Reconditioning Batteries - Is It Worth It?

You can get the complete Battery Reconditioning Report by Clicking Here!


Reconditioning batteries is not a new profession. It has been around for a reasonable amount of time in the "lead acid" (auto and marine batteries) business. In it's infancy lead acid batteries were ...
 relatively cheap and our concern for the environment was not as predominate as it is today. So when your dad or grandfather had a dead car or tractor battery, they just threw the old one away and got a new one. Good for pops, not so good for mother nature!

These days all that has changed, there are all types of batteries in todays world, Lithium Ion (rechargeable mostly in high end electronics), Nickel Cadmium (rechargeable used in cordless tools , etc.), Nickel Metal Hydride (long life battery used in hearing aids and detectors etc.), as well as Lead Acid.

One businesses that could benefit immediately from this type of knowledge is the renewables industry, and here is why.

If you have a battery bank for solar, wind, or magnetic energy generator, you can acquire used batteries (deepcycle) like golf cart batteries (car batteries won't work for long in a solar or wind bank) for your system except you really don't know that battery's "rate of charge" (or how many charging cycles that battery has been through, 2 or 22) when you size a battery bank for load you need to know this information. The rest is pretty technical so I won't bore you with the details, but if you could recondition those used batteries back to their original state now you have good batteries for your battery back up.

With new 6 and 12 volt deep cycle batteries going for $300 up to $1500 EACH, that is some significant savings.
Now, armed with that knowledge, can you see where reconditioning batteries could be a great periferal business to the popular renewables industry?, not to mention all the other things that need to run on batteries!

Ok back to the title "Is it Worth It" - Absolutely!
Overall  the greatest savings will be to the environment. The thousands of batteries that end up in our landfills and overseas as ewaste could be reconditioned and used over and over. If only one person started a business doing this it could save literally hundreds of batteries from being dumped.

I just found a great guide online to learn how to do exactly that, recondition old batteries.
