Are your batteries refurbished or brand new?
CutRateBatteries.com only sells BRAND NEW compatible battery packs, manufactured by ISO 9001 certified manufacturing plants in conformance with quality standards and guidelines applicable to OEM battery packs.

Are your products as good as brand name battery packs?
Yes, they absolutely are. Our compatible or aftermarket battery packs are manufactured by ISO 9001 certified plants, using the highest quality cells and materials, under same strict high standards and guidelines applicable to OEM battery packs. The only difference is the savings (up to 70% off retail) you will enjoy. Best of all, in many cases we provide warranties that are longer than the ones you would typically find with OEM purchases. Lower prices, longer warranty and supreme quality all help you make a smarter buying decision and reward you with a better return on investment.
What is the shelf life of your battery packs?
If stored properly, the shelf life of our products is typically 2 years.
Do all of your products have money-back guarantee?
All of the products sold by Cut-Rate Batteries carry a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied with our products in any way, we will gladly replace the product or refund your money when products are returned within 30 days of purchase. After the initial 30 days, most defective products are still covered for replacement up to 12 months from original purchase but no refunds can be issued. Due to our aggressive pricing, we cannot refund shipping charges. Please refer to our Return Policy on how to initiate the return for replacement or refund process.
How much do I save by using compatible or aftermarket battery packs?
You will have real savings, up to 70% off retail prices you find with the OEM. Exact savings will depend on the battery packs you use.
Here are some examples to give you an idea:
Motorola battery part number HNN9628A is used in Motorola GP88, GP300, GTX Series and LTS2000 two way radios. The Motorola retail price for the 1100 mAH, NI-CD chemistry battery pack is $84.00. The Cut-Rate Batteries part number M322C1-D is a fully compatible alternative that you can purchase for only $27.60 which leaves you with around 68% savings!

Similarly the Symbol battery part number 21-40340-01 is used in the Symbol PDT6840 Series Bar Code scanners. The Symbol retail price for the 2000 mAH, Li-ion chemistry battery pack is $149.00. The Cut-Rate Batteries part number SY46L2-D is a fully compatible alternative that you can purchase for only $64.00 which leaves you with around 60% savings!

Best of all in both cases, you end up with a premium quality battery pack made with the highest quality certified Japanese cells, a 12 month repair or replacement warranty and a 30-day money back guarantee if you are unhappy with our battery pack for any reason. So be smart, you have nothing to lose. Give us a try!

What is OEM? Do you sell OEM products?
OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. The manufacturers of your wireless equipment such as two way radios manufactured by Motorola, Kenwood, Icom etc. are all OEMs, and the battery packs they sell are OEM branded battery packs. Similarly, OEMs for barcode scanners includes Symbol, Intermec, LXE Technologies among others. We do NOT sell OEM battery packs. Cut-Rate Batteries offers only brand new compatible battery packs that are guaranteed to perform just as good if not better than the OEM brands in terms of quality and performance - all with significant cost savings to you.
What is "compatible"?
Compatibles are 100% brand new batteries that are made specifically for your wireless equipment by manufacturers other than OEMs. They are manufactured to match or exceed OEM specifications and they deliver the same quality results just like the OEMs would. Cut-Rate Batteries compatible battery packs are developed by ISO9001 certified manufacturing plants using state of the art technology for the finest quality batteries. Each battery pack is tested throughout the manufacturing process to match or outperform the original equipment’s specifications for form, fit and workmanship. In addition, our compatible battery packs save you up to 70% on your cost price when compared to the OEM.
