electronics for improved battery performance lead that were sulfated with time and / or misuseMounting published in Elektor in 2001.
Absolutely unthinkable just a little, it enables regenerative breathe new life to old lead batteries totally or partially sulfated. In addition, the project occupies as much new batteries by giving them a kind of preparation.
A recent scientific publication finds that 80% of lead-acid batteries fail after some time because of sulfation. It occurs with age, due to poorly programmed charging / discharging cycles or because of too long storage when they are insufficiently charged. This is what happens frequently on the motorcycle or sports car forced to "hibernate" a good part of the year.
A first solution approach, Elektor had already provided for several years with a preventive project to maintain the condition of batteries for a long period of inactivity. today we return with a new concept.
