Great, thank you very much. I'll give it a go. Will I be able to see the before and after % with any decent OBD2 reader or do I need a specific type? I've got access to a pretty decent one.You can do the procedure pretty much any time on our old Nimh packs.
But the weaker or more lackluster your pack is the greater improvement you will likely see.
If Nimh then Nothing, it's sleeping.I've had a spare battery sitting on a shelf for 3-4 years. what should I do with it to keep it healthy?
I didn't want to derail this thread is all.All general questions on the forum please.
If Nimh then Nothing, it's sleeping.
Just revive it (wake it up) just prior to fitting with the full cycling procedure in this thread. (Charge/Discharge/Charge)
If you mean how quickly will the useable % capacity go back down again?After using this method, is the rate of degredation the same as for a new battery?
Thanks and yes, that’s what I meant. You confirmed what I expected: degradation (after reconditioning) will occur quicker if the battery is old or is “dodgy”.If you mean how quickly will the useable % capacity go back down again?
It depends on your usage/storage pattern and the actual cell health.
If your pack has a few dodgy cells or is just generally worn out then it will go back down quicker than if not.
The reconditioning process is repeatable, so when performance falls off or useable capacity % drops down again it can be repeated.
Of course the benefits will become progressively shorter lived as the pack reaches the end of it's useful life or a cell really dies.
The process is analogous to the 50 year old CRT TV tube rejuvenation days when they used to boost old TV tubes to make the picture brighter for a while.
