Services FAQ

Q. What is your re-manufacturing process?

A. We use state of the art computerized testing software along with our own custom made hardware to test hundreds of cells individually. They are given a score based on their Capacity x Resistance and C rating. Cells that score within an except-able range of each other are placed in the same pack. This insures that the cells are properly balanced. We also clean all corrosion from the Bus-Bars (copper tabs that connect all the cells together) using a chemical and mechanical process. We then place a protective paste on the Bus-Bars to insure the electrical integrity of the circuit. this process takes about 20 hours per Battery.

Q. What does Balanced mean?

A. First off, balanced does NOT mean that all of the cells have the same voltage (IE.. charging those with low voltage). The cells in a healthy pack will always vary slightly within an except-able range. Balanced means starting with hundreds of cells and finding matching packs of 38 that score similarly on a Capacity x Resistance x C rating test.
