What are Unboxed Products? 🤌
Unboxed Products are like-new products with just the box seal opened. These products are usually in like-new or mint condition 🌟 (mostly as good as new). These products used for less than 7 - 30 Days (Depending on product grade). As they are not used, so they still hold a valid brand warranty with them for a period of 8-12 Months (Why Less Warranty? Because some time is spent by these products in transit, storage or restocking).
Furthermore, These products are only sourced from brand-authorised retailers thus they are fully covered under warranty by the brand's service policy. Our major vendors are - Appario Retail, Cloudtail India, CORSECA, SuperCommNet, WSRetail etc. You can cross-check their names in the brand's authorized online retailer list to be double sure.
Where do Unboxed Products come from? 🧐
Most of our inventory comes via e-commerce returns which are basically products returned by the end-consumer within the respective website's return period (generally 7 Days) due to various reasons such as didn't like the product, no longer needed, price drop, incompatible with their use case etc. Other ways of sourcing include Brand/Store Liquidations of Overstock & Sample Inventory or carrier liquidation of lost or damaged outer box units.
Are Unboxed Products Refurbished or Used? Nah!! 🙅♂️
Now comes the million-dollar question, are unboxed products refurbished? The answer to this is a pretty straight, No.
Refurbished Products are those products which were previously used by a particular user for a considerable period generally 1-2 years and then were repaired to get them restored in a working or re-sellable condition. Refurbished Devices because of getting used for a long time, are often not covered under brand warranty.
In stark comparison, Unboxed products are never opened or repaired. The product's internal manufacturing seal is intact in all Unboxed Devices & because of being used for very less periods, are covered under brand warranty. As they are all original so they don't have any aftermarket parts or accessories, so you can rest assured about their performance & functionality. Unboxed Products get returned within the e-commerce return policy (usually 7 Days) which is very less to consider them as used (as compared to the average gadgets usage lifetime of 2 Years) or affect their pristine condition.
What is the condition of Unboxed Products? 🔍
Unboxed Products are usually in mint/like-new condition and have few or no scratches (You can think of their condition to be similar to a device that you bought 4-5 days back, which is near pristine only).

LOTS OF POUNDS LIGHTER.
An unboxed device represents 80 kgs of our collective carbon footprint. Manufacturing a new smartphone produces about 86 kgs of CO2e. Unboxed Products? Just 6 kgs. Lose the weight: no extra effort, just extra savings.
Insight: 80 Kg is equal to the emission created by driving a car for 800 km.
"HOT TUB TIME" MACHINE
Some might say that’s what an Unboxed Device is. A new phone uses up about 73 hot tubs worth of water. Buy renewed and you’ll save 60 hot tubs worth. And through this mental gymnastics you, a totally reasonable person, could maybe justify 25 hot tub parties. Right?
KEEP METAL ALIVE!
Electronic devices are hardcore metal. We mean literally loaded with heavy metals. 309 kgs of raw materials need to be dug up to produce a single gadget. Keep metal alive…by keeping it in circulation. Buy unboxed electronics that Slay(er).
LET GO OF TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS
What do you get when you buy a new phone? 199 grams of electronic waste. E-waste is toxic. Like, lead and mercury in your water are toxic. Let that fish go, and choose renewed. All the flash minus the trash (and the toxic environment that comes with that).
