Amateur Work Examples

Rathbone Energy Examples of Amateur Battery Rebuilding Work

You get what you pay for.

All of these companies claim years of experience.

Recell of Alexander battery by amateur Recell of brick by amateur company Recell of another brick by amateur company The technician for this known company that built these inserts must have been on drugs.  Chinese cells, no paper tubes, no washers, actually soldered the weld tabs together creating additional voltage drops that will effect the readings of any quality smart charger or analyzer.  You would think they bought one of those, "Make a 6 figure income from home", do it yourself books.

 Recell of brick by a well know amateur battery company Recell of brick by a well know amateur battery company Franchise Amateur: The case is taped together with clear packing tape, Chinese cells, no paper tubes, no insulator washers, the external band is cut, butchered wiring harness, and more.

 Recell of brick by a well know amateur battery company Recell of brick by a well know amateur battery company Another from your well known franchised corner retail store amateur. The case is taped together, has adhesive caulk inside the case rendering the case useless for repeat recells, Chinese cells, no paper tubes, the external band is cut, no insulator washers, butchered wiring harness, and more.

Recell of a well know aftermarket brick by a brick by a well know amateur battery company A very well known and respected aftermarket company battery pack.  PVC Shrink and No tubes, split PVC and split solder tab shrink equal a recipe for disaster.

 Recell of a brick by a well know amateur battery companyRecell of a a brick by a well know amateur battery company Recell of a brick by a well know amateur battery company Bait and Switch.  These people were and may still be in the very Southern tip of the country. Unfortunately for us we did a little business with them in 1994, toxic.  In this recent picture of a battery that came in here for a rebuild we discovered the following.  The tubes were removed from the OEM cells for recycle use but this vendors practice is to leave the Sanyo label and part number on the tubes even though they are using Chinese cells which leak or low grade brand name cells which have probably been on their shelf for years. Plus, they cut the band which should not be cut, and they cut the case in the wrong position.

 Recell of a brick by a well know amateur battery company Recell of a brick by a well know amateur battery company A New England vendor.  the case is cut leaving a gap, the case is only taped together, brand name "High Capacity" low end cells, no paper tubes, no insulator washers,  and more. Plus, they cut the band which should not be cut, and they cut the case in the wrong position.

More to come.  Now for intermission.

The guys who recelled this Arri unit were stoned. MAKE A 6 FIGURE INCOME FROM HOME WITH MY NEW "HOW TO REBUILD YURE BATTERIES AT HOME" book.  No insulator washers, no paper tubes, a voltage drop at every solder joint, simply held together with pieces of tape. No, this one is not on drugs.  This one, with XX years of experience bought one of those, "Make a 6 figure income from home", do it yourself books, and now he are a electronic technician with NO battery experience.  Yes, a perfect example of, "Those who cannot do write books" and the dummy's who buy them. 

Fixing verses a Pro rate Warranty: I thought "Fixen" was a Southern Term but apparently not.  When it comes to a warranty you should look for Warranty like with the Rathbone Energy New Lithium Ion V Mount and Gold Mount battery packs or Rathbone Energy Premium Rebuild Battery Pro Rate warranties.  A warranty that will "fix" is fixen to get you!

Amateur businnes recelling instead of a good rebuild from Rathbone Energy    Amateur businnes recelling instead of a good rebuild from Rathbone Energy Amateur businnes recelling instead of a good rebuild from Rathbone Energy These amateur "recell" business cases show where they cut the wiring harness, chewed up the wiring harness, "patched" the wiring harness and did that without color coding the harnesses, and use torn pieces of cork and cardboard as insulators where they broke and or cut the wiring harness or where bare cell was exposed.  Poop in a Bag, I mean brick.

Refill Do Not

Broadcast Battery Rebuilding by The Professionals verses Amateurs and Chain / Franchise Store Amateurs, especially with Lithium Ion

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.

Our Position on Nickel Cadmium Batteries and Nickel Metal Hydride Batteries and Why We Phased Them Out PDF

You cannot be going Green or have a true carbon footprint statement and still be using Nickel Cadmium Battery Cells.

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 Chinese cells.

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.

Environmental Statement

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.

Our Rathbone facility: There are no fancy buildings or flatulent egos to inflate at Rathbone Energy.  This helps keep our cost down while supplying you the best battery cell inserts.   We keep overhead to a minimum and have modest salaries allowing you the best value on the highest quality cells.  

The staff is small in number but big in heart. 

We talk to people who have purchased cheap or even nonconforming product as a "real deal" or bargain who have then discovered that there is no such thing as a "Free" lunch.  But, you can also overpay for your product. We have heard it said that an educated buyer is good for the company, so we provide the battery value worksheet. 

To help with your purchasing decision, our cell and product specification sheets have been designed in great detail, nothing vague or generalized, backed up  with comparative manufacturers specification sheets.  Please advise us if you find an area where we are not competitive on same product so we may verify, make adjustments and gain your business!  Note: We have no problem with really low price battery competition.  They know their stuff, and so do we.

To guarantee you really receive what you have paid for, your purchase order and our invoice and packing slip will always show exact detail of your specified battery cell to assure no lesser quality than what you have purchased.

If on an outside chance you have found a battery assembler or a battery pack rebuilder that offers everything we do in (Not going to happen): cell selection, building your battery pack, efforts in safety, detailed black and white description sheets backed up by detailed manufacturers battery cell specification sheets, packing slips, and invoices, you have just found the web site and reason why.  rathboneenergy.com
