When reconditioning Lithium Ion batteries extra care needs to be taken.

Lithium Ion batteries have a so called sleep mode which is active if you drain the battery way too much.

It’s primarily caused by the quality of the phone battery. In this practical guide, I will highlight the main methods to easily and quickly prolong your battery’s lifespan. This may shorten the lifespan and effectiveness of the lithium battery.

To do this, gently wipe the metal contents of the battery and your mobile phone with a suitable cleaning tool. This also improves recharging efficiency and the battery use duration. Under normal room temperature, the kinetic energy is relatively sizeable, however as the battery is maintaining an active/ready state, electric leakage can frequently occur.

However, under low temperature conditions, the lithium coating on the battery’s surface, along with the electrolyte micro-structure and the interface will be significantly altered leading to a temporary inactive state that minimizes electric leakage.

As soon as the battery becomes warm, disconnect the batteries immediately. Place the battery into your phone. Any residual power contained in the battery will be transferred to the bulb until it has been fully exhausted.

Do not try to disassemble the laptop battery or try the DIY methods listed out there. So the fluid level has been slowly dropping in your supposedly maintenance free battery, but you’ve never noticed a loss of power. After corroding a while, the darned bars don’t work, and sometimes even make a spark which blows up the battery!

If the battery will hardly take a charge at all, then it’s “sulfated”; there is an insulating layer of sulfate on the plates. Some people just dump it into the battery (it’s in powder form) but that gives the sulfates a chance to precipitate out of solution and settle in the bottom of the battery. Empty the acid from the battery; I usually turn the battery upside down in a sufficiently large pail or 5-gallon bucket.

Heat will speed up the process, although I wouldn’t get too carried away trying to heat up your batteries! Adding a small amount of EDTA to each cell is supposed to do the battery a world of good over the long run. The electronic desulfator presents a very small load to the battery and really doesn’t have any undesirable effects that I know of. Probably the more that you can run these devices, the better, at least on batteries that are used only occasionally and more likely to develop sulfates.

If you read lower than that you will need to revive it if its higher than that try to just charge it. Now you will need to connect your multimeter to show you how much battery is drawing. Then just leave battery and calculate how long battery should charge.

Now leave your battery for 1h and hook it up on car hadlight or any 12v bulb. Voltage of battery shoudnt drop lower than 12v. I use exclusively the Lithium Iron Phosphate chemistry for my home solar bank, my car engine and also all my portable power sources.

Environmentally safe, safest Lithium chemistry in production, low self discharge and far longer service life. In time, AGM batteries, including OPTIMA® batteries, may fail. Failures are often caused when a starting battery is used in a cycling application, for which a deep-cycle battery is the better choice.

A traditional battery that’s at 10.5 volts or less is seen as defective, having either a short, a bad cell or some other defect. They have the additional capability of doubling as a battery “maintainer” for batteries in storage. After the batteries have been hooked up for about an hour, check to see if the AGM battery is slightly warm or hot to the touch.

Discontinue charging immediately if the battery is hot to the touch. Battery specialists (such as Interstate Batteries and other independent battery distributors) are experts who can help determine if your battery is recoverable or not. Options for recovering an OPTIMA battery that is difficult to recharge.

These batteries are also used in golf carts and ride-on lawn mowers. However, as long as the battery is sound, you can remove the sulphation and revive the battery. This is very important since over filling or not filling it enough can lead to the battery exploding.

To remove sulphate from your battery, you will need to attach it to a battery trickle charge. The very slow charging of the battery will dissolve the sulphate affecting the battery.
