About Us

Our Story

Bulldog Battery, Inc. is owned and operated by me, Richard Price, and my partner, Frank Ineman.

Frank and I started Bulldog Battery thirty 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. We have founded our company on providing the best service possible. We are no longer just a battery company but a problem-solving company. 

As of 2020, we have grown to 13 fulltime employees with over 170 years of combined battery experience. We are located at 37645 Vine St., Willoughby, Oh 44094. Our automotive and commercial batteries are of the highest quality.  We offer 5, 6, and 7-year warranties, free charging system testing, free battery testing, and on most vehicles, free installation.

We started out primarily in the automotive battery business but over the years have followed the explosive growth of battery-powered devices. We have evolved to become a service-oriented company.  Today we not only sell every type of battery available but now install internal batteries and repair cell phones, Ipads, tablets, laptops, key fobs, and watches. We also service and install back up power systems for both commercial and solar applications. We repair mobility scooters, kids ride on toys, commercial battery chargers.

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 twenty 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, cordless power tools, and dog collar batteries for invisible fencing. We can repack or custom make virtually any battery pack. 

By being 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 his twenty-five years of experience, has rebuilt thousands of battery packs. We also offer a full line of lithium back up batteries for C&C machines. We stock thousands of different types of battery cells to do this and have almost eliminated the word “obsolete” in the battery business. 

A large part of our growth is due to the fact that we keep up with the ever-changing technology of batteries. The last fifteen years have seen the rechargeable appliance manufacturers demand smaller, more powerful, and 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 a very simple reason: 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 issues. 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 battery category, 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.
