CHI Palm Replacement BatteryBattery Pack

Does your battery need replacement?

If your unit has stopped working or only works for a short amount of time after a full charge, you may simply need a replacement battery and not a more expensive repair. Rechargeable Nickel Cadmium batteries have a shorter use life than a Lithium Ion battery.

If you are experiencing issues that may be related to the battery (ex. machine not holding a charge) or the lights, please attempt the following:


Remove battery from unit for at least 10 seconds, then reinstall the battery and turn on the machine

Lights Malfunctioning

Charge for at least 8 hours to see if lights reset. If not, perform a hard reset.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question about your repair or the repair process? Many of your questions may be answered below.

Can my machine be repaired?

In most cases, yes. Our repair department performs a full inspection to diagnose the problem and tests every machine to ensure its functionality once the work is complete.

What if my machine is unrepairable?

If your machine is 10+ years old, we cannot guarantee that every issue can be repaired as those machines are no longer being manufactured and spare parts are limited. If the repair cannot be completed for any reason, we will contact you with that information and provide you with alternative options.

How long will my repair take?

Most repairs take about 8-10 business days, which includes transit time to/from us.

Please be aware that delivery carriers may be experiencing delays during peak times. When shipping your machine(s) to us, it is your responsibility to monitor the package while it is still in transit. We do not take responsibility for your machine until it is delivered, and we have it in-house.

Will this be covered under warranty?

Every machine comes with a 1-year warranty that begins from the date of purchase. If a repair or replacement is needed within this period, it will be done at no charge. If any work falls outside of this warranty period, you will be responsible for all associated costs.

Do you require using a certain carrier when I ship my device to you?

No, we do not. You may use whatever carrier (ex. Post Office, UPS, FedEx, etc.) is most convenient for you.

Is my package insured?

We ship packages via USPS Priority Mail, which automatically provides insurance up to $50. If you would like to insure your package(s) when shipping to us, you are responsible for those costs.

Still Have a Question?

We’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Email us at or call us at (800) 682-7061 

All repairs come with a 3-month warranty

Our machines are not waterproof – any water damage will void your warranty.
