Answers

 

1) Who is Woodbank Communications?

Woodbank Communications Ltd. is a consultancy company providing training on Batteries and Battery Management Sytems for electric traction, and high capacity energy storage applications.

 

2) Can you supply a custom battery pack (or capacitor or charger or electric generator) for my application?

No. We don't make or supply batteries, capacitors, chargers or electrical generating equipment. However we do have extensive contacts in the battery manufacturing business and if you have a high volume requirement for a custom design we could possibly pass on your request to a suitable battery, charger or other equipment manufacturer.

If you wish to take advantage of this offer, please note that it applies to custom batteries and their associated chargers only and that suppliers will expect conditions, such as the following, to apply:

  • Most suppliers will levy non recurring engineering (NRE) development and tooling costs which could be between £100,000 and £250,000 or more for an automotive (EV) battery, depending on the complexity of the project. See Battery Pack Costs
  • The pre-production samples (the first five or more units) will probablly cost about double the cost of volume production units.
  • Suppliers will most likely not take on the development unless it is accompanied by a firm commitment to follow through with a volume manufacturing contract.

It you are prepared to accept these conditions, go to our Quotation Page to let us know your requirements. There is no charge for this service.

Please note that this service for high volume custom batteries and chargers only. We do not have the resources to procure or sell standard batteries, replacement batteries, batteries for low volume projects or their associated chargers.

3) Can you recommend a supplier of standard cells, batteries, capacitors or chargers suitable for my application?

We are sorry, we do not have the resources to do this. It involves a knowledge of your application as well as maintaining an extensive up to date database of suppliers and their products.

The site however includes a list of ads from our sponsors who may be able to satisfy your needs. The list is updated every time you click on a page.

 

4) Can you provide technical details or performance data about the following batteries, capacitors or chargers?

We are sorry we do not keep a product directory, but you could possibly find what you need from the sponsors' ads on the site. These are updated every time you click on a page.

 

5) Can you provide technical advice to solve a problem I have with my battery application?

We try to provide as much helpful information as possible on this web site but we do not have the resources to answer enquiries about individual technical problems on a free of charge basis nor do we solicit such business. Our business is providing technical training on batteries and battery applications for which we charge a fee. If you wish to take advantage of this service please email us at Woodbank Communications

 

6) Can you please provide more details or explanations of topics on the Web site?

and

8) Can I use materials (text, diagrams and photographs) from the Electropaedia web site in my own publications and or web sites?

The copyright of all the pages on the Electropaedia web site belongs to Woodbank Communications Ltd.

You may freely use extracts of the information published here but only if, in each instance, you prominently acknowledge Electropaedia as the source and provide a link to the web site as follows www.electropaedia.com or by means of a link directly to the relevant page on the www.mpoweruk.com domain. We would also expect you to inform us about such use.

You may not use large sections of text or images and pass them off as your own.

 

9) Can you please provide copies of Battery Standards or Manufacturer's Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) or Patents or tell me where I can find them?

Sorry. We do not hold such documents nor can we provide this service. Standards can be purchased from the corresponding standards setting organisation or they can be accessed via your local library. MSDS can be obtained from the manufacturer concerned. Patents can be obtained from the national patent offices or from specialist search firms.

 

10) Why does the History section not include information about XXXX (topic or person)?

We are constantly expanding the History section adding to it on most days. If there's anything specific you would like us to include please use the Feedback Form to let us know and we'll do our best to cover the topic.

 

11) How can I report errors and ommissions or make a contribution (information - not money) to your Web site?

Thank you for your offer. If you have some interesting information to contribute to the site, please use the Feedback Form for this purpose. We always welcome any opportunity to improve the Web site.

 

12) Can you please exchange links with my Web site?

We have no objections to anybody linking to the Electropaedia Web site and we are flattered by offers to exchange links, however you probably noticed that the only external links on our site are to our sponsors.

 

13) Why do the Electropaedia pages appear on the mpoweruk.com domain?

This is a legacy issue. All of the information on the Electropaedia web site was written by Woodbank Communications and much of it first appeared on the MPoweruk site and many users linked to this site. When the MPower business was wound up, Woodbank Communications took on the responsibility for maintaining the MPoweruk web site which was relaunched and expanded under the banner of Electropaedia. Rather than transferring all of the pages to a new domain, the original domain has been maintained to avoid breaking the links from those sites or users who had linked to the original MPoweruk site.
