2008 - 2012 GMC SIERRA HYBRID BATTERY
Our re-manufactured hybrid batteries are a product of much research and development. Many of our competitors, simply replace a bad module in the pack and sell you the battery as is. These batteries fail in 3 to 6 months. Beware of these people/companies. ALWAYS ask details about how they rebuild a battery and be sure they recondition ALL the modules (some people call them cells).
All of our batteries are disassembled on an individual module basis, then each module is put through a multi-stage charging process. First we charge the module at a slow, computer controlled rate of charge, depending on the state of the cell to bring it up to its full capacity, balancing the cells in the module and returning the cell to a balanced state as it was when it was new. Very few companies use this method of charging, and even fewer dedicate the time and attention to detail to do it on an individual module basis.
The 2nd stage of charging slowly cycles the cells through a process called reconditioning. Again, the cells are slowly charged, at a computer controlled rate, in a way similar to what the batteries experience while in the car. This happens, in a controlled setting, however at a rate of charge and discharge, that is pre-determined allowing the cells to, in a sense, breathe a full inhale and exhale. This is like when we stop and take a deep breath and feel recharged, the same with the batteries, except they don't need to do it again the next day. This process is much more mechanical than it sounds with the breathing reference, but it effectively brings the cells back to 90 - 95% of their original capacity.
After these processes are complete, the batteries are balanced and stacked according to their respective capacities (measured during the charging process) to balance out the efficiency of the pack even further. This allows the batteries in the pack to work more harmoniously with their neighbors, thus reducing the strain between the cells and extending the life of each individual module and the entire battery. This extreme attention to detail is what makes our batteries superior to our competition and why our customers stay happy and satisfied long after they purchase our battery.
