How to Revive a Battery-Effective Method
One thing is certain; your battery life will finally come to an end. Severe temperatures both hot and cold can shorten your battery lifespan. Sulfur that builds upon a battery's lead plates is another common factor that limits battery life, as well as being exposed to excessive conditions. Initially, the build-up of sulfur reduces the battery's ability to function well, and after a period of time in which the build-up is excessive, the battery life fails.
When this happened, it is advisable to revive your dead battery back to life instead of buying a new one. You need to test the battery to see if it can still be revived. You can still revive your battery if the meter reads 10 to 12 volts. If the meter shows a reading below this perimeter, the battery is no longer useful. Battery reviving is not only limited to recovery of the battery life, but also other batteries that people usually use. The same testing procedure is used to determine if your battery needs to be revived.
Reviving batteries is just another way of restoring batteries back to life, particularly today because batteries are so expensive. In fact, there is a chance that you may not need to buy a new battery if you can revive discarded batteries. In most cases, these batteries are free.
How to Revive a Battery That Won't Charge
When you turn on your device or your car key, you expect your device or car to start. This is what happens to most of the people who go through this daily ritual. But, in some people the reverse may be the case, the device may refuse to turn on or the engine may refuse to start. Why? The battery doesn’t charge, and the good news is that there are ways to fix this without replacing the battery.
The battery is among the most important components of your vehicle. It is very important that you are familiar with how it works. Knowing about your battery will help you avoid any emergency malfunctions, like when the battery doesn’t charge. If you have already been driving miles, or even if you haven't even left the garage yet, and you discover that your car battery doesn’t charge, you can try some solutions to help revive your battery. In the following paragraphs, we will discuss what it takes to revive a battery that won’t charge.
At times all it takes is a small push to really get started, and in the case of electronics, that push is referred to as a jump-start. Except you have an incredible chance to drive, you have probably had to jump-start a car once or twice, and the process for a lithium-ion battery is almost similar.
How to Revive a Battery With baking Soda
To do this you need to take the following steps to revive a car battery with baking soda. These actions are not technical but need special care because the old battery solution is acidic and contains lead. You need to take precautions when performing the procedure.
Stage 1. You need to wear your protective gear before you are ready to revive your battery. Wear your gloves, apron, goggles, and mask. Similarly, prepare a weak solution of baking soda and water on the side to neutralize any unexpected splashes or spills.
Stage 2. Get rid of the corrosion on the battery terminal. Make a paste-like solution of baking soda and water in a 2: 1 ratio. Then take your toothbrush and plunge it into the solution. Rub it on the battery terminal to eradicate corrosion.
Stage 3. After removing the corrosion, you can measure the battery voltage reading with a voltmeter. Make sure the cable is properly connected to the battery terminal. The red wire goes to the positive terminal of the battery and the black wire goes to the negative terminal.
Stage 4. Get a flat head screwdriver and do away with the battery covers. Put all battery caps in a temporary container to avoid losing them. Next, gradually lift the battery and empty the old electrolyte solution into the container. Do not dispose of the old battery acid solution. Neutralize it by pouring 500 grams of baking soda powder into the container.
Stage 5. Prepare a 2: 1 solution of baking soda and water. Mix it very well and fill each battery cell with the baking soda solution. After filling all the cells, close them again with the caps and shake gently. Let it continue to stir for 30 seconds to a minute. Then open the lid and pour the solution into the same bucket that you used in the earlier step.
Stage 6. In this step, you need to replace the old battery electrolyte solution with an Epsom salt solution of 1 molar concentration. Mix well to avoid undissolved solids. Then, refill each cell and cover it with its lid.
Stage 7. Now you need to recharge the revived battery at 12V / 2 amps slow charging mode. Charging generally takes 24 to 36 hours. After charging, read the battery voltage with a voltmeter. If the reading is around 12.42 volts to 12.6 volts, your battery is already in good condition.
Stage 8. And lastly, subject your reviving vehicle battery to a load test. This can be done with a battery charge tester that can be purchased at any hardware store. To pass the load test, it must successfully hold 9.6 volts for 15 seconds at half the CCA rating.
How to revive a dead cell battery
New batteries consist of cells connected in series and each cell has a base voltage, such as 1.5 or 2 volts. The popular rechargeable lead-acid car battery consists of 6 cells of 2 volts with a total of 12 volts. When the cell is dead, the cell voltage goes down to zero and doesn’t provide the oomf that the voltage gives, the battery can become 9.5 or 10 volts. Or it may not take any effort. Generally, this is not enough to start your car, you cannot recharge it, and the battery is said to be dead.
The reason this happens is that the cell, which is made up of electrodes and electrolytes, has used up all its chemicals and cannot withstand the reaction, or the cell has developed an internal short circuit or has opened due to a failure of the internal structure of the electrode failing from aging because the electrode plates are eroded. Some precautions should be taken before taking the steps mentioned above on your own.
