Default Question about EPIRB service

I have an ACR Globalfix Pro RLB-37 P/N 2844 which I purchased in 2011 I believe. I wanted to make sure that 1) you could do the service and battery replacement for the device and 2) that it was worth the expense in your opinion vs purchasing a new one. This was state of the art when I purchased it but certainly there are newer more capable ones out there now. I fish out of a 25 foot center console 40 miles plus off the coast of North Carolina. If you are recommending service/battery replacement, could you send contact and shipping information and what I need to get that done. Many thanks!

Hi. Many people are still having batteries replaced on RLB-32s still. As long as they are in ok condition AKA not cracked, sun damaged, etc. We have batteries for those in stock.
