Broadcast Battery Rebuilding by The Professionals verses
Amateurs and Chain / Franchise Store Amateurs, especially with Lithium
Even though these come and go Rebuild / Recell /
Refill want to be's use Rathbone Battery Reference Library PDF white
sheets as a guideline, they still do not
understand the electronics and battery cells and are still amateurs
spinning facts to be misleading. No matter what you are told, quality
battery cells are also not available so Do NOT do a Rebuild, Recell, or
Refill! Explained in short on down this page. These amateurs trying to
recell or refill Anton Bauer, especially any Dionic Series, do not even
understand or use the 2702 with DDM and cannot confirm that the battery
is functioning properly. From a battery assembler, what these amateurs
are doing is very dangerous and these are very dangerous opportunists
risking you and your equipment! DANGER, DANGER, DO NOT DO A RECELL OR REFILL, EVER!
Battery Cell Leakage
Rathbone Lithium Ion High Capacity Broadcast Battery Material
Safety Data, Handling, and Chemical Specification Sheets for Rathbone
Lithium Broadcast Batteries (MSDS) Specifications PDF
The most important specification /
information sheet about batteries of any type from any manufacturer is your
MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet). Every battery user should read and
understand your MSDS not just for heavy metals but for the chemicals used by
any battery cell manufacturer in the manufacture of any battery cell.
Reference my PDF, battery cell leakage.
Why we refuse to rebuild
IDX Batteries Endura V Mount Batteries and any other generic V Mount Li-Ion
Battery. Why we no longer rebuild Anton Bauer Dionic 90 Batteries, Why
we no longer rebuild nickel cadmium batteries or nickel metal hydride
batteries or lithium ion batteries.

Nickel Cadmium battery cells
are environmentally unfriendly. Thanks to
International Environmental Concerns and the good laws of other countries,
our battery cell manufacturers have already started to phase nickel cadmium from
their manufacturing lines. Panasonic did so in 2005. Sanyo started their
depletion in 2008 Panasonic did so in 2005. Sanyo started their depletion in
2008 and that division was sold to FDK in 2009. You cannot use nickel cadmium battery cells and be green or
promote yourself as environmentally friendly. Rathbone Energy is an
Environmentally Conscious Company striving to stay Green since 1989. Having our
own line of lithium ion broadcast battery packs, Rathbone Energy has phased out
small cell nickel cadmium battery assembly and also battery rebuilding, no longer
supporting small cell new assembly or the rebuild of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) nickel cadmium
battery products in any market. Being the only Battery Assembler
Worldwide that supports rebuilding battery packs, we understand that this will
create a hardship on those already invested in nickel cadmium products but we offer our
Upgrade and great alternative of Lithium Ion.
Nickel Metal Hydride:
Panasonic stopped production of small cell nickel metal hydride cells in 2009
and in a restructure mode -
Sanyo Battery followed. I understand that Panasonic invested in Sanyo
Li-ION division and the rest, nickel cadmium and nickel metal hydride among
other chemicals, was purchased by FDK Japan in 2009. FDK has world wide
offices and manufacturing facilities in Taiwan. If I could find Panasonic or
Sanyo nickel metal hydride battery cells through Panasonic, Sanyo, or another
Valued Added distributor, (who by the way have $5,000.00 minimum orders), the
date codes on the cells would be too old and unacceptable for premium capacity
ratings. Chinese and South African/Chinese battery cells under any private label
name have an average 200 discharge cycles, immediate battery cell deterioration,
and cell leakage which will damage circuit boards and components. We do NOT do
LifePo4 - September 01, 2011: I
started work on this product in 2007, I will write a white page on why
we continue to elect not to assemble this chemical battery and why the
battery pack manufacturers we work with refuse to work with this
chemical, and what my colleagues in the EV field and I experience when
running extensive test on this chemical from existing manufacturers of
the cell. I wanted to introduce this pack in early 2008 but for the
expectations of myself and industry colleagues that actually
manufacturer battery packs and chargers, it is not practical or ready.
I have been approached by most if not all of the manufacturers of the
cell for a long time wanting me to consider it for Broadcast batteries
and other versions for EV research. I have to say no and tell them why
without giving out our experience and research information for free.
This has been very frustrating to me because I was looking forward to
using this cell.
Respect Lithium Ion
Since we no longer rebuild or do new
assembly with nickel cadmium battery cells below is
a contact for recycling all
your nickel cadmium, nickel metal hydride, and lithium ion battery
packs. We are NOT affiliated with any recycle contact. For those
with minimal quantities of nickel cadmium battery packs they can be
dropped off at any Home Depot, Lowes, Sears, etc.
