About Scorpion Battery
Scorpion Battery is dedicated to the manufacturing and distribution of quality aftermarket batteries to the entire Powersports industry. Founded by Powersports enthusiasts, Scorpion batteries are the ones we choose for use in our own Motorcycles, ATVs, Scooters and Snowmobiles.
Following are a few basic principles that guide Scorpion Battery in our daily pursuit of excellence.
Quality Does Matter
There are currently many different companies making and selling Powersports batteries in the USA today. While most are happy to just make the sale, when it comes to quality and matching the OEM requirements, they are often left wanting. Here is an example: A few years before the founding of Scorpion Battery, it was overheard in a teleconference with a large battery manufacturer having quality control issues that “No one wakes up in the morning saying that today 'I will make junk batteries'”. While this statement is intuitively correct, often manufacturers choose to take shortcuts that end up sacrificing quality in the name of the bottom line. Scorpion Battery was founded on the principle that quality IS the bottom line, and it is a principle that we strive hard to achieve every day.
Batteries Are Made From Lead, Not Gold
Scorpion Battery realizes that the price of batteries has taken a toll on the average consumer's pocketbook. As the price of raw lead has dramatically risen over the past few years, manufacturers have been increasing their price structure to reflect this. Scorpion has chosen a different path. We think there is another route and we now offer what we believe is the absolute best cost vs. quality structure on the planet. Sure, if you shop hard, you may find batteries that are less costly than Scorpion, but are you really giving your Powersports toy the power that it needs? Are you receiving the best customer service on the planet? At Scorpion we believe that a happy customer is a repeat customer. Repeat customers and positive word of mouth are what carries the day.
If You Are Going to Build Something, Stand Behind It
When you purchase a Scorpion battery, you purchase a factory fresh battery. It is not uncommon amongst our competitors to sell batteries that are up to 12 months old, but our size and tight inventory structure allows us to be sure that you receive only the freshest battery possible. Other manufacturers offer what we call an 'ostrich warranty', where they expect their dealers to pick up warranties in return for a 2% deduction from their bill. This has created a twofold problem. First, it insulates the manufacturer from any knowledge of recurring problems with their batteries. After all, why would a dealer bother reporting any failures, if there is no recourse to have that failure covered under warranty? Second, this leaves the average dealer/distributor having to cover the cost of the failure, and inevitably leads to higher prices for the end consumer. Kind of like talking to the hand, because the face does not care.
Scorpion Battery tackles this issue head on. We simply stand behind our stuff. Scorpion Batteries come with a 12 month, no-hassle warranty, which means that if the battery fails in the first 12 months due to manufacturing fault, we replace it at our expense (You can view our full warranty procedure on our policies and procedures page). This way, no matter where you purchase your Scorpion battery, we know about any issues. It's that simple. With this real warranty we can know when there is a problem so we can fix it, and we foot the bill for our error. Sounds fair, doesn't it?
You bought your Motorcycle, ATV, Scooter or Sled to relax, have fun, and leave your worries at the door. Scorpion understands. Go play!
