    Default SmartRIB Battery carrier PN

    Hi Guys,

    I have recently gotten an SmartRIB in excellent condition, except for one small thing - the battery carrier had a leaky battery wich has corroded one of the terminals. I have fully inspected and cleaned the RIB's PCB itself, and there are no signs of corrosion, so the RIB itself is fine, I just need to replace the aluminium battery carrier. I have cleaned the contacts with a light acid (vinegar) to remove the electrolyte,a dn then thoroughly rinsed and cleaned with PCB cleaned, however i'd like to just get a new one.

    Does anyone have a part number? The tray has 09-80371E79 written on it, but I can't find any references to this anywhere.

    Cheers,
    Matt

    Thread moved to Parts ID.

    Here's the Smart RIB service manual.

    Pages 8 & 9 have the parts list. Is anything there helpful?

    You may also run into issues as the Smart RIB is very old and likely NLS (No Longer Supported).

    Hi Mars, Thanks for the link.

    I did have a look through there, and it seems the battery power supply is optional and not documented in the service manual. I'll see what I can dig up..

    Cheers,
    Matt

    Come morning, (it's overnight in NA now) someone may be able to help who is familiar with the part number. I know it's out there somewhere

    If you can get one, because MOL shows it as cancelled.

    Those aluminum battery clips used to be corner-electronics-store grade cheap ass battery holder clips from the 1960-70's, before all the battery holders started to get made out of plastic. You should be able to find one similar at a general purpose electronics store (if there are any left), or find one at one of the "antique" electronics vendors on eBay. This kind of thing Radio Shack used to sell, but not very many stock these kinds of items anymore. You might have to reconstruct it from newer plastic 2x or 4x battery holders, and epoxy it into the plastic cover or something...
