OnePlus offering battery replacement

Oneplus 9T

There are some reports surfacing that claim that Chinese brand OnePlus has started a scheme thereby which the company is giving battery replacement for the sake of some of its older models in India – and that too at a rather minimal fee for labor. The smartphones that will enjoy this new scheme include the OnePlus 3, OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, OnePlus 6 and also, the OnePlus 6T.

The scheme is indeed already subject to being operational and the owners of these devices have the power to walk into any OnePlus store so as to request the service at hand. However, if you don’t want to walk into any store for the battery replacement process to take place, you also have the power to book the service online instead – however, if you opt for this service, then you will only be entitled for a 50% discount.

There happens to be no official reason given with regards to the move however, it may not be unconnected with the fact that the brand’s inventories of the stated batteries has remained rather stagnant for an extended period of time. In addition to all this, these batteries are also rather old and hence it’s very unlikely that there would be a spike in demand for them. OnePlus hence is seeking the objective of customer goodwill and loyalty courtesy of this particular gesture – however, several options are still open for its disposal of inventory.

For now, it happens to be unclear as to how long this promo will end remain active, however, one would have to imagine that it would remain ongoing until OnePlus eventually runs out of stock. One thing is for sure though, lots of the older models of OnePlus phones in the specified category will end up benefiting from the replacement program. OnePlus is also mum though on the number of unused batteries that it has within its inventory.
