Case Seal

How is my battery case sealed? 

This depends on the type of battery that you are purchasing or having rebuilt or recelled.  Without divulging 18 years of trade secrets:

  1. Example: Premium Rebuild

    1. Opening, Building, Installing, Closing, and Welding Your Logic ProPac, Logic Digital ProPac, or Hytron 100/120:

    2. 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 ten part process. Seal: # 8

    3. Your battery packs are cleaned.

    4. The Exterior Band which reads something like, "Anton Bauer" is removed WITHOUT CUTTING THE BAND.

    5. A precise and special type cut is performed to open the case thus allowing for a clean weld.

    6. Old insert is removed and secured for transporting to a battery recycle company.  Cost are incurred for disposal and freight of the old cores.

    7. Secure several internal stress points that were not OEM secured

    8. Replace particular wires with heavier AWG and color code correct wire to prevent potential breakage if not already broken

    9. New inserts are built and tested on sophisticated analyzers.

    10. Insert is installed into your existing wiring harness and tested.

    11. After passing initial test the open battery is placed on an Anton Bauer 2702 InterActive charger with DDM for testing.

    12. After passing those test A special welder and correct accessories are used to again seal the case securely and professionally.

    13. Then the Exterior Band that reads something like, "Anton Bauer", is again placed back around the battery case, usually looking better than when it arrived for recell.

    14. The battery pack looks great, performs great, and is then packed and shipped back to you.

    15. We receive your many complimentary letters or emails, which for us, is a great reward.

    This high tech plastic welding technique is so strong we have to reopen the cases just like a never before opened battery, and the cases can be recelled over and over without loss of battery dimensions.

  2. Rebuilding your dead Anton Bauer ProPac Standard:

    1. We clean, sandblast, and powder cost your old metal band, install your new insert, test the pack and screw the case back together.

    2. We also look for cracks in the case and reinforce those cracks with epoxy when appropriate.

  3. Rebuilding your dead Anton Bauer Hytron 50:

    1. This battery is very fragile with a high fail rate.

    2. Your battery packs are cleaned.

    3. The case is professionally opened.

    4. Old insert is removed and secured for transporting to a battery recycle company.  Cost are incurred for disposal and freight of the old cores.

    5. New inserts are built and tested on sophisticated analyzers.

    6. Insert is installed into your existing wiring harness and tested.

    7. After passing initial test the open battery is placed on an Anton Bauer 2702 InterActive charger with DDM for testing.

    8. After passing those test we seal the case securely and professionally.

    9. The faceplate with your name or logo and phone number is attached.

    10. The battery pack looks great, performs great, and is then packed and shipped back to you.

    11. We receive your many complimentary letters or emails, which for us, is a great reward.

    Your rebuilder should Never use a permanent bond adhesive all the way around the outside or inside of this case!

  4. Rebuilding your dead Anton Bauer TrimPac:

    1. Your battery packs are cleaned.

    2. The case is professionally opened. A precise and special type cut is performed to open the case thus allowing for a clean seal.

    3. Old insert is removed and secured for transporting to a battery recycle company.  Cost are incurred for disposal and freight of the old cores.

    4. New inserts are built and tested on sophisticated analyzers.

    5. Insert is installed into your existing wiring harness and tested.

    6. After passing initial test the open battery is placed on an Anton Bauer 2702 InterActive charger with DDM for testing.

    7. After passing those test we seal the case securely and professionally.

    8. The faceplate with your name or logo and phone number is attached.

    9. The battery pack looks great, performs great, and is then packed and shipped back to you.

    10. We receive your many complimentary letters or emails, which for us, is a great reward.

    Your rebuilder should Never use a permanent bond adhesive all the way around the outside or inside of this case!

  5. If your battery pack, like many survey and instrumentation packs,  is a screw together pack we will simply insert the screws and secure the case.

  6. If your pack is very small like a Survey Lietz BDC18 we will apply an industrial glue.

2. Example: Economy "Sack and Save" Procedure

  1. The Exterior Band which reads something like, "Anton Bauer" is removed WITHOUT CUTTING THE BAND.

  2. A band saw cut is performed to open the case thus allowing for a clean glue "Bonding".

    1. Bonding is used by amateur competitors and do it yourself catalog readers

    2. Bonding usually prevents the case from being rebuilt again

    3. These people usually chew up the wiring harness while cutting the case open.  We will not.

  3. Old insert is removed and secured for transporting to a battery recycle company.  Cost are incurred for disposal and freight of the old cores.

  4. New inserts are built with name brand cells and tested on sophisticated analyzers.

  5. Insert is installed into your existing wiring harness

  6. Test the individual Pin connectors for proper voltage
  7. Ship your newly recelled battery back to you

Digital Batteries with massive electronic components designed into the circuit that have NO purpose but to force a segregated marriage between their brand charger and their brand battery.

  • IMPORTANT:  It has been our experience with these particular batteries that after all the above checks are carefully finished, still, a large percentage of these digital batteries, estimated at >60%, do NOT pass the AB2707 with DDM Test's because they came in with internal circuit board damage that can only be discovered after a new insert is installed and we loose all the time consuming labor.  If the user had owned the OEM highest grade smart charger they would have been aware because there would be a digital reading advising of the final charge type that finished the battery charger.

  • Our Rathbone Energy Lithium Ion batteries are built differently:

    1. We have streamlined the internal circuitry of our batteries and they to have built in protection circuitry to ensure the highest degree of safety operation.  They are STILL Lithium Ion.   
    2. By streamlining our batteries circuits we remove unnecessary components that might be used to force someone's battery to only work with one brand charger.
    3. Unnecessary components that have nothing to do with the safety of the battery only increase the chance that the battery will fail prematurely because of unnecessary components being damaged when a battery is jolted or dropped.
