Go with the Experts & Receive a Warranty…
by Tim Osmondson, Publisher of SCA Living Magazine
Yes… We’re known as the go-to source for affordable, top quality batteries (of all kinds, tiny to large, from watch batteries to vehicles) and bulbs (of all types & sizes). But, did you know that we offer fast, convenient repair services for smart phones and professional tablets. Our locally owned Batteries + Bulbs stores in St. Cloud and Sauk Rapids offer onsite, trained cell phone repair technicians ready to serve you with a wide range of issues. Best of all and the most common problems that the technician can repair is a cracked or shattered screen in under an hour.
As a locally owned franchiser of Batteries + Bulbs, our technicians have access to an enormous library of repair manuals for every major manufacturer and model. We use only the highest quality parts and stand behind our work with available warranties, free diagnosis solutions, and participate in the Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association certification process to ensure your phone or tablet is finished properly for a very longtime of use.
What We Fix?
As mentioned earlier, our technicians have access to an extensive library of repair manuals for all major smartphone industry manufacturers; which includes name brand products from Apple, Samsung, Google Pixel, LG, HTC, Motorola and Nokia.
These repair procedures also extend to every model these manufacturers have released. For an example, let’s use Apple, because our technicians can repair everything from the original A1203 model phone to the newest models of iPhone 11+ and everything in between. And that’s true for every one of the manufacturers listed above.
We also service a wide range of smartphone and tablet issues that extend far beyond cracked phone screens and battery replacement. These additional services include repairs to charging ports, rear-facing cameras, speakers, power and home button failure, cell and Wi-Fi antenna.
In addition to this, our technicians can repair these additional phone and tablet components:
• Taptic Engine
• Front-Facing Camera / Proximity Sensor
• Power Flex Cables
• Headphone Jack
• Back Glass
• Fingerprint Scanner
Service You Can Trust
As smart and cell phones have become more and more common, an increasing number of repair shops have sprung up to serve consumers’ repair needs. Unfortunately, not all these shops are trustworthy. According to Brandon Gaille a business blogger states, “70% of all cell phone repair shops entered the market less than 24 months ago. Even worse, many of these shops had no previous industry experience prior to opening”.
Batteries Plus Bulbs sets itself apart from these competitors in an important number of ways.
1. For starters, all repairs begin with a free diagnosis. We’ll investigate the issue to make sure you don’t end up paying for repairs you don’t need. You can also save time by reserving an appointment beforehand.
2. Our technicians work fast, completing most repairs in under an hour. Plus, our stores are open extended hours on nights and weekends to help fit to your busy schedule.
3. We also stand behind the work that we do by offering a 6-month national warranty on parts and labor.
We’re a part of a nationwide leader in the tablet and smartphone repair industry, as a local owner of two Batteries Plus Bulbs locations we have been recognized as the first national device repair retailer to be certified according to the Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association’s (CTIA) Wireless Industry Service Excellence (WISE) Certification Program. The CTIA is a trade association representing the wireless communications industry in the U.S. According to Jason Fladhammer, the head of Batteries Plus Bulbs’ Ascent Repair Operations, the WISE certification ensures “a consistent quality standard across the industry in phone repair.” What this means for you is that you will receive a worry-free experience, knowing that your phone or tablet is being repaired by a capable, certified technician.
What We Carry on Hand?
From Batteries, USB Cords, Charging Ports & Headphone Jacks
We carry a full line-up of Batteries, USB Cords, Charging Ports and Headphone Jacks for most makes and models. If we do not have it in stock it is most likely we can have it to you within a week!
Broken Phone or Tablet: Repair, Instead of Replace
Studies say about 30% of Smart Phone users will damage their phones within the first year.
If your device is less than a couple of years old, it will be much less expensive to repair it than replace it.
If it’s out of warranty, getting it fixed at either of our two Batteries Plus Bulbs locations in St. Cloud or Sauk Rapids will provide you with a NEW warranty on the parts and workmanship. When you have your phone or tablet repaired locally, you won’t have to wonder if all your priceless photos, videos, songs and contacts got transferred from your old device to your new one. Plus, repairing is much more environmentally friendly than disposing of your old device.
So, as you can see, most of the time it makes a lot more sense to just let a professional replace a dead battery or repair the screen, power button, speaker, microphone and so on. After all, why spend the money to replace a broken device, when your old one can be as good as new?
Does your business rely on tablets or other devices? Good news, we offer repair options for businesses too! Call or stop on in at either location on 2710 2nd Street South in St. Cloud or on 27 North Benton Drive in Sauk Rapids to find out more about our commercial repair options, including commercial bids for large volume orders. We work very closely with some of the area school districts repairing the educational tablets used by the students that have cracked screens or inoperable, thus requiring free diagnostic solutions. It has proven that “Going Local” with Batteries + Bulbs locally owned stores as a nationally recognized retailer has allowed them to provide competitively priced repair services, with fast, superior service. We will stop by the schools and personally pick up the devices and take them back to our stores to be repaired in a timely fashion. Thus, dealing with a local company, without having to ship the devices across the country, will save the school district time and money, while at the same time, giving them peace of mind that the devices are still nearby and being repaired.
As you can see, Batteries Plus Bulbs is the one-stop destination for all your tablet and cell phone repair needs. We offer a wide array of repair services, all performed by professionally trained and certified technicians.
