been used for up to 10 cycles. Meanwhile, your aircraft unit would have been updated to the most current firmware version available during the refurbishment process.
Finally, every refurbished unit comes with a 6-month warranty against any manufacturer defects, so that’s your buyer protection right there. Happy shopping!
