Most people don't know what to do with dead batteries other than to throw them away. But with EZ Battery reconditioning, you'll learn how to get your batteries working like new again.
EZ Battery reconditioning will help you save a lot of money and can even introduce you to a new business opportunity - you can buy old batteries from people, recondition them and then sell them! You may also even be able to open up your own reconditioning service.
EZ Battery reconditioning contains 21 chapters of step-by-step instructions on how to restore old batteries. There are lots of photos and diagrams that will help you along the way. The entire process is divided into three simple steps. First, you need to determine whether it's a lead acid, Li-ion, Ni-Cd or Ni-MH battery. Next, you need to test the battery to see if it can be reconditioned and lastly, you need to recondition that battery by using tools you probably already have in your garage.
5 Facts About Battery Reconditioning
1. Battery restoration or reconditioning is not the same as recharging a battery.
Just recharging a battery will restore some of the battery’s charge for a short time whilst reconditioning it will restore it to its full capacity.
2. The most common cause of battery degradation & poor battery performance in lead acid batteries is sulfation.
This is the build-up of sulfur on the lead plates which restricts the flow of electrical charge in the battery which causes “dead cells” and consequently the battery life & performance to deteriorate.
3. The types of batteries that can be successfully reconditioned include all types of batteries from deep-cycle gel batteries to the normal 12-volt car battery as well as the new high-tech type of car batteries which can be reconditioned using standard lead acid battery reconditioning techniques.
4. Before starting the restoration process you will need to test your battery which can be done cheaply with a multimeter battery tester as well as a battery analyzer.
5. A word of caution Whilst the rewards of reconditioning batteries are massive, you need to exercise extreme caution & follow safety procedures when working with batteries & acid.
For example, the recondition processing of lead-acid batteries involves working with extremely dangerous acids (sulfuric acid) which should be handled with extreme care – safety goggles & rubber gloves should be worn whenever working with batteries.
If it comes in contact with your skin (or worse your eyes) you need to know in advance how to treat battery acid burns. If this does happen, flush the area immediately by running cold water over the affected area (or eyes) for at least 15 minutes & then assess the damaged area.
