Subject:Can an old battery be brought back to life? Date:Sun Oct 9 18:28:52 2011
This is the one that it had after Mutt restored it about six years ago. After sitting on a 6v battery tender for about a year, it was dead. When we got it started the other day off a big battery charger, we moved it to the garage door and continued. During the move, someone turned off the power strip that the charger had been running off, but the headlight lit for a few seconds before the battery died. There's life in it!!!
I removed the it a few minutes ago. No water, as expected. Before doing anything, it measured 1.6v. After putting distilled water in it, I got 1.5v. It's on the 1.5A 6v battery tender now.
Can this battery be brought back to life, or should I start looking for a new replacement?
