Rathbone has streamlined the
internal operation and performance circuitry of these batteries
and they have built in protection circuitry to
ensure the highest degree of safety operation available
against over-discharge, over-charge and over-current..
PTC Protection: After the Rathbone battery pack
purposely cuts off the load to protect the battery the Rathbone
battery pack will automatically restore to a useable condition
in just a few minutes.
Thermal Protection: If the Rathbone battery were
to become too hot the battery will automatically shut down to
protect the battery pack. When the Rathbone battery pack
temperature returns to a temperature within the usage parameters
of the battery specification sheet the Rathbone battery pack
will re-store to a working status automatically.
IC Over Discharge Protection: If the Rathbone
battery pack is placed in an over discharge situation the IC
Protection Circuit will activate and shut down the battery power
to protect the Rathbone battery pack. To restore the Rathbone
battery pack to an operating condition simply charge the
Rathbone battery pack and the IC circuit will automatically
Short circuit: built-in resumable

Rathbone is a battery assembler since 1989, are competent, and
we use proper weld tabs, insulators, and spacers.
By streamlining these batteries and
components Rathbone removes
unnecessary and fragile and very unnecessary components that might be used to force someone's
battery to only work with one company brand charger.
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.
Unless there is a melt down or the user knows and understands
how to use the top of the line model charger, which still has gaps, the end user never knows the
difference, thinks the cells are bad and buys a new pack.
It also reminds me of a built in program on a thermostat for an
air conditioner filter or a broadcast battery product that takes an
average and then reads, "Service", whether the product needs
service or not.
Light Grey Case to reduce heat absorption from the sun
Flat packing of cells over nesting of cells to assist in
heat reduction. Example: ProPac, Hytron and Dionic 90 have
a nested configuration of battery cells.
Detailed Battery Specification Sheet and
MSDS Sheet, in Black and White backing up what we tell you is
inside the battery packs is what we
are selling you. Know your MSDS sheet.
Rathbone could build alternative battery
packs with Chinese / South African battery cells for 75% less but we have
refused to do Chinese or "Name Brand" battery cells.
However, for the non-professional
wanting cheap batteries with cheap performance, for at least
half the price, we are thinking on it, No. If we did, we
tell you they are poop in a bag before you give us your money.

Rathbone Broadcast Batteries, LLC., is a battery assembler, (A factory),
not a box house or widget buyer storing bulk purchase battery packs for
very long periods of time. Ron L. Rathbone is a foremost world wide
behavior specialist working with the DOD, DOE, and the Automotive
industry in new battery technologies. And our Rathbone Broadcast
Lithium Ion Battery Packs serve as a Great alternative to those battery
packs manufactured for years Off ShoreFor companies like
Anton Bauer Batteries, IDX Batteries, Red One Batteries, Sony Batteries,
or Generic batteries like VariZoom Batteries, Switt Batteries and a host
of other generic Chinese batteries.
You may have one or two broadcast battery
companies that ship in off shore battery inserts with circuit board
attached and the case shipped in as well and the battery placed into the
case here which would make them a value added distributor at best. But
in reality they really only have a weak tech repair center. Rathbone
called all other battery assemblers and distributors to the table in
1993 by developing the FIRST and ONLY FULL DISCLOSURE WEB SITE,
educating the end users and giving extreme detail on battery pack
design. Rathbone is the only broadcast battery supplier that is an
actual battery assembler. No broadcast battery supplier or so
called manufacturer actually assembles Li-ON cells into packs themselves
or within the USA. With proper motivation I could supply contact
information and links to their Chinese suppliers.
Whether a Professional, Freelance, or
Network buyer, once you or they understand the difference between
Rathbone Premium High Capacity Lithium Ion Broadcast Batteries,
overpriced segregated batteries with what we consider bad design and
shelved in a box house or other low end batteries that have been on the
shelf in a box house for a very long period and more than likely not in
a climate controlled storage environment, you or they will and do choose
Rathbone. A Professional
wants a better value but also understands that when your livelihood
depends on your batteries you don't settle for second best or worse in
product quality, battery knowledge, or by use of low grade brand name
cells and short cuts or Chinese cells and short cuts. A professional is
also not waived by overpriced alternatives for fear of not being popular
or accepted as part of a Kiss A _ _ crowd.

As with our
assembly lines and now retired rebuilding lines, only fresh

build up a bulk of battery packs to be left sitting on
shelves for undetermined periods of time.

Why we refuse to rebuild
IDX Batteries Endura V Mount Broadcast Batteries and any other generic V Mount Li-Ion
Broadcast Batteries, Why we no longer rebuild Anton Bauer Batteries Dionic 90 Batteries, Why
we no longer rebuild nickel cadmium or nickel metal hydride batteries.
Even though these come and go Battery Rebuild /
Battery Recell /
Battery 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 Battery Rebuild,
Battery Recell, or
Battery 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
BATTERY RECELL OR BATTERY REFILL, EVER!
You cannot be going Green or have a true carbon footprint
statement and still be using Nickel Cadmium
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.
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.
