Maybe it's because everybody here heats a cup of water in the micro instead of in a kettle....

You got that right!

Especially, here in California....

Received the 6651 battery back today after being re-celled by mtobattery.com.

Battery looks very good visually. Hardly can tell it was opened up.

Charged it up fully and then tried using it on battery power.

The 6651 started up and works normally!

Only concern (besides message to change backup batteries) is the text I see on the battery status window regarding the main battery. See photo below.

Are the 'Not supported' status messages due to an issue with the battery circuit board (battery re-builder said they had no way to test circuit board) or is there another reason?

Thanks for any input.

Nice!

I guess the board inside the battery maybe didn't support the news cells? Not sure but it might be the case.

I’m happy to hear that. I’ll have to consider them for my 790 and 900 cells then! Thanks for the update !!

I would tend to lean to the idea that the new cells were too high capacity for the charge circuit, but it is possible that after all this time and all the banging around that the charge circuit has failed. Keep an eye (or finger) on the battery pack to ensure that it doesn't get too hot when charging and perhaps avoid leaving it on charge over night or when you're out of the house (at least until you know it isn't getting too hot).

Would you recommend mtobattery.com to other members then?

Thanks for your input.....it's too bad they had no way to check circuit board....

I did think of issue of heat while it was charging up.....battery case hardly felt warm at all....will be careful about charging as you suggest...

I think so.

They were responsive to my email inquiries and had clear communication.

They did warn me in advance that they had no way to check circuit board.

Since they could not check circuit board, they said this would be an 'as-is' deal, ie, they would replace cells, but no guarantee about it working properly. However, due to this they gave me pretty low price. So, that seemed like a fair deal.

Turnaround time was pretty quick.

Battery was well packed in package and shipped UPS Ground with tracking number.

Cosmetically, they did a very good job with the casing. You have to look closely to see that it has been opened.

Battery did charge up after about 2.5 hours, in line with what the 6651 manual estimates.

So, think overall this was a very good smooth transaction.

Hope this is helpful info.

Also, if you don’t mind, can you (when you have a chance) give us testing information on if it’s similar to the original battery life ?

I just called them about re-celling the Gemini/Cosmo. They don't do cell phones, regardless of battery size. Makes sense: it would be pretty hard, I imagine, to work in a cell phone format. Too compact, maybe.

Doesn't sound too bad then. I am glad that it worked out for you.

The practicalities over the charge circuit are that without the service manual or the circuit diagram, they are not going to be able to tell if the circuitry worked to spec before they opened it, let alone after they reassembled it. So I can understand their logic and reasoning. It isn't them selling you short or anything. It is to be expected.

I will try to keep track of how long battery charge lasts....but since I received Intermec with dead battery, it's hard to compare it to original.

That's too bad....hope you can find another vendor to do it.

Yes, think all things considered in this situation, I think it went well.

Thanks for explaining about circuit and testing situation. Understand why they could not test.

I certainly will be willing to send them another battery to re-cell if needed.
