Yes, there is something although I can't remember at the mo. It removes the salts somehow. I believe that of a battery is fecked then there is no going back, you can make them seem better for a while until it gets cold and then leaves you in the lurch. We've had batteries in the past that have a shorted cell or something like that and will be fine for a week and then dead as a door nail.Any way of washing the internal plated prevent dead cells
Could imagine trying to set up a business doing that in the uk? It'd be a clipboard monkeys' wet dream!
Those days are long gone, but with wages and business expenses now could you really strip and rebuild a battery for the cost of a new one.
I don't disagree that we should look at recycling/reusing etc. Trouble is batteries like many other things are made as cheap as they can be and so aren't easy to take apart. Years back they would be repaired but relatively speaking were probably dearer so repair would be a cost effective optionI wasn't advocating it being done in those working conditions. Just thinking along the Reduce>Reuse>Recycle principal.
