Depending on the option you choose or available, you can take your phone to an authorized service repair center where the battery will be replaced or even have Meizu send someone to your home to replace it for you.

Meizu says the battery replacement plan is eligible for those who already have an existing protection plan, those whose warranty has expired, or those who just want their battery replaced even without having a warranty or protection plan in the first place.

Meizu has released a list of the devices that are eligible for the battery replacement plan. There are a lot but it doesn’t include all its products.

Meizu said the reason for creating the battery plan is because of those who are frequent users of FlymeOS’ multiple performance modes. From Meizu’s explanation, this drains the battery quickly and requires owners to have to recharge their battery multiple times, hence a rapid depletion of the battery’s charge cycles.

Even if you don’t fall into the above category, the fact that there is a battery replacement plan means you can hold on to your phone for longer before getting a new one.
