      Campmor offers a 1 year warranty on all its products so within the first year if you had a problem with the product it would get returned to us. Beyond that, Steri Pen has a 3 year warranty so after the first year the item would be returned to Steri Pen for warranty issues. The UV light on the item is replaceable if you send the item back to the manufacturer.
