Rejuvenate Car Battery

The best way to rejuvenate a car battery is with a high-quality lead-acid battery charger. Alternatively, you can use a battery welder. Although not as effective as a battery charger, a welder will give you a little more time until you can reach an auto parts store.

To rejuvenate your battery, you should first drain it completely and remove all dirt and debris. You can also use distilled water. Distilled water is safe, but make sure the distilled water covers all exposed lead plates. After this, you need to add a small amount of Epsom salt to the distilled water solution.

The water inside your car battery acts as an electrolyte and generates a charge through electrolysis (chemical reaction between positive and negative terminals). Over time, the water in your battery can start to dry out, and it is at this point that it is no longer able to hold a charge. Eventually, you’ll have to replace your battery. In the meantime, you can rejuvenate your car battery using white vinegar. This method is safe and requires no technical knowledge.

Another way to rejuvenate your car battery is to clean its terminals. One of the most common causes for battery replacement is corrosion on the terminals. The best way to check this is by using a spray that comes with an acid indicator. If the spray produces a red foam, then your battery needs rejuvenation.
