Laptop Battery and AC Adapter Replacement Policy

Wentworth issued laptop computers and A/C adapters have a 3 year manufacturer’s warranty. This covers defects only, not physical damage. Batteries for these laptops have a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty. Wentworth provides replacement batteries and AC adapters when they are covered under the manufacturer’s warranty.

Wentworth may, subject to available funds, on a one time basis replace a battery that is out of warranty.

Students are responsible for replacing lost, stolen, or damaged batteries, and AC adapters.

Third party (non branded) batteries and power cords are acceptable replacements; students can purchase either branded replacements or third party replacements, either through the Laptop program web site or from other sources.
