Hello Everyone,

Thank all those great people who came by our booth at NAB2007. Thank you for your questions and interest in the rebuilding of your packs. This show allows us to show you the actual insides of these battery packs.

This year we introduced our new line of Lithium Ion battery packs ranging from 63WH to 160WH in V-mount and Gold Mount styles.

Check them out on our web site and please call to speak with your sales rep today.

We are not Li-ON fans but that have taken a significant percentage of the market place so we must join that band wagon.

Today, on our web site, we started a poll, a work in progress, asking questions of our client base about different topics from your opinions of NAB2007 and the cost to visit or have a booth at the show and other important topics such as lithium ion batteries.

As usual we will first do the research, gather the facts, place them on our web site for reference, and the make the presentation. One thing we will be confirming is the FAA regulations on Li-ON aboard airliners. According to information we have been given, You should be aware that at this moment you are allowed to board two Li-ON batteries up to 95WH each, NO MORE! If in your bagged luggage you pack more than the volume of Lithium Ion allowed, and your are asked if you are shipping anything hazardous and you say No, and then your bags are inspected, that you will face charges and penalities including a $250,000.00 fine. We are doing a more through search on charges and penalties this week to confirm this information and advise you, our client base of th facts.

But, please see our new line of Lithium Ion. Just use common sense, ask an authourity if in question, and be SAFE!

Sincerely,

Ron L. Rathbone :)

Ron,
I spoke with you about your Inik lithium ion batteries about three weeks ago. I was in a jam because the Dionics that I sent you to recell could not be done for at least 6 weeks. I needed batteries right away and tried to purchase 3 Inik batteries and a charger. You told me the vendor was "lazy" and may not have batteries made up. You said you would contact me the next day. I never heard from you and had to purchase batteries elsewhere.
Have you resolved your problems with this vendor?

Hello Colin,

I cannot believe that I actually told you the vendor was lazy, even in jest.

We received your order in house on March 19 and shipped your rebuilds back out on March 28th on sales order 3831.

As discussed with you the Dionics will sit on a hold shelf until we have enough to do an assembly run of inserts. IF you want them back without being rebuilt we will be glad to ship them.

Anyway,

We have just returned from NAB2007 and are in the standard after NAB Kaos.

Lisa Bolden is your sales rep. Lisa tells me that she has talked with you and that we received your Dionic 90 units which are on the shelf for rebuilding.

Lisa also tells me that we rebuilt batteeries for you and were able to get them out well before leaving for NAB.

As for our Inik lithium ion battery packs:

Yes, we listed them on our web site mid March / early April. We officially signed the contract while at NAB2007 and the factory reps worked our tradeshow booth with us.

We hae been and are taking orders which are beyond our expectations.

Now that we have signed the contract our first primary order of lithium ion battery packs is scheduled to arrive April 30-May 5.

Thank you for your business.

Ron
Thank you for your response. I have no problem with the 6 week wait on the dionics or the work that you have done for me in the past. Thank you for clearing up the situation with the Inik batteries.
