Anton/Bauer TITON 90 Gold Mount batteries, no reason to recell your old batteries

Recommended Posts

The compact size of the new Titon batteries, makes it the perfect battery to replace your old DIONIC 90 or HC batteries. With the size being slightly smaller and weight (1.76lbs), you can now run lighter than ever before. I understand that 'recelling' your old batteries was a preferred option, as is was more economical than buying a new DIONIC 90/HC or even the XT90, but I am bringing back the old 'trade in' program that Anton/Bauer used to have to save you money!

For every old Gold Mount or VMount battery that you send us for 'trade in', I will sell you a brand new Titon 90 (Gold Mount or VMount) for $218.00. That's right, $218.00. To recell an old battery will cost you $190.00, so for an extra $28.00, you get a brand new battery, with a PowerTap connector, USB connector and 2yr warranty.

Please contact me directly if you are interested in upgrading your batteries to the new Titon series of batteries. I can offer similar discounts on the 150wh versions or the XT90/150's if you are interested in those too.

Thank you.

Sounds like a pretty killer deal, thanks for this Paul. May I ask, what if the batteries are in need of recell so badly that they're not currently functional? "Rejuve"

Hi Will,

The point is to get rid of these batteries that don't work and 'trade them in' to a new working battery. :)

We'll take a battery back, no matter the condition. In return, you'll get a brand new shiny battery!

Just curious about this:

 

The Titon batteries are designed to handle a 10 amp load. What were the Dionic 90's designed to handle?

Hi Lawrence,

The DIONIC 90 was 7amps and the DIONIC HC was 10amps.

Paul,

Is there a similar trade in for the more expensive XT-90?  For those keeping score at home, the XT-90 is 99 Watt hours and is capable of 12 AMPS continual draw (versus the Titon which is 92 Watt hours with a 10AMP draw).  Comes with a heftier price tag of course (I bought eight of them recently and they are fabulous).  Same size and weight as the Titon.

Thanks Paul!  I'm going to to out our age here but Paul and I have been doing business with each other for over twenty years (25+).  He has always been a great Allie to the Steadicam community.

 

Another question, for people using cameras such as the Alexa LF or the Panavision DXL-2, would you still recommend the XT-90s over the Titons?  The Titon seems a far better price point for most applications, but some of us need to be prepared for all sorts of high draw setups.

I probably would recommend the XT90 on those high-current draw applications. They are the preferred battery of the major Rental Houses for that reason. And, the XT's will have a longer life span.

This temporary 'Trade In' program is only going to be valid thru June 30th. If we feel that it was successful, then might do something again after that.

Thank you.
