Not just that, unless the damage on them is mild, you will loose significant amp-hr capacity. All the stuff that gets washed out is the lead (in the form of lead-sulfate) from the plates. Between the labor and cost of the acid, etc, you are better off imo just getting a new battery.712edf said:This was discussed in depth on one of the power wagon sites a few years back. Yes batteries can be rejuvenated, but it involves use of certain chemicals that you won't find on sale at Walmart & I think a variable voltage charger. In the end most agreed it just wasn't feasible & somewhat dangerous.
I heard they got bought out OR that Deka stopped using them. Can't remember.PowerWagonPete said:
Oh heck no! I don't have that kind of time.SuperBurban said:here is one method.
I have often thought about trying to clean the lead plates, and put in new acid, just never had the ambition to give it a shot.
If there was a simple way to make a battery like new, all the junkyards would be doing it.
