rockethead555: three words Vicks Cough Drops . . good video i have learned some stuff ,
John Baxter: This is very interesting but watched the whole series of videos and not
sure this 'Epsom salt' method works. One problem is that you're not
actually flushing the cells, your just adding Epsom salt. I'm thinking that
you need a syringe type of thing to drain the cells and refill them to
clean out the gunk floating in the electrolyte. I can understand not
turning the battery upside down to drain it as that could stir up a lot of
lead and other metals that could lead to further unnecessary damage.
John Baxter: On that Alum issue, you can't add alum to sulfuric acid typical of a car
battery. It will react violently. Converting a battery to alum requires
completely flushing the battery using diluted sodium bicarbonate to
neutralize the battery acid and is very dangerous,.
Anthony Hope: Nice work. I am also reviving lead acid batteries by just adding distilled
water. Check out my channel. Thanks.
George Wiseman: Good video series. I noticed in your Part 3, when putting powdered Epsom
Salts into the battery, that you only put a bit into the 'shorted' cell. I
think you'd do better to put MORE Epsom Salt in the shorted cell.
Arden Kauss: Ok... This guy is a world class dumb ass....Want to get your battery
working as it should? Take your credit card to NAPA and buy a new battery.
Why waste hours freaking around with something that does'nt work???HMMM?
1951japa: Do u ever drain the Epsom salt from the battery? I noticed you said the
deep cycle battery looked dirty after the salt had been in it for a while
KmanAuto: Bad idea. You risk damaging the battery further.
John Strabismus: Not a trick. It's a method. I'm happy I found your channel, so I've
Anne Thompson: It could just be that the sulphate has built up so thick on the lead plates
that not enough of the lead is exposed to keep that dead cell functioning.
UCHOOZEfreeForever: Thanks Kman :n)
UCHOOZEfreeForever: Compliments are nice, money is better ;o) I'd like to buy one of your
capacitating chargers, I had a look on your site & MWscoots - am I just
being dim? Give me a (broken?) link & I'll come along with dollars. ATB -
Yooch from uCHOOZE.com
zacheisjd: At the end he says that his theory is that is does work, as long as the
battery isn't too damaged already. Good info in this series. At the very
least, you can use them to arc weld if you don't feel like buying a machine
for it xD.
alpinetypee12: I got a battery just like that I use my battery for my sound system in my
Danroxye01: Have you tried taping or knocking on the wider part of a battery while
testing or charging and probably improve reading ? ( be surprise sometime
). I screwed around a lot with the same project battery only to end up to
KmanAuto: Hey, thanks! I appreciate the compliment. I can always use some extra
motivation to keep making videos. I can also always use more ideas as well
for future videos and projects. So any ideas, let me know!
mpltm68: Sorry I was probably a bit of a smartarse with my first few words, but as I
ended it was good to watch the theory and what did/did not work.
mpltm68: freak me dead you should have told me in the first video that it did not
work. I would rather ave sent you the money to buy a new battery. But on
the other and you have helped me as you have demonstrated Epsom salts does
not 'really' work. Just change your title and it is a good myth buster
video on the topic. Regards
KmanAuto: If only it were that easy.
pocketchanged: Have you played with baking soda and alum?? Drain the battery, add 8 ozs of
baking soda & mix w/a gallon of distilled H20, fill and let it sit till the
reaction stops, shake around the battery, drain it, add 8 ozs of alum to a
gallon of distilled H20, charge and check. Maybe the 2 processes can be
blended somehow? (not my idea BTW).
KmanAuto: Harbor Freight . com remove the spaces in the link, as Youtube doesnt allow
drezster: That truly is a very nice tester for the price. I compared the voltage
readings with a Fluke, though, and found that the displayed voltage was off
by around 0,2V. I opened the case and adjusted the trimpot next to the IC.
Counterclockwise raises the voltage and vice-versa. Now It's bang on.
Calibration should be done with a healthy battery, otherwise the voltage
will swing like crazy and you can't get a stable reading.
UCHOOZEfreeForever: This is -the- best series on recovering 12v batteries on YouTube, period. I
know there are some (minor) areas that aren't in it - SLA alarm-type cells
are easy, but also identical, just smaller. Some cheapy methods for
charging too, the detail in this is Great. Very clear, easy to watch,
TONNES of detail, really hands-on LOVE IT. Thanks Kman, Yooch from
meesterp: How much space is there between plates? If there is room to slide some
stiff plastic in between the plates you might get lucky and bump a shorting
bridge around - maybe even loose!
KmanAuto: Awesome. I added link in the description of this video. Let me know of any
customization's you might want. Cheers!
towhida kassim: Hi Kman . hope you recovered from your cold faster than some of the
batteries did from sulfation. Many thanks for that very instructive video,
it was a real pleasure watching it. kkep posting your experiences, many
Luke Den Hartog: HELP! where can i get one of them fancy shmancy meters? i need to
recondition my electric bike batteries, which cant even power a treadmill
motor for 30 minutes
Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
