Checking the voltage of used batteries with a multimeter
In my previous post, I showed you a video of how a man managed to get hold of 1000 Ah worth of battery for only $40.
If you have not seen the video, click on the link below to watch it right now.
How to buy 1000 Ah used deep cycle batteries for dirt cheap?
How do you know if the used deep cycle batteries you’ve purchased can be reconditioned to working service condition?
The only option is to do a voltage test on the batteries with a multimeter and then do a discharge load test.
As you can see in the video above, each used deep cycle batteries are charged up and then tested with a multimeter to check its voltage output.
Next, the battery is run through a load test to map out its voltage discharge curve.
The discharge curve will show you if the battery has a weak cell or whether it has sulfation in the cell.
DIY Home Battery Bank
When you are setting up a home renewable energy system such as solar or wind power, one of your biggest expenses would be on the batteries.
The number of battery needed will depend on your power requirement.
If you are planning to plug-in a lot of electrical equipment to the system, obviously you will need a large battery bank.
What type of battery should you use to store all the energy generated by the solar panels or wind turbine?
It is recommended for you to use deep cycle battery.
Deep cycle battery can hold a lot of power and yet it will release the energy over a longer time frame.
Unlike car batteries that release large amount of energy for a very short time in order to crank the engine, deep cycle battery tends to release a steady flow of electricity.
The deep cycle battery can also be discharged to a deeper level hence it is perfect for home solar power system.
Getting The Best Out Of Your Investment
Most deep cycle batteries are quite expensive. To save cost, it is best you course for used dead deep cycle battery and then reconditioning them into good service state.
Do you want to know more on reviving dead or weak batteries?
If you do, check out the EZ Battery Reconditioning program.
In the program, you will learn how to:
- Get old or “dead” golf cart batteries, industrial or L16 batteries
- Recondition them back to 100% of their working condition
- Use those “like-new” batteries instead of buying new overpriced batteries to save a lot of money
The guide will also show you how to recondition many other types of old, dead batteries back to 100% of their working condition again (so they’re just like new), including:
- Car batteries
- Laptop batteries
- Cell Phone batteries
- Marine batteries
- PLUS MANY MORE!
So if you’re ready to learn how to recondition all types of batteries…
