    I am good but #1 training partner has a fairly new transmitter that has no range so I am off to Batteries Plus tomorrow to see what they can do.

    2005 G2 that knock on wood is still going like the energizer bunny. Original battery on Honda 4 wheeler finally crapped out after 13 years. Discharge all the way once a month and recharge if your not using everyday and they will last longer.

    I hope people didn't panic buy and dry up the supply. NiMH batteries aren't something to be stockpiled, as they go bad just as quickly (if not more so) on the shelf, as they do from being used and re-charged.
    Same with Pro Control batteries. Got mine replaced for $20/reciever instead of $35 through TT.

    My question is not on the transmitter batteries but the collar/reciever batteries as they are a sealed almost seperate unit as far as I can tell from the rest of the collar. Are those going to be produced or is there a way to disassemble them further than meets the eye and have an establishment like Batteries Plus make one?

    I took the G3 transmitter battery pack to Batteries Plus as suggested, $15 plus tax to build one, ready tomorrow, a simple solution if it works.

    I'm pretty sure that it can be done. I just haven't had one go bad yet, to necessitate my undertaking of the task.

    Just about any rechargeable battery can be gutted and rebuilt using new cells.
    The trick is in not destroying the housing that contains the cells, and keeps water out.
