DataLive announced that they started to sell “refreshed” RAID controller batteries on Oct 21 2014.
Generally, reused batteries have a deterioration/weakness problem – in order to solve this, DataLive decided to replace only cell parts of reused batteries with new ones.
This “refreshed” batteries (cell replacement) have 2 merits:
1) Cheaper than batteries in mint
2) Efficient use of resources(They don’t throw away serviceable parts)
As a first step, DataLive sells refreshed batteries for HP,DELL servers on their EC site(Note:this EC site is written in Japanese).
