The Model 1900RS Kit is the favorite with customers who own "Western Union" Broadcast studio clocks and want rechargeable capability on the battery that powers the clock. The Model 1900RS Kit can also be used on any SWCC clock which has synchronization capability, including master clocks so equipped. It includes vintage cloth-covered wire for connecting synchronization coils.
Special Note: The standard 1900R3 is supplied with Fahnestock style connections. If you prefer knurled nuts instead, please send us a note, or email us here after placing your order. There is no extra fee for knurled nuts.
This is the deluxe rechargeable battery plus synchronizer kit. Battery life is extended using an internal long-life Lithium-Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) cell. Ideal for clocks where the dial has to be removed to change batteries.
Model 1900RS Kit requires post-build calibration and verification. Please see note in Shipping tab on lead time.
Because of the Lithium battery, we can only provide reasonable shipping costs to US customers. Outside the Continental US, please order the Model 1900GS Kit, which is the same product but uses internal alkaline batteries, regulation and ultracapacitor technology. Absolutely no PO Box numbers. MUST have FedEx deliverable street address.
Synchronizers require pre-shipment calibration and verification which requires time to validate quality performance ( up to 2 weeks).
Important Information and Warranty Terms
Prices are shown in U.S. Dollars (USD).
We make every attempt to provide information needed to choose the right product. We encourage you to contact us if in doubt. Restocking charge is 20% of product purchase price on most models. We do not pay return postage if you choose the wrong product. We no longer carry non-renewable batteries to avoid problems with returns.
If you change your mind and don't want the product, you will receive a store credit. We no longer issue refunds, for example, if you buy a set of batteries, the clock doesn't work, and you refuse our help on the movement. We are happy to exchange for another product with a 20% restocking fee and subject to our standard shipping policy.
We have terms on our generous warranty to avoid our generosity being exploited. We do NOT warranty product that has been disassembled, tampered with, modified, or abused. Our products are not hobby or experiment platforms and are not meant to be used for this purpose. You will pay replacement price if you modify or disassemble the product, damage it, then attempt to return it for warranty repair.
We strive to learn from any defective product. If a unit is modified or disassembled, this destroys the root cause traceability and an opportunity to improve product is lost.
There are some products (for example, the Model 1900WG-4.5V) which are non-returnable due to their low sales volume or custom nature. These are noted in the product description. Please contact us to verify application before purchase.
On-line purchases are processed securely. Credit card purchasing is available through this system. Please contact us if you wish to purchase via some other means.
Sales tax of 8.15% will be applied to residents of Colorado; or home office is based in Broomfield, CO.
What is covered by our 5 year warranty on Renewable Units:
- Internal battery holder
- Internal wiring and electronics, connectors (all products)
- Rechargeable Cell on 1900R units, subject to pro-rating.
The only products subject to pro-rating are the 1900R family rechargeables. With these, for every year from manufacture you will need to pay $10.00 plus return shipping to have it refurbished. The 1900R products are serialized for tracking purposes.
What is NOT covered by our 5 year warranty on Renewable Units:
- We do NOT cover the internal alkaline cells which are user replaceable.
- Any unit which has been tampered with or altered voids warranty.
- Return shipping is users responsibility.
- Products over 5 years old and any 1900R with a 1000 series serial number. If your 1900R with 1000 series serial number fails, we will happily replace it with a new Model 1900R3 at its normal purchase price. 1000 series units are now over 12 years from last manufacture.
