I just bought a Duralite Lithium Ion batter for my JR 10X the one without case. I have a spare case and I took it out of the package today and used a digital ESV to check it before soldering the leads to the case's litle board. The ESV shows 0.41v. Pack is dead I guess or has a open cell I assume.

Anyone else had a problem with Duralite TX packs??? I bought it from Ron at Rick's and I will call him Monday morning. Service is never a problem with Ron, thats for sure.

I can't check the cells as Duralite has a circuit board the packs leads come out of. I have never ran Duralite packs as the "charge board" has always been something to fail in my opinion. that could be what is wrong now, who knows. I'm not going to do anything but return a new pack that doesn't work. If I had it for a while, that would be different.

If Ron can't take care of you Duralite will.

Call Jack at Duralite he will take care of it. They will probably send you a new pack and ask you to return the bad one to them, take your credit card number to bill you if you don't return the bad one that way you will get the good one quick.

I recieved my second battery from Rick's today and guess what??? It was dead as a door nail too. Their was a date on this pack and package. It said Duralite made it May 23, 2005. I am just going to get my money back. Ron is selling crap that is so old it has went bad on the shelf. Who wants a two year old battery??? Not me. He needs to throw that crap away. No cell laying partially charge for almost two years on the shelf with no use is any good.

Ron gave me a call back and he did not know the cells were that old he told me. All his clearance items are things that have not moved for a while and he did not have anymore packs to send me. He told me to give Jack a try at Duralite and he told me what to tell him. Problem solved. Jack told me he would be happy to swap it out and send me a brand new pack. All is well that ends well I guess. Both companies did everything they could to make it right. Ron offered me a refund right away if I wanted it.
