Battery Repacking

Is an excellent way to get your tools and equipment working efficiently again. An Akkupak repacked battery is like a brand new one in the original casing. In most cases the repacked battery will have higher capacity cells installed, therefore providing longer run time than the original.

Akkupak’s workshop is equipped with spot welding machinery for battery pack assembly.

Repacking is a good option when:

  • The battery pack is hard to obtain
  • They are not available any more
  • The cost of the original is above your budget
  • Longer run time is required

The process involves dismantling the battery pack casing and removing all the internal cells and components. Akkupak then selects the most suitable Panasonic or Sanyo cells to rebuild the pack in the same way as it was made in the factory. High quality nickel strip is spot welded to connect the cells together ensuring a long and reliable working life. The electrical components are replaced and the integrity of the circuitry restored. After re-assembly, the packs are charged as part of the testing procedure and then returned to the customer.

Types of devices and tools suitable for repacking are:

  • All cordless power tools and tools with built in batteries
  • Woodworkers dust masks and helmets
  • I-Robot (Roomba)
  • Welding mask helmets
  • Dust Buster vacuum cleaners
  • Pruning Shears
  • Measuring devices and survey equipment
  • Auto workshop battery packs
  • Meters and lights
  • Two Way radios
  • Theodolites
  • Custom made hobby packs

Power Tool Batteries can be repacked to a variety of different cell capacities.  Akkupak will endeavour to use the hightest capacity cells that are most practical for your battery casing and charging unit.  There are limiations with cell size, battery case size and chemistry which all have a bearing on the actual capacity used in the repacking process.
