In addition, production codes on the cards are printed by PINACO and the same as the production codes on storage batteries, and their production codes and selling dates (written by the selling places) are without signs of being erased or edited.

- If having valid warranty cards: The times for warranty are calculated from the selling dates written by the selling places on the warranty cards plus the warranty times regulated above.
- If having no warranty cards or vice versa but not valid: The times for warranty are calculated from the production dates, i.e. the production codes printed on storage batteries plus the warranty times regulated above.
* For the types of storage batteries enclosed with warranty stamps:

Ways to calculate the warranty times for newly changed storage batteries: The warranty times for the newly changed storage batteries are the remaining periods of warranty time of the previous storage batteries (changed storage batteries) are calculated as follows:
* For the types of storage batteries enclosed with warranty cards: 
- If the previous storage batteries have valid warranty cards: The warranty times for the newly changed storage batteries are calculated from the previous storage batteries’ buying dates. On the warranty cards of the newly changed storage batteries, the buying dates are written as the ones of the previous storage batteries. 
- If the previous storage batteries have no warranty cards or vice versa but not valid: The warranty times for the newly changed storage batteries are calculated from the production dates of the previous storage batteries. On the warranty cards of the newly changed storage batteries, the buying dates are written as the production dates of the previous storage batteries.
