We will quote to build your volume of rechargeable lithium ion batteries for broadcast or any other market.  We will quote only Panasonic, Saft, and Sanyo's BEST cell options.  No cells used at Rathbone Energy are ever labeled as Name Brand.  We strongly practice and encourage "Buy American, Manufactured in the United States".  Our employees are not slave labor.  They are well trained American mountain craftsmen / women who live modestly at or close to what the US calls our poverty level. 

Because recelling rechargeable batteries is a specialty at we see all the good and all the bad in product design and workmanship.  One event we occasionally see in nickel cadmium, nickel metal hydride, and lithium ion battery assemblies is corrosion on the back of the circuit boards.  Sometimes all we need to do is remove the corrosion and the battery will work fine.  By corrosion I mean corrosion from humidity, exposure, and if using third world or “name brand” low end cells, from those battery cells.  If you ever have corrosion between the wrong two points on the back of the circuit board of a lithium ion battery you will have a serious problem.


For example, if in simply welding the weld tab onto a small 4/5Au size lithium ion cell you used too much power, pressure, time length of the weld, or a combination you could easily burn through the battery cell canister.  If this happens you will see a flame reach out up to 5 or 6 feet from that one small cell.  Then, of course, you will have a domino effect.  Manufacturers of lithium ion battery cell packs have done well in keeping these horror stories under the rug.  At you can count on one thing for sure.  If a user has a problem with a battery pack out of warranty from any manufacturer they call us or visit with us during a trade show and they do tell their horror stories.
