Let us know how that works. It sounds benign compared to trick below.
My uncle, a licenced mechanic and a farmer, used to use a trick to try and revive sulfated batteries on farm eqiuptment to last for a few more weeks until the season was over.
It sounds dangerous, I never witnessed him doing it, and I don`t recommend it, but he claimed it often worked, and got a few more weeks or months use from the battery.
He removed the cell caps and covered the battery with a wet towel to capture escaping off gassing hydrogen and oxygen vapors.
He then clamped a heavy steel bar across both terminals. The bar would quickly get red hot as the electrolyte bubbled vigorously.
He never had a battery blow up, or was injured while doing this, but I would be leery of trying it myself.
Any other rednecks out there ever try anything like this?
