MaxxStick Warranty

Joystick Warranty

We hope you enjoy our product half as much as we enjoyed making it for you. That’s why we stand behind our MaxxStick products with a manufacturer’s warranty. Read below for more details. 

  1. What is a Valid Proof of Purchase?
    • For any Limited Warranty claim, valid Proof of Purchase is required. A valid Proof of Purchase is defined as one of the following:
      • A dated sales receipt from an authorized Reseller or the MaxxStick website. The receipt must show the Product description and price.
      • A dated official e-mail from an authorized online MaxxStick Dealer or Reseller confirming the purchase and shipment of the Product. The confirmation e-mail must show the Product description and price.
      • An order number from Amazon.
    • Some examples of a non-valid Proof of Purchase are:
      • The UPC bar code from the box.
      • A picture of the actual Product.
      • A Certificate of Authenticity.
      • Receipts from non-authorized MaxxStick Dealers.
      • Receipts from any online auction sites, liquidators or clearance houses.
      • A receipt or order number from any vendor other than
      • Cancelled checks.
      • Credit card statements.
*MaxxStick reserves the right to take any action to protect itself against all forms of suspicious claims, including, without limitation, requiring further verification of identity and details of the claimant and qualifying purchases as well as debarment of the claim.
  1. What if I don’t have Proof of Purchase?
    • If you purchased directly from or Amazon, we may have a record of your purchase and can locate it for you. Just let us know the order number and shipping address. 
    • If you purchased from a MaxxStick dealer or reseller, contact the dealer or reseller and see if they can provide a copy of your receipt. They will often have your purchase history on file and be able to supply a copy of the receipt for you.
    • If the Product was a gift we suggest you ask the giver to provide you with a receipt. You may also ask them if they could handle the Limited Warranty process for you if asking for the receipt is not appropriate.
  2. Why does MaxxStick require valid Proof of Purchase?
    • MaxxStick must positively identify that the Product falls within the applicable Limited Warranty period. We also need to verify that the Product was purchased from an authorized seller of MaxxStick Products.
    • Products purchased from non-authorized dealers are often used, counterfeit, re-boxed, defective or gray market goods. These units may also not be designed and packaged to work in your country and may not meet all legal and safety requirements. MaxxStick will not be able to honour a Limited Warranty on Products not purchased from an authorized dealer or ones that are outside the Limited Warranty period. If you have purchased the Product from an unauthorized dealer, all support and Limited Warranty issues should be directed to that specific dealer.
  3. Who is authorized to sell MaxxStick Products?
    • Currently the only authorized sellers of MaxxStick products are either directly from our website or our authorized Amazon listing under the MaxxStick brand name.
  4. How long is my Limited Warranty?
    • You are eligible for Limited Warranty support for the following periods of time commencing upon the date of retail purchase of your Product (“Warranty Period”):
Product Warranty Period

MaxxStick R3 Controller (excluding Joystick Module)  1-Year

All new products will have the Warranty Periods listed above, subject to applicable local law.

    • Limited Warranty. MaxxStick warrants the Product to be free from defects in materials and workmanship when used normally in accordance with the official documentation for the applicable Warranty Period from the date of retail purchase.
    • Exclusions and Limitations
      • This Limited Warranty does not cover software, non-MaxxStick branded products and accessories, problems with and/or damage to the Product caused by using accessories, parts, or components not made by MaxxStick, damage caused by service (including upgrades and expansions) performed by anyone who is not officially acting as an employee, representative or sub-contractor of MaxxStick, claims to arise from any unacceptable use or care of the Product, claims arising from external causes, 
      • Additionally it does not cover products with a serial number or date stamp that has been altered, obliterated or removed, Products for which MaxxStick will not receive payment, cosmetic damage, minor cosmetic abnormalities (including minor pixel abnormalities) and normal wear and tear, or operation of the Product outside MaxxStick’s recommended parameters.

Goods presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type rather than being repaired. Refurbished parts may be used to repair the goods.

Where the Product is an “end of life” Product model, MaxxStick may (at its sole option) exchange the Product with a functionally equivalent substitute model from MaxxStick’s current Product range. MaxxStick has the sole option to provide any other type of remedy in addition to or in substitution of the aforesaid remedies.
