 Newer Logic ProPac witout the glass fuse Dead Anton Bauer Propac Logic Series Battery in-house for a Recell.Rathbone Energy Rebuilding and Upgrade of Dead Anton Bauer Batteries Logic Non-Digital ProPac's.

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Anton Bauer Battery product before we decided that rebuilding a Logic ProPac Series nickel cadmium battery is now an outdated idea and with no quality nickel cadmium battery cells available for pack assembly plus the fact that we cannot promote an environmentally footprint if we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.

Digital Battery Problems and Resolution (Please read before going any further)  Then see how it should be done while the page is still up and you have a reference from a professional battery pack assembler.

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 Battery Value. 

 

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 Available

Our Lithium Ion Choice: 500 Discharge Cycles

Our Position on Nickel Cadmium Batteries and Why We Phased Them Out PDF  You cannot be going Green and still be using Nickel Cadmium Battery Cells.

Yes Chinese 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 Logic 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.

RATHBONE REBUILD DETAILS FOR REFERENCE: First the picture story, followed by a detailed description and "no gimmick" pricing in black and white for our premium service.  Some pictures may be enlarged with a click for a cleaner picture.  Hoover 3 seconds to read picture text information.

 

Premium Service

Dead sealed logic brick after being opened and before removing the dead insert.   The inside of a dead Logic Propac  backplate.  We reinforce the fuse tabs, coat them with glue, and replace the 24awg ground wire with a 20awg wire.  OPENING THE CASE: Original Logic ProPac with Glass Fuse.  No amateur opening your case improperly and also butchering your wiring harness then twisting the wires back together.  No band saws and bonding - glue.  Several important but none listed workmanship services are done at this point in our premium service.

 

 Panasonic P500DR insert shown in the manufacturers PVC shrink for display purposes.

BATTERY INSERT COMPONENTS, CELLS, AND PROFESSIONAL PACKAGING OF OUR PREMIUM SERVICE: The same insert is used in Logic Digital, Original Non-Digital Logic ProPac and Newer Non-Digital Logic ProPac.  Digital=LCD Screen; Non-Digital=No LCD screen.  No amateur work here either.  We specify the exact cells used in black and white on the description and invoice.

 

  Anton Bauer Logic or Digital Propac or Hytron 100/120 after being resealed with a high-tech welder.  Notice the smooth flat finish of the welder bead.   WELD SEAM ON A PREMIUM REBUILD: Original Logic ProPac Digital or Non-Digital after our Professional Welding Seam securing the case and allowing it to be rebuilt over and over.  Amateur's and fly by night companies use "Bonding" which is glue and tape that will break and also ruins the case.

 

EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: FINAL TEST USED ON OUR PREMIUM REBUILDS: Our professional procedure and price also requires that All Logic ProPac Digital, Non-Digital, and Hytron 100, Hytron 120, and Hytron 140 recells are tested on Anton Bauer 2702's w/DDM before adding enclosure.  We stand alone in professional quality rebuilding.  As shown below, PAG ACS analyzers supply excellent charge and maintenance to Your units and do not require communication with the internal temperature sensors of AB batteries.  Click to enlarge.

PAG Quasar 2X Snap On Compatible, with Power Supply, and two BP90 ports for a variety of adaptors. PAG Pulsar 4X Snap On Compatible, with 4 BP90 ports on front for a variety of adaptors. PAG Freelancer Camera Mounted Hot Swap Power Supply, Charger, and Battery Mount that mounts on your camera and will accept Anton Bauuer batteries by using an adaptor. PAG V Mount Adaptor for a variety of V Mount batteries. Cadex 7400ER Unlike smart chargers, Cadex and PAG analyzers do NOT require any digital circuitry to analyze and properly charger your batteries.

If your Anton Bauer Interactive chargers no longer recognize particular Anton Bauer Logic or Hytron series batteries the battery inserts may still be good and there is a cost saving resolution.  Call for details.

We allow no interruptions while Ben and others diligently working on your Dionic 90 Rebuilds. One of our weld strations using the correct type welders which help qualify our certification to weld lithium ion battery packs. Four our safety and yours, expedient turn around, and quality work, sales staff are NOT allowed to interrupt technicians in assembly.

Once a Professional client understands the difference between our Premium Rebuild and competitor alternative recell/refills below they completely drop interest in the Economy option. 

A professional understands that when your livelihood depends on your batteries you don't settle for second best or worse in knowledge, product quality, or by use of consumer grade cells and short cuts,.  However, we can spend your money as well as the amateur but WE WILL TELL YOU UP FRONT, IN BLACK AND WHITE, what you are really getting for your dollar.

  • When shopping remember real specifications: (Click this line to expand)

    • 150WH, 500-700 CD.

    • Engineering spec: 1.25V x 12 cells = 15.0V x 10AH = 150WH

    • Engineering Spec examples verses marketing:

    • A 14.4V 65WH battery is: 1.25V x 12 cells = 15.0V x 4.0AH = 65WH

    • This is the same battery as: 1.2V x 12 cells = 14.4V x 4.0AH = 60WH

    • A 14.4V 75WH battery is: 1.25V x 12 cells = 15.0V x 5.0AH = 75WH

    • This is the same battery as: 1.2V x 12 cells = 14.4V x 5.0AH = 72W

    • We did not create this confusion.  But we give our best effort to keep you in the circle with up to date and accurate information, formulas and tools for your decision making process.

We Do NOT use Chinese, third world, Toshiba, Energizer Consumer grade or brand name low end "economical" cells in our Premium packages.  We are using the very best nickel metal hydride battery cells available, (exceeding industry standards) and High-Tech Plastic Welders.

Order Procedure, Opening, Building, Installing, Closing, and Welding:

If you are rough on your battery packs this new plastic welding technique is for you.  At Rathbone Energy our professional opening, closing, and welding technique is a multipart process.
