It is surprising just how easy it is to recondition a battery, with a little trade knowledge. Nowadays, pretty much anyone can teach themselves battery reconditioning with the teaching of a well written and comprehensive guide. These are now only $50 to $60 on the internet. The concepts are reasonably elementary and the equipment needed costs well under $200 if taken seriously, even less for simple use around the home and on one’s own vehicle.

Normally after three or four reconditions, you could say you were quite proficient. Of course, there is also plenty of money to be made mending seemingly dead batteries. That is a trend which can only rise as more equipment becomes portable and vehicles rely more on electricity for motive power. As a battery matures and has been recharged numerous times, it loses its capacity which then needs to be corrected. Frequently this is only possible to a certain level or even not at all. Quick testing and fast rejuvenation are the keys.

It is quite easy to make good money fixing batteries. It lends itself excellently to profitable part-time work which can be grown into an established business, if desired. Due to the very low investment required to start up, the real value comes from the expertise. That is not difficult with a recommended trade manual, normally available as an e-book. The demand for battery reconditioning will only grow as will the awareness that batteries can be brought back to life.

The essential equipment needed for effective battery repair are a computer battery analyzer, a smart charger and a hydrometer for lead acid batteries. That’s all.
