Rathbone Energy Rebuild Service and Upgrade for Your
Dead Anton Bauer Batteries , Logic Digital ProPac's, Yes we can!
Why you should choose Rathbone Energy a true
and professional battery assembler to
service your valuable Anton Bauer Batteries and other equipment is in the
details. But, have you considered
Upgrading to a New
Rathbone Broadcast Lithium Battery Pack?
For your reference, below
are the details of how Rathbone did professionally rebuild your Anton Bauer
Battery product before we decided that rebuilding a Digital ProPac Series
nickel cadmium battery is now an outdated idea and with no quality nickel
cadmium battery cells available for pack assembly plus the fact that we
cannot promote an environmentally footprint if we supply them, rebuilding
them with available options is an injustice to the end user and the world.
So we went forward with our own replacement line of Rathbone broadcast
lithium ion batteries.
Rathbone Energy is a
Battery Assembler and Rathbone Broadcast lithium ion V
mount and Gold mount battery packs and chargers are equal to or exceed
Anton Bauer Batteries, Dionic Batteries, IDX Endura Batteries V Mount, Sony V
Mount, and VariZoom Lithium Ion Battery Packs and are a Lithium Ion
The "BEST AVAILABLE" Battery Cell:
Nickel Cadmium: 500 Discharge Cycles, But No Longer
Available, Not Environmentally Friendly.
Nickel Metal Hydride: 500 Discharge Cycles, But No Longer
battery cells are really cheap, like .70 per cell x 12 cells. No
matter what propaganda you read by someone pretending to be a client of a
fly by who says they have bought recelled Digital ProPac from their fly by buddy
using a Chinese battery cell, you should consider who actually wrote the
praise and remember, the Chinese cells work for a little while and always
with a consistently degrading performance, around 200 degrading discharge
cycles, and leakage. The only person who would not notice the
difference is an amateur photographer or amateur battery insert installer.
We are a real battery assembler, we know.

Engineering Spec examples verses marketing:
A 14.4V 65WH battery is: 1.25V x 12 cells = 15.0V x 4.0AH =
This is the same battery as: 1.2V x 12 cells = 14.4V x 4.0AH
