Rex Curtsinger learned of rebuilt batteries when he went in search of a battery for his own car. With little money to spend, the rebuilt battery was the solution to a dependable battery on his very limited budget. Rex learned that the separators between lead plates in batteries were very often the cause of failure. The tar top on batteries could be melted to gain access to the inside of batteries, and the separators could be replaced when the lead plates were still healthy. The batteries were then re-tarred and ready for further service. Rex took this knowledge and started his own small battery rebuilding business and a short time later partnered with his cousin Dale Schwitsch and opened D&R Batteries in Decatur, IL. As the business grew they also incorporated a line of new batteries.
