EZ Battery ReconditioningCar battery, usually lead acid, is 12-volt with six 2 volt cells connected in series and Marine batteries, usually deep cycle are expensive items to replace. The desulphator featured in a lot of articles using a 555 timer and some assorted capacitors and a MOSFET works well on car batteries, BUT be warned that it is advisable to do this in a Faraday cage as the interference can mess up short wave radio and PLT boxes.
If your car's battery isn't holding a charge or otherwise is not up to par, you may be able to fix it. The most common cause of degraded battery performance in lead-acid batteries is sulfation, which occurs when sulfur collects on the lead plates in the battery, blocking the electric current.
Although the EBL's notification lights don't change color like the Panasonic's do, they still convey much of the same information—a flashing green light above one of the battery slots means the battery is dead or partially charged, and a solid green light means it's fully charged.
However, in terms of the total cost of ownership, including the likely dramatic reduction in battery life resulting from using a trickle charger, then the answer is ABSOLUTELY NO. The Battery Tender® Plus will more than make up the difference in price by extending the useful life of only one engine start battery.
Hi, I have a brand new escooter and the manufacturer says charge it till the charging light goes off but the dealer says from the practical experience it is easy and fast battery refurbishing guide always recommended to charge the escooter for 1 hour for every 10 KM running so that the battery do not generate heat and significantly extends the life.
Deltran's claim that the 1.25 amp Battery Tender Plus battery charger will charge a battery in the same amount of time as a typical 3 amp charger is based on the fact that the Battery Tender Plus charge current is very nearly constant during the bulk charge period, while a typical 3 amp charger, configured like so many chargers on the market, is not.
BatteryStuff Tech For a situation like yours, I recommend using a battery isolator switch, which can be used on up to 120 amp alternators to conveniently allow for adding a spare battery in your car, boat, or RV. The unit is a fully automatic switch that allows the engine alternator to charge 2 batteries, while keeping them electrically isolated from each other.
Conventional lead-acid batteries consist of a number of plates of lead and lead dioxide suspended in a cell filled with weak sulfuric acid Lead oxide reacts with the sulfur and oxygen in the acid to give up an electron, leaving the plate positively charged and producing lead sulfate Lead reacts with the acid by taking in two electrons, leaving it negative while also producing lead sulfate.
