It’s probably something that goes without saying that making batteries last longer is a good thing. With that said, there’s always someone that asks the question when we tell people about reconditioning batteries.
Firstly, what is battery reconditioning? We go into this in a lot more detail elsewhere on the site, but the quick answer is reconditioning is a technique that allows you to take a dead battery and help it to accept charge again. It doesn’t even necessarily have to be a rechargable one to work, but there’s a lot more to it and you can learn more about it here from the EZ Battery Reconditioning experts:
Now, if you can’t see the obvious benefit of these recon techniques, let’s address that first.
Batteries are expensive. Maybe not individually, but think for a second how many you have around the house. What if you could drastically reduce the amount you need to buy to replace them, simply by making them last longer?
For many families, batteries run into hundreds of dollars a year. Of course, that doesn’t just apply in the US, it’s true across Europe, Asia and Africa too.
That brings us to more benefits. You already have the dead battery in your possession. Sometimes you won’t have a spare available, and maybe the store is closed. Maybe they’re out of stock, or maybe you really need them now and haven’t got the time to go out and get more.
Even if you can nip out to get a replacement, how much easier would it be just to use tom’s technique and fix the problem now, without having to pay for replacements. Sounds good, right?
There’s more too – environmentally, batteries aren’t great. Admittedly, recharging and reconditioning aren’t perfect, they all produce emissions and waste in one way or another, but reuse is going to be better.
Batteries contain chemicals, and less than ideal materials like lead that are harmful if the end up in the ground after being thrown away. We all know it’s important to dispose of spent batteries responsibly, but can you say, hand on heart, that you don’t throw them in the trash from time to time? Maybe you are responsible, but many people aren’t.
In the US, we’re lucky enough to have a plentiful supply of fresh batteries in the stores, but that’s not true across the world. In some parts, they’re not only expensive, but also in short supply. It’s yet another reason why knowing how to get more from the cells you’ve got at home is not only important, but beneficial to you, your family, your wallet and the planet.
For the sake of a few dollars, Tom will tell you how to save potentially hundreds of dollars a year and learn a useful skill. Heck, you could even set up your own business refurbishing for others, using valuable skills to supplement your income and maybe even build a full time income.
