Some people are now looking into battery reconditioning as a good way to earn some extra cash. If you are one of these people, then you may want to start to learn how to make your personal lead acid battery desulfator, which is a necessary device for battery reconditioning. As long as you have the right materials on hand, a lead acid battery reconditioning DIY project can be very easy to undertake. Here%27s how:

Have A Work Area Ready

In choosing a work area, bear in mind that working with batteries may pose health hazards and other risks. You should therefore choose an open area or at least a well-ventilated room in which to make your battery desulfator. You should also keep your worktable free from clutter aand make sure that batteries and all other materials are kept away from flammable substances.

Keep All Materials At Hand

For aDIY battery desulfator DIY project, you will need a small can, such as an Altoid%27s; a double-adhesive tape; a piece of perforated board, some adhesive copper foil, two resistors, pots, and switches; one LED and one FET; nylon bolt and glue. Most of these materials can be found around the house or in your junk box. The rest can be bought at very low prices at a local hardware or electronics store.

Start Going DIY

Start the project by taking out the perforated board and cutting a piece that is just big enough to fit into the inner part of the can. After that, attach a strip of the copper foil to the board%27s edge to serve as ground bus. Arrange the resistors, pots, switches, LED, and FET onto the board as shown in your DIY diagram and then glue them into place. Cut out a cardboard piece and then insert it into the can, around the perf-board for insulation purposes.

Now, you need to drill all the necessary holes for your desulfator. First, drill a hole right onto the left for the output wires. After drilling the hole, attach a rubber grommet to keep the said output wires from directly touching the can. Then, drill three holes for ventilation on the right side and one hole on top of the can%27s lid. The hole drilled on the lid will allow you to view the LED as the desulfator is being used.

You are now ready for the final step, which is soldering the desulfator wires. Be sure to choose flexible wires that are relatively thick. Insert the wires to pass through the left hole (the one with the grommet) and then solder the wires to the capacitors. You may then connect the lead wires to the battery which you have choose to recondition.

With all the right materials and a good battery desulfator schematic, your lead acid battery reconditioning DIY project will surely be a breeze. Now you can start earning extra income in the comforts of your own home.

Reconditioning batteries can save you thousands of dollars. I actually recondition batteries as a side business (and it’s quite profitable). If you would like to learn how to recondition batteries check out:
