Hey all,
I have a Master series sled which I really dig. But it's powered off the original style Steadicam PAG batteries. I have 8 of them and 2 quad chargers but they don't hold much of a charge these days, even after running them thru the 'Revitalize' cycle.
Is it worth it to get them re-celled or should I just convert to AB or something? That means investing in batteries and a charger...
I already have the AB plate.
If I were to get them re-celled, where would I do so in SoCal?
Thanks.

You can use prepaid usps boxes to ship to him, very cost effective.
