Battery reconditioning is becoming an extremely viable way of not only saving money but creating a cheap alternative power source for your home & appliances.
Below you learn how to recondition batteries at home & see that reconditioning your old laptop & car batteries is just as good as replacing them with new ones, significantly cheaper though.
Furthermore, recharging old batteries (even with a trickle charger) is not the same as reconditioning them as a recharged battery will only hold the charge for a short period of time whilst a reconditioning a battery will be similar to restoring it into new condition.
How To Recondition Batteries At Home – 7 Steps
1. First of all test the voltage of the battery to ensure that it is at least between 10v to 12v otherwise if it’s less than this, this procedure may not work for it
2. Heat ½ a liter of distilled water (not tap water as it contains chemicals & other impurities) up to 65° C
3. Pour ¼ kg of Epsom salts into the warm water & ensure that is properly dissolved
4. Remove all the battery’s cell caps, or in the case of a sealed battery you will have to drill through the blank caps to allow you to remove the fluid already in the battery & replace it with the new solution
5. With the aid of a funnel pour the Epsom salts solution into each cell of the battery & then replace the caps or plug the holes that you drilled in the case of the sealed battery.
6. To ensure that the solution the new solution in the battery is correctly distributed throughout shake the battery carefully.
7. The last step before your battery is fully reconditioned is to place it on a trickle charge for 24 hours after which time it will hopefully be like new & ready for your car or to power some appliance.
Actually we can recondition all types of batteries - very simple way
