There are parts in
these IDX Endura Broadcast Batteries and other V Mount batteries
that must be ripped from the cell to which they are welded and then
again welded to a new cell. Most amateurs use solder and a very few
have a very cheap welder.
rebuilding fly by's damage these parts in the removal process from
the existing packs.
The shell is fish
paper thin plastic at or less than 1/8" in thickness and too thin
The shell is always
severely damaged when opening these fish paper thin cases and after
re-close of the case the cosmetics of the case are not less than
Also because the
spring tension metal contacts are bent in the opening process they
do not properly fit the charger or camera adaptor.
We have been
contacted by several guys running these Battery Recelling /
Rebuilding / Refill fly by’s or franchises wanting to purchase cells
These guys make
a lot of money! They are paying +/- .70 per cell for Chinese
cells, under many names, used in the inserts built for them
where we would be paying +/- $6.20 per cell for high end cells
from the best manufacturers.
Some buy in
bulk from VAR’s who have left-over stock reduced in price for
fast movement. Cells that are old, many times defunct models,
and have been sitting on the shelf for long periods, (even
years) of time.
engineering specification sheets show a possible battery cell
shelf life of up to ten years IF the cells are properly stored.
even though you will get performance out of a properly stored
two year old cell, you will not get peak or optimum
performance. And most battery packs are never properly stored.
March 2009: I
am aware of a station right now that has 35 dead Dionic 90
batteries that new, were shelved, never taken from the box, and
according to the Chief Engineer, are now dead. He just replaced
them with 28 Rathbone Lithium Ion Batteries.
We will NOT rebuild
your IDX Endura or other V Mount battery.
We will use ONLY
the very best cells available and usually greatly exceeding OEM
standards in our Rathbone Energy Broadcast Battery Packs.
We purchase ONLY LG
Chem, Panasonic, and Sanyo Li-ION cells. We purchase only the
higher durability of those cells and then the highest amperage of
the higher durability.
The damage these
fly-by guys do to the fine art of rebuilding / recelling batteries
is ugly. On a regular basis we hear feedback that goes something
like: “Yea, we had some of our batteries rebuilt / recelled once,
real cheap, and after that they were C _ _ p. We won’t do that
again. The life cycles only lasted a short time, the performance
per cycle was reduced, and the battery never quite fit the charger
or equipment properly. ”
fit is because the fly-by damaged the components in removing
them from the old insert and poor installation to the new
These type vendors
place a bad name on a great alternative to new packs in other
Broadcast Batteries specifications meet and exceed OEM
specifications and the warranty. In this industry you really do get
what you pay for.
Lately we have
noticed some cheaper off the shelf OEM alternative batteries that
are made in China with Chinese cells. We would never recommend
Note: When you buy
new laptops buy ALL of your additional OEM laptop batteries at the
time of purchase. Stay away from aftermarket or recell of laptop
batteries for all the same reasons and more not listed.
Stay away from
Power Tool battery rebuilds for the same reasons.

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
