Someone is selling a Garbage Solus Pro Battery that doesn't take a charge on E-Bay for a Whopping $70, sounds pretty Mogus to me, your Bodis one different?

I have to check to see if they are the same, but $70 for a kaput battery isn't something I want to pay for , thanks anyway

The batteries can be rebuilt for like $40-$50 each. Price includes shipping.

I know but I don't have a core battery to rebuild.
Bought a used modis and it was used without battery but that is kinda inconvenient.

Last week I tried to get a quote from Primecell to rebuild my Modis battery. Below is an excerpt of the email I received back from them.

VERY SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE - WE MUST ADVISE:
DUE TO HEALTH CONSIDERATIONS - WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING ANY BATTERIES FOR REBUILD SERVICE.
IF YOU SENT IT ----- IT HAS BEEN RETURNED TO SENDER.
IF WE HAD ACCEPTED YOUR PACKAGE IT MAY HAVE BEEN LOST DUE TO A LONG DELAY IN SERVICE, OR NEVER PROCESSED. NO CHARGES HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED OR APPLIED TO YOUR ACCOUNTS. PLEASE PROCEED WITH ANOTHER COMPANY.
GOOGLE WILL REVEAL OTHERS WHO CAN PROVIDE SIMILAR SERVICE TO SOME OF OUR LISTINGS.

YOUR DISAPPOINTMENT PALES BY COMPARISON TO OUR OWN - WE ARE IN PROCESS OF CLOSING OUR BUSINESS AND WEBSITE AFTER 30 YEARS IN BUSINESS. IT IS A DIFFICULT, FRUITLESS AND EXPENSIVE TASK.

That leaves MTO as the only company I know of who can rebuild our battery packs. See

Can't you just get by with a 12V Lith Ion Jumper and modify it to properly serve as an external power source to the AC adapter charging port or directly to the battery contact points internally? Some are low profile enough to just velcro it on to the back.

Default modis battery life

Even after having my battery rebuilt i found battery life short when using the scope. i purchased a 12v 9800mah rechargable battery pack from ebay , $30.00 and added the right barrel jack to it that fit my modis. it was small enough to velcro to the back of my modis and what a difference. i still keep my modis battery in my modis when using it.

Hi, the Modis and Solus Pro batteries are totally different.

The Modis has a square box battery, and the Solus pro is a long rectangle shape.

Hope this helps
