Our Battery Comes With a 15-Year Warranty5

The Vercise Genus DBS battery is warranted for 15 years5. Some batteries lose strength over time and require more frequent charging. But the Vercise Genus DBS battery contains a proprietary lithium ion Zero Volt technology that keeps the battery going strong. In fact, after 15 years of use, our battery is still going strong-operating at 90% of its capacity. That's why we can afford to give it such a powerful warranty.
