We’ve all been there. You buy a new electronic product and it comes with a warranty, whether it is one year, three years, or five or more years. It works great and you are happy. Then the day after the warranty ends, the product breaks and you are plumb out of luck. You now have to go buy a new one and repeat the whole cycle again. That’s just how the cookie crumbles. Nothing lasts forever… unless you buy something with a lifetime warranty.
If deciding between two products, it might make sense to buy the one with a lifetime warranty if the price and quality is similar. When the product eventually dies or breaks, you can send it back in for a repair, replacement, or maybe even a refund.
