Bulldog Battery, Inc. is owned and operated by me, Richard Price, and my partner, Frank Ineman.
Frank and I started Bulldog Battery over twenty years ago with the idea that if we sold high quality battery products at competitive pricing and treated our customers as we wish to be treated ourselves, that we would be a success.
Eleven years later in 1999 we had sales in excess of one million dollars and have nine full-time employees. Frank and I have a combined 45 years experience in the battery business. We are located at 37645 Vine St., Willoughby, Oh 44094.
We started out primarily in the automotive battery business but
quickly saw the explosive growth of the battery specialty market. People
could not find replacement batteries for newer cordless appliances and if
they could, were being over-charged. Couple that with the fact that these
people could not get questions answered on the use and care of these
batteries by the stores sales clerks and we could see the need for a
battery specialist. We became a company that sells batteries of all types
at fair pricing and has the knowledge needed to solve customer’s problems.
Several years ago we started selling batteries and accessories for
cellular and cordless phones, laptop computers, and camcorders. Categories
such as computer backup, calculator, watch, and photo batteries were soon
added and fifteen years ago we purchased the equipment and batteries needed
to start building our own rechargeable battery packs and rebuilding
customer battery packs for everything from cordless razors and cordless
power tools to dog collar batteries for invisible fencing.
able to rebuild rechargeable battery packs through replacing the batteries
inside the pack, we can save you money over buying a new battery and at
the same time, increase the capacity substantially. Bob Budzowski heads
our rebuilding operations and through the years has seen a huge variety of
battery packs. We stock thousands of different types of battery cells to
do this and have almost eliminated the word “obsolete” in the battery
business. Laptop computer, two-way radio, and cordless power tools are
categories that we find our customers are told the batteries are not
available. One day later, we have them a new battery at an affordable
A large part of our growth is due to the fact that we keep up
with the ever-changing technology of batteries. The last ten years has
seen the rechargeable appliance manufactures demand smaller, more
powerful, easier to use batteries in a wide variety of battery chemistries
and types. Knowledge is gained through a wide variety of sources for us
and we dispense it freely to all of our customers.
We have been
successful for very simple reasons. We look at each customer as having a
problem that needs to be solved. Sometimes it is a battery that needs to
be replaced and sometimes it is something else causing the battery to not
perform such as charging methods or equipment. We check batteries on
sophisticated analyzers for free to determine if that battery is needed. I
estimate that 1 out of 10 times, it is not the battery but something else.
We give complete refunds for all batteries if they do not solve the
problem and for each category of batteries we stock our warranty is the
best there is. Whatever your problem is, our job is to solve it. If we do
that, we know you will be back, and will bring friends.
