If for any reason you are unable to return the Equipment to us, including but not limited to the Equipment being lost or stolen during the Rental Period, then you should contact us immediately, so that you do not incur additional late charges. If the equipment is returned to us after we have charged the loss penalty, we will immediately offset the charge with the fee corresponding to the number of days your device is considered overdue.

In the event that all Equipment is lost or damaged, the total charge payable is $200. Without extra equipment (power bank and car charger), the total charge is $175.
