Uh-Oh Battery Trouble!

Sooner or later we all have to deal with a dead or dying battery. Battery trouble is a pain, an inconvenience and sometimes a very expensive problem.

Really, the whole process is pretty easy and inexpensive. So let’s look at what’s involved.

Way Down Inside

“Lead” Zeppelin

First all lead-acid batteries generate electricity by using lead plates submerged in sulfuric acid and the chemical reaction that occurs produces electricity. This is nothing new to you, I’m sure. But here’s where it gets interesting, because along with electricity, your battery also produces lead sulfate. When a battery is new this gets converted back to lead and sulfuric acid. But as a battery ages the lead sulfate becomes crystalline and begins to form deposits on the lead plates.

Battery Sulfation – Public Enemy #1

Since lead sulfate doesn’t conduct electricity it reduces your battery’s capacity. It no longer has the same power or charges as well. This is called sulfation or sulfating and it is the cause of most battery failure. If you’ve ever messed with a weak battery and put it on a charger you know after a while it takes longer to charge and won’t hold a charge as long. If done enough times, it eventually won’t charge at all. At this point even reconditioning won’t save it.

Resurrecting The Dead

The good news is that sulfation can be reversed. A specialized battery charger called a battery desulfator is used. The crystalline lead sulfate is turned back into lead and sulfuric acid, and the now clean lead plates will now charge again just like a new battery.

Before you throw that battery away, why not find out more about how to recondition batteries and build your own battery desulfator? It can save you money on battery replacements and can even earn you money if you want to start a battery reconditioning business.
