If you own a [tag-tec]homemade electric car[/tag-tec], one of your major cost would be the battery units. An average sedan electric vehicle (EV) would need 10 to 15 units of battery.
To save cost, most EV conversion manuals suggest to use weaken or dead lead acid batteries. If the battery is dead, how do you bring it back to life? This is where the reconditioning process comes in.
When a battery is dead, it is not dead per se. There is still ways to revive it. That has lead me to do some research battery science and I stumbled upon Kevin Dixon Battery Reconditioning manual.
Kevin is also known as the Battery Geek and he is an electrical technician with more than 15 years experience. After a brief email correspondence with him, I’ve decided to get his e-book to learn the science of a car battery.
The Battery Reconditioning guide is actually written for someone who wants to start a reconditioning business. According to Kevin, that niche business is growing fast and is very lucrative.
To break it down, the manual has 2 key sections. The first section focuses the process of reconditioning [tag-tec]nickel-based batteries[/tag-tec]. The second section focuses on reconditioning lead acid batteries.
I find it refreshing when Kevin tried to explain all the technical jargons for a lay person to understanding. There are a few key terms you have to know though such as ohms, ampere, voltage, resistance etc.
What caught my attention is the simple procedures to bring a dead car battery to life. The main culprit that weakens a lead acid battery is sulfation.
In simple terms, sulfation is the process when a car battery loses its ability to hold a charge after it is kept in a discharged state for a long time due to the crystallization of lead sulfate.
We have to get rid of the sulfate crystal first to start the reconditioning process. There are some tools you will need for the process and Kevin has included a list in his e-book.
Since the manual is offer through Clickbank, as usual, the buyer is covered by their 60 days money back guarantee.
If you don’t find the information useful, just return it. To be honest, I learn a lot from the guide and it is only fair for Kevin to keep the money he earned. If you are looking for ways to recondition a dead car battery, check out Kevin Dixon Battery Reconditioning guide.
