C5100 POS BATTERY ANALYZER

Batteries are blamed for most cell phone problems. To satisfy the customer, batteries are replaced, often to have the fault recur. The Cadex C5100 battery analyzer assists by allowing to check the battery at storefront with a 30-second test.

Testing mobile phone batteries has never been so easy.
Deploying the C5100 in your store will:

  • Improve customer care
  • Increase revenue and reduce costs
  • Protect the environment by discarding fewer batteries

Product Description

ELEGANT SOLUTION FOR STOREFRONTS

Mobile phone users have been asking for better storefront services, and battery testing fills this need in part. Testing while the customer waits eliminates guesswork by giving the battery a clear assessment in 30 seconds. On a concern, “My phone does not hold charge,” the C5100 will give a good battery a clean bill of health, leading to check other anomalies. The customer will also learn about the limitations of a battery. Cell phone store

USELESS BATTERIES MADE VALUABLE

Studies show that 90% of returned mobile phone batteries can be serviced and reused. Battery refurbishing centers have sprung up that make a second life possible. The Cadex QuickSort™ makes high-volume testing possible. Visit our C7x00 for high-volume refurbishing.
The battery is the only replaceable part in a mobile phones and gets much of the blame. Replacement is often done mostly to satisfy the customer without solving the problem.  Frivolous battery replacement costs the industry millions. The C5100 battery analyzer solves this with storefront service. Stack of batteries

QUICKSORT™ SORTS GOOD/POOR BATTERIES

The heart of the Cadex C5100 is QuickSort™, a patented rapid-test technology that sorts battery state-of-health into three categories:
  • Good: 80–100%, can be reused
  • Fair: 70–80%, replacement recommended
  • Poor: 70% and less, faulty; discard
QuickSort technology

TECHNOLOGY BEHIND QUICKSORT™

QuickSort™ is based on electrochemical dynamic response; it achieves 90–95% sort accuracy* even with a partial charge. As modern Li-ion keeps low resistance with use, measuring the internal resistance no longer provides reliable health estimations.
  • Tests battery with as low as 40% charge
  • Enables charging if the battery has less than the needed  charge level
  • Services single-cell Li-ion 500-5,000mAh

* A 2010 independent study of 5000 batteries determined that QuickSort correctly classified battery SoH, 96.4% of the time

SIMPLE OPERATION

Three action keys make the operation intuitive: TEST checks the battery in 30 seconds; CHARGE fills a battery in 3 hours, and CYCLE provides a full charge/discharge/ charge cycle with capacity readout in mAh. As most mobile phone batteries are single-cell Li-ion; only the mAh rating needs selecting, and the arrow keys will do this. C5100 Top View

RIGIDARM™

The universal RigidArm™ Adapter allows easy connection to mobile phone batteries. Spring-loaded arms lock in the upright position for quick loading, a retractable floor holds batteries vertically, and temperature sensor ensures safe operation.
  • Quick setup, enables repeat action
  • Holds 10 common mAh settings
  • Compatible with SnapLock™ adapters

REACTIVATE LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES*

Li-ion packs often fail due to over-discharge. At about 2.8V/cell, the protection circuit opens and the battery appears dead. Boost activates the circuit and brings the pack back to life. The service lasts a few minutes, but the battery should be full charged. * Of 294 returned batteries, 91% reached 80% and higher capacities; 30% needed Boost Boost

TO STOREFRONT AND NO FURTHER

With storefront testing, a battery stops at the store. Servicing batteries on location builds customer confidences and protects the environment. If a battery needs charging or has a genuine fault, an alternate pack can be given from the pool of tested batteries. Study A typical store gets 10 batteries a day; handling is $15US per pack ($150 per day). Ten stores participated for one month using Cadex battery analyzers. The trial saved close to 2,000 batteries at a cost saving of nearly $30,000.

PRINT TEST RECEIPTS OFF CADEX C5100

The optional printer generates test reports as customer acknowledgement. As part of the setup, PC-BatteryStore™ allows you to enter store information into the printer and customize the print format. After setup, the printer will run off the C5100 without a PC. C5100 Receipt Printer

THE GROWING NEED FOR PORTABLE ENERGY

With the insatiable appetite for information flow, new demands are place on the battery. Smartphones consume more energy than a cell phone and battery testing takes on new meaning. Cadex makes storefront service possible with proprietary rapid-test methods. Cell Phone Capacity
