Battery Reconditioning- Battery Companies PRAY You Never See This Revealing Video

yeah yeah yeah in the middle of the red a little bit less than a little red as you can see this this battery shows it’s got about a thousand current cranking amps the battery restoration chapter 1 let acid battery general information in the average lead-acid car battery golf cart battery or variations like sealed batteries the standard electrolyte solution is thirty-five percent sulfuric acid and sixty-five percent still water my belief is the acid works on the lead in the plates and causes electricity to be released when demanded when this release occurs it leaves behind a sulfation layer if the batteries charged up within a short period of time this sulfation layer is converted back into acid by the electricity applied to the battery so the common belief is that if you leave your lights on or drain your car battery a soft sulfation layer is formed and this can be restored by jumping the car and having the alternator charge up the battery and remove the sulfation layer but if you leave the battery dead and discharged for a long period of time like weeks or months and a hard sulfation layer will form and it is impossible to remove it by charging each cell in a let acid battery that its full capacity will be slightly over 2.1 volts DC so if you count the cells and a 12-volt it will be six cells the battery voltage will drop as its capacity is used most of the starting problems in a car are because the battery posts are dirty and getting good getting a good connection will cause your car not start if the battery electrolyte or water is lower than the top of the plates which is usually caused by your alternate putting out too much voltage and boiling off the water it also won’t start battery post cleaning brush will need to be used on most cars at least once a year to clean the post back down to a clean lead it this don’t have much hope for this battery let’s measure the voltage first and we’re measuring the voltages 210 2.1 right electrolytes fairly clear and knock the bulb isn’t coming off the bottom they’re just came up the bottom slightly but you can see it’s not even close to being in the red this battery is dead as a doornail and electrolyte looks a little muddy here chapter two battery assessment and testing the first thing to do when testing a battery is to have a good voltmeter and hydrometer multimeters can be had for around twenty dollars are a little more at home depot or six dollars at harbor freight and will be very helpful when diagnosing electrical problems in cars and with alternating current in homes the hydrometer’s are less than ten dollars the one you’re looking at costs six dollars at the auto parts place a battery can have the full 12.8 volts but have a low hydrometer reading indicating no actual capacity although it won’t start the car you can tell it doesn’t have the required capacity also for restoration projects it helps to be able to monitor the progress with a hydrometer and multimeter first check the voltage and then check each cell with the hydrometer levels and clean the top of the battery and clean the battery post you get a good connection with the charger look for cracked cases bulged cases indicating the sulfation is push the plates out and deform them pop the caps off the top of the battery and examine the electrolyte levels if the water is low at stilled to at least a quarter inch above the lead plates full meters running it 17.3 too voltz put it on the 40 amp boost rate which is why it’s so high and it’s only running in about the four amps at this point you can see it starting to equalize and boil the electrolyte off though and some of the cells are not doing anything and others are starting the function lot of times it will take hours and hours before you can start it the evenings get going we’re going to call it number 6 chapter 3 battery restoration a car alternator cannot restore battery to full capacity because it cannot converse sulfation as its maximum voltage is usually 13 and a half to 14 and a half volts and it’s not enough to get to a state of Equalization which is around 16 volts on a 12-volt battery charging a battery up will not restore its capacity unless it includes an equalization charging so a trickle charger at 2am charge or any charges that will not get the battery to 16 volts after extensive charging will have little effect on a hard salvation and as such will not restore the battery’s capacity there are three ways to remove the siltation from my research and they are as follows one battery equalization this technique has been used by off-grid solar system owners for a long time to preserve the life of their expensive lead acid batteries some of which cost in excess of three thousand dollars i mean for the whole battery bank would be three thousand dollars if you had 12 batteries and there are $350 of peace you’d be spending a lot of money on batteries and considering their their average life is five years you do everything you can not to spend the money every five years the charger or solar panels are applied to the battery to get into the required voltage to start see the cells gassing and boiling which will be above 15 volts on a 12-volt battery of course high voltages will push electricity into a lower voltage battery and sometimes high currents will also be pushed in this causes heat and heat must be avoided if the battery gets warm that is fine but stopped charging and let it cool down if it gets hot as if it gets too hot you can destroy the battery the equalization will eventually get to the point where the voltage is high amperage is very low like less than two lamps and almost no heat is produced this process may be continued for many hours to get the best results to the battery can have chemical additives like the old vx6 or the modern charge it or battery equalizer which are products that have aluminum sulfate or cadmium sulfate in them to cause the sulfation to be removed I view album or aluminum sulfate the last system for deep sulfation is using a high-frequency stimulator to remove salvation from the batteries here you can see the infinitum that I have it’s got a red LED light on it and when the battery voltage gets up above 12 then it turns to green as you can see I’ve had a couple of the $35 keys alternators using high-frequency and my impression is that they have little effect others have had good success with them initially if the battery is completely dead and has SAT for a long time i would use a high amperage voltage charge to started going and it may take hours to get going any reading on the Chargers showing some amperage has been being delivered to the battery is where it’s going to be starting to charge and you can see in this particular case the charger has started to get up to and camps if it won’t take a charge i would use jumper cables to a good known battery and start the charge of charging for 15 minutes and disconnected and see if it’ll charge start charging on its own some chargers won’t charge a battery it can’t see and often it can’t see a battery with less than four volts once it starts charging i would lower the amperage setting and let it go 48 hours or so and see what voltage it will eventually get up to and what the hydrometer readings it gets too for each cell are I would take my dead battery and charge it up initially to as high as it will go and then do two cycles where i discharged it down to 10 volts and recharged it to get as much of the sulfation converted as possible after it has been restored to its best possible state through the cycle the voltage should get to around 12.8 volts and the hydrometer should get to about 1250 and a testing on the the car will show this capacity is okay or not and then you should be able to start the car easily see the harbor freight fairly accurate they’re both 16 9 160 976 hear that was dead as a doornail is that it did not come back to life completely as you can see the voltage chairs 12.99 which is almost 13 it’s been sitting for several days it hasn’t come down less than that so that’s pretty good but voltage doesn’t mean everything i am a drama shows that the levels that just in the green which is also pretty good and it tests like that pretty much straight across we’re going to show you what the cold cranking amps bra is ok here we have the cold cranking amps draw as you can see it’s close to 13 volts and when I put the drawn it goes down to 200 well 200 is not going to start a car ever so it doesn’t matter if the voltage is up at 13 you know although it just took the surface charge off but if it if it’ll rested 13 that doesn’t mean anything if the capacity that isn’t there it’s not going to start a car you need about 600 to start the car so this battery is not coming back its comeback remarkably considering it had nothing to start with and sat for years it has come back remarkably in that regard but it did not come back enough to be serviceable as a battery battery here was a this is from 10 for august to $MONTH 2004 hello test it sitting in the pile for a bunch of years it’s running it 12 . looks like three volts or volts and went with the test run its over 600 cool so that’s good this is from 0 for this battery here currently about will mate with the load tester you can see that it is running about 800 is taking some of the surface charge and keeping on dropping but it’s sticking out about above 600 so that battery’s good so in the last battery in the line narrow this one here is a from 2000 think you can see it’s like it’s staying up it was dropping a little bit but it’s around 600 this is enough to start the car ok interstate on the end number for their test it is dropping dropping us taking some of the surface charge off but you see it has settles out and it is still staying about 900 gold grand so plenty of juice in that battery all four of these batteries were restored from a junk pile where they’ve been sitting for three to five years and they’re all around 2,000 2002-2004 their old batteries that started out life that like three or four bolts and anywhere from no hydrometer reading too low in the red and they’ve all been restored to a battery that will crank a car from using equalization and sometimes epson salt and sometimes at aluminum sulfate so it’s not impossible to take a battery that’s has a hard sulfation on it and have it come back to life those batteries did not revived
