Rathbone Broadcast Batteries, LLC.,  143 Old Huff Hollow Road, Newport, TN 37821

 

Rathbone Broadcast Batteries was created in 2010 and became an LLC in 2011.  Ron L. Rathbone has been consistently serving the battery and charger industries on an international scale since 1989.

 

In March 2008 our prior business dropped a 15 year old merchant account due to theft by new clients in one particular market.   After the US was slammed into our economic depression and the start of the housing bubble many Americans having VIR loans on their homes lost their homes and also received reduced credit lines or removed credit line and credit cards.  A small percentage of people living in the US opted to attempt and utilize credit card charge back loop holes to steal both product and money from the business.  After taking a large hit in these charge backs from new clients who did receive their product 3 to 4 months earlier we had no choice but to join other small businesses in closing our merchant accounts.  Our other option was to increase prices to absorb these losses and gamble each order as a sale or theft.  We No Longer Accept Credit cards.

Disclaimers!

DISCLAIMERS!

We have been in the battery business since 1989 and we know our competitors and client base for many markets. Unlike our competitors we do not sweep anything under the rug and there is no super fine print. Because of client comments to us as well as our own experiences with competitors we know many of their dark sides, and things to expect from a small percentage of our client base more than most of our clients. We also have one client market in particular that has a small percentage of colleagues with a very dark side which tabulates to a lot of lost money for us from stringers and freelancers.

Another difference is that since 1993, Rathbone always supplies Full Disclosure in black and white on the front end of your purchase where the boxes houses and widget buyers-value added distributors, want to be manufacturers, and the rest, give hype and evade their internal policies.

There is no “Yes But” after you receive your product here. We have brand new competitor smartchargers used here for testing their products that arrived here defective out of the box that were refused by the brand for replacement, or less desired repair. We know the rest of our competitors very well.

We are not a giant company, are not a free rental house on product, and our small business checking account will not be monopolized by these few causing financial chaos. Rathbone Broadcast Battery packs are custom manufactured – (manufactured to the client’s specifications), specialty built or special order products. Chargers are special order.

CLOSED.  Fradulent Credit Card Chargebacks, Bankrupt clients, and mainly, US Level and a few local Tennessee partisan politicians blocking 2200 jobs in East Tennessee, Seriously.  I was heavily invested sacrificing everything to bring those jobs to East Tennessee.  You voted for them Tennessee.

 
Need a job?  Well, Tennessee, you voted them into office.  As of 4th quarter 2013, Tennessee has the highest crime rate in the nation and the worst state health program in the nation, and is rated number 47 in education.
