By providing Avastor with the serial number on your device, we will advise you if the product is still under warranty.

Each product is given a serial number at the final stage of testing, which is then recorded in our database. Unfortunately, Avastor cannot honor any warranty without a valid serial number sticker, or one that has been defaced or altered.
