A couple of months ago I bought 8 Proformer Batteries as back ups to my 10 I currently own. I was told they had a shelf life of 3 years (meaning I could store them for up to 3 years and then still use them for full life cycle expectancy).

I haven't even taken the batteries out of the boxes. They've never been on a charge yet, and they still have all the original paperwork and warranty cards as well.

Anton Bauer no longer makes the Proformers but still warranties them.
As far as I know you can't even buy them anywhere anymore. B & H Photo is out of stock.

They list for $185 each.
I paid $150 each plus shipping which brought it to $155 each.

Will sell them for $145 each including shipment within the U.S.
Or buy all 8 for $140 each ($1,120) includes shipment! Out of country buyers add $30 for shipment.

Oh, and to answer a couple emails I got: the reason I'm selling is because I currently own 2 Dionic 90's and am ordering 4 more. These will become my primary batteries and I'll use my current 10 Proformers as "back ups."

The Proformers run all cameras and will run a 435 at 150 fps. I've run 2 full mags at 150 fps and the two Proformers (needed for the 24V 435) still had juice left in them.
They fully charge back up in about 45 minutes. Great batteries, I just don't need these extra 8 as back ups anymore.

These 8 never used Proformers would be all you need for a good 2-3 years.
