Reviving a Dead Battery
The Battery Life Saver electronic device can be used to revive a dead
battery that has accumulated too much sulfate build up or has been allowed
to sit unused for a long period of time.
However, it will not work on a battery that has a shorted or open cell. See
to Test for a Short or Open Cell" page for details on shorted cells and
how to tell if your battery has them.
This procedure works for a car-auto, deep cycle, marine and all other lead
acid battery applications. It will also work with AGM and GEL batteries.
A dead battery is one that will not hold a charge, and in some cases,
they are unable to take a charge.
It can take several days to a couple weeks to
revive a dead battery, depending on how bad the battery is, the size,
and how often you cycle(charge and discharge) the battery with BLS
For a 12 volt battery, you will need the BLS-12/24-B and a good
automotive battery charger, preferably with a rating of 6 to 10 amps.
For batteries that cannot take a charge, it is best to use an old
fashioned battery charger, not one of the newer high tech Smart Battery
Chargers . The newer smart battery chargers will not turn on if the
voltage of the battery is too low. This does not mean that the battery
is completely dead, just that the charger will not turn on. If you do
not have a manual charger available, you can jump start the bad
battery(just like jumpstarting your car battery) to get the battery
voltage high enough for the smart charger to turn on (contact us for
more information on this procedure).
The key to this procedure is to cycle (charge and discharge) the battery
with the BLS attached. The BLS gradually dissolves the sulfate crystals
with every cycle. To Battery Life Saver works from the power of the
battery. You can either let the BLS discharge your battery or add some
type of load(i.e. a light) to help discharge the battery.
Step 1: Connect both the BLS and the charger to the battery,
paying attention to the polarity.
Step 2: Charge the battery with the BLS attached until the
voltage is at least 12 volts or completely charged.
Step 3: Leave the Battery Life Saver connected to the battery
without the battery charger for a period of time(if it is a single 12
volt battery, 20 hours should be enough time to discharge with the BLS).
DO NOT LET THE VOLTAGE GO BELOW 10 VOLTS.
Step 4: When the
battery voltage is between 10 and 10.5 repeat step 2 and 3.
Work back and forth between 2 and 3 until the battery comes back up to
operational condition. If you cycle(charge and discharge) the battery
every day with the BLS connected, the battery should come back sometime
between 3 days and 2 weeks.

battery is in usable condition.
