Hello all,

I am trying to get six AB Hytron 50s recelled in Los Angeles and I came upon this website. I am wondering if anyone has done biz with them and how the quality of their work is.

I called them and they told me they use LG cells and average turnaround is 3 weeks. I have not found any other places they offer such a low price and are in CA. They are in Ontario.

Victory Battery was trying to charge the same price as buying a new battery.

Thanks!

Buy some Dionics. I went the Hytron recell route via Rathbone once and will never waste my money again.

Thanks for the heads up guys. I'll give Paul a call.

Does anyone know if a 3 year old Quad InterActive charger can still charge Dionics? Is there an upgrade needed?

Give Paul or someone in tech support at AB the serial number and they can tell you if you need a chip upgrade. Think the software revision needed is: 4.7 If you do need an upgrade the chip was around $45.

Yes, it can charge the Dionic's. There just may be a REV or two higher that may have some slight charge routine improvements.

PS: I don't know if I want to deal with any RED SOX fans...........being a Yankee fan and all..........!!!!!!!!! :blink:
