About Laptop Batteries:
There are proprietary
parts in these laptop batteries that must be ripped from the cell to
which they are welded and then again welded to a new cell. There
is also usually a delicate smart foil that is always damaged.
rebuilding fly by's damage these parts in the removal process from the existing packs.
We have been contacted
by several guys running these laptop recell fly by’s wanting to
purchase cells through us.
These guys are
paying +/- .70 per cell for Chinese cells where we would be
paying +/- $3.20 per cell.
Some are buying
low end Sanyo or Saft. Others are buying LG, Toshiba or from a
hundred plus other low end battery cell manufacturers.
Some buy in bulk
from VAR’s who have left-over stock reduced in price for fast
These cells are old, many
times defunked models, that 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 two 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 were never properly stored.
We will NOT rebuild your
For batteries that we
consider worthy of rebuilding We will use ONLY the
very best cells available and usually greatly exceeding OEM standards.
We purchase ONLY
Panasonic, Sanyo, and Saft cells. We purchase only the higher
durability of those cells and then the highest amperage of the higher
The damage these
fly-by guys do to the fine art of recelling batteries is ugly. On
a regular basis we hear feedback that goes something like: “Yea, we had
some of our laptop or tool 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 quit fit the charger or tool properly. ”
The improper fit
is because the fly-by damaged the components in removing them from
the old insert and poor installation to the new insert.
These type vendors
place a bad name on a great alternative to new packs in other
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 them.
- 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.
