AB ProPac 14 Logic Series

With Volt meter i get no readings from the batteries.
With Volt meter i get a reading from a charger, which therefore i think works ok.
Is it possible both of them died at the same time? Is there a way for me to check this. Truth be told they are OLD batteries, from September 91 to be precise, so I wouldnt be surprised if they just died, but am wondering if they would both die at the same time...
I have another 2 batteries, TrimPac, that use a different charger - Panasonic Lifesaver SuperCam charger. The batteries are 40w as apposed to 60w and are trim looking (slim I should say) with LCD. They are working great... Should I try the two above mentioned on the Panasonic charger? Somehow I fear doing this, as it may ruin my Panasonic charger leaving me with no charger for the two slim batteries...
if you have any idea on what i should do, please let me know.
Also, if you think I should try and re-cell the batteries, as apposed to buying new once? Try that option? Is there a place you can recommend - I am in Australia, QLD, Brisbane...
Thanking you in advance!

Well, I must say that you have gotten your moneys worth with those ProPac 14 batteries. 15 years!!!!!! I think that may be a record. You can try putting the ProPac 14's on the Supercam charger, it can't hurt. I would strongly suggest you retire the LSQ4 charger that you were using. We discontinued that unit in 1988. While it was a good charger for the times, the InterActive chargers are much smarter and will give your batteries a better charge. One thing though, there is no way I can guarantee you will get another 15 years from your batteries!!!!! This alone should attest to you remaining a long time Anton/Bauer customer.
You can contact the Anton/Bauer office in Singapore. Martin Soh would be happy to help you, as he covers the Pac Rim also. You can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anton/Bauer will always be around and here for you.

thank you very much for your post! I had no idea I was in the record reaching vancinities, as they never missed the beat till now. I am going to try them on the Supercam charger then, see what comes out of that... my hopess aren't high (which isn't a bad thing - as you said I got heaps out of them already) and will then definitely turn toward contacting Anton/Bauer in Singpore.
Thank you for the great post!
