Orion Buyback & Replacement Program

Program Information

Our electronics manufacturer has identified an issue with the battery system integrated into the v1 Orion’s that poses a potential hazard. Because we refuse to allow products that do not meet our quality standards to remain in use, we have decided to ask all purchasers of the Dynatec Orion to deactivate or return their devices immediately. We will be offering you the option of an exchange for a v2 Orion or a refund. Your safety is our number one priority and we ask for your help in removing these devices from use.


How the process works:

Choose from one of two disposal options

  • Return: Let us know below that you plan to return the device to us by requesting a prepaid shipping label.
  • Deactivate: If it’s not feasible or convenient to return, you can deactivate your device by destroying the USB charging port and providing verification of deactivation.

     Deactivate with paint: 

  1. Drop a few dabs of paint into the USB port. Good paints to use would be nail polish, model paint, spray paint or white out. Please use a visible color other than black to allow for easy verification.
  2. Hand write your order number and email address on a piece of paper.
  3. Take a picture showing the destroyed USB port next to your handwritten order number and email address.
  4. Please wait until you get a confirmation from us before disposing of your destroyed unit. We may need a different angle or better quality picture to assure destruction.

Choose how we can make it up to you:

  • We can send you a new v2 Orion
  • We can send you a refund for your Orion order total


Please choose which method you would like to proceed with below:
