Battery Doctors Makes Charitable Mission to Borneo

Share Article

A United Kingdom distributor of Battery DoctorsÂ? California-based business traveled to Southeast Asia on a charity mission to provide communication networks and power for the small villages along BorneoÂ?s rivers.

A group of Battery Doctors volunteered to trek to Malaysia on their days off from work to recondition batteries for people in the remote villages of Borneo. The United Kingdom division of Battery Doctors, a California-based company, made it possible for these small villages to communicate with each other and to have power for more than only a few hours per night.

Hywel Philippart, one of the UK team members, described the conditions in the villages prior to their arrival: “Until now, the way to get a message to the people in the longhouse was to call someone in the town of Medamit and ask them to put the word about that if anyone is going up the river past the longhouse, could they please pass on this message.” Now these small villages can directly communicate with the use of their newly reconditioned batteries.

Lead acid batteries are used in virtually any industry from automobiles to farming, trucking, boating, construction, in forklifts, golf carts, fleet vehicles, hospitals, telecommunications, and the list goes on. The Battery Doctors distributors throughout the world use an environmentally-friendly method of reconditioning—not just recharging— lead acid batteries that would have otherwise been discarded.

The difference between reconditioning batteries and the traditional method of rebuilding batteries is the unique Battery Doctors process. The batteries are not taken apart. Instead, a small amount of a chemical exclusive to Battery Doctors called ProBat™ is poured into the battery. ProBat dissolves the lead sulfate crystals that cause 80% of all lead acid batteries to fail. The battery is then charged, prepped, and ready to work, often doubling the life of the battery.

Anyone can start their own environmentally-friendly business of reconditioning batteries. The chemicals used by Battery Doctors are only available through Battery Doctors distributors and are not sold in stores. This provides for almost no competition, and that is one of the reasons why their battery reconditioning business is so successful.

In addition to setting up a communication system, the UK team used reconditioned car batteries to supply the villages with power. Before the team’s visit, the people only had four hours of power each evening; anything left unfinished would have to wait until the next night. After the team reconditioned the batteries, the people had enough power to last them throughout the day. If these batteries had not been reconditioned, they would have mostly likely been discarded into the Malaysian rivers or jungles. The people are now able to use safe, reconditioned batteries with little expense.

Marc S. Keith, Director of Product Development for Battery Doctors, says, “We are revolutionizing the battery industry. We are taking batteries, many of which would have ended up along our highways or in our landfills, and putting them back into service. I am very proud to be able to contribute to our environment while at the same time helping people to realize their dreams of owning their own business, because these Battery Doctors businesses can be extremely profitable.”
