The Do It Yourself World: Well, I have messed up with my batteries a couple times through the years.
As long as the plates are not physically damaged or broken, warped, then
the batteries can normally be restored.
The Do It Yourself World: @shartne The magnets cause a small pulse in a coil, which turn on a
transistor. This allows a battery to send a pulse of energy through a
second coil, repelling the magnet, which spins the wheel. The weak battery
to restore receives a pulse of radiant energy when the magnetic field
around the power coil collapses. In school this is normally called back
EMF. But in this circuit there is something else going on here. The radiant
restores the battery. For details see yahoo groups bedini monopole 3
aerofart: Bedini whackery . . .
The Do It Yourself World: Yes, it is normal. The voltage under charge will be higher. But be sure to
cycle it with a charge, the rest a bit, then discharge some, rest a bit,
then repeat until the battery is restored. It will take a few cycles at
least, to get it in shape again. But if it was new, it should recover.
Motty Ruttner: what will cause the plates to brake?
Lud Wig: @techman2015 yeah thats great, would be willing to give me a schematic on
how to build one, my email addy is testo AT cableone (dot) net......thanks
LeonRFpoa: what a bunch of idiots here trying to discredit the technology...sounds
like paid bloggers to me.
The Do It Yourself World: @Davetech23 Somehow the magnets passing the coil produce a more efficient
radiant charging cycle. And it is very hard to get one of these to run in
solid state mode. A "simpler" transistor switching circuit is way too hard
to design and doesnt put out as much of a charge. Besides, this thing cost
me much less than a single battery would have off the shelf, and I have
dozens of restored batteries for free now.
The Do It Yourself World: It takes a while, depending on the size of the Bedini motor you build. A
bigger one will restore batteries faster. You can connect all the batteries
together in parallel to restore them on the Bedini all at one time tho. The
will also need to be cycled a few times on the Bedini. Charge, drain
slowly, charge, drain slowly again and again until they are fully restored.
Takes a few days, but well worth it.
Mussawarx: Can you please tell me what should be the frequency of the oscillator (or
The Do It Yourself World: This is a self regulating motor. It varies its speed based on battery size
and impedance. But I can tell you that the shorter the pulse and the faster
frequency, the better the performance.
The Do It Yourself World: Enough people have asked. I will do it soon. I am gathering some parts. I
will make one with scrap parts to show it can easily be done. And I dont
have the materials to make a new one either.
The Do It Yourself World: Call it what you want. I dont care. It works for me. I go to the scrap yard
and buy deep cycle batteries for scrap prices and then restore them to use
in my solar powered home. Have you built one to try it? If not, dont knock
it till you have tried it.
The Do It Yourself World: over charging will warp and damage the plates. And just plain normal use
without a Bedini charger will cause tiny bits to fall off with time.
The Do It Yourself World: I have been using old, discarded batteries that I restored in my electric
mountain bike for a couple years now. Work fine. They were about 0.5 volts
each when I got them. Now they hold enough charge for about 15 miles of
biking, which is equal to the original batteries that came with the bike.
scottmerton: You spent 3 weeks trying to recondition a 10 year old car battery? You must
have way too much time on your hands.
The Do It Yourself World: @scottmerton Actually, the machine does all the work. I just check the
voltage from time to time. I sort of have a feel for how long a certain
sized battery will need to charge, so I just check the voltage once or
twice a day while its restoring. Just imagine though if we all used these
things and never had to replace our batteries.
Riskteven: You can build a device to test the battery to check if it really holds the
charge after, check the video with ID 8xX2SVcItOA
Lud Wig: But how long will the restoration last. Chemical restoration may improve or
regain the SG of a battery, but is short lived...........
valveman12: I think it would be easier and faster to build a pulser circuit.
William Todd: Thank you. Look forward to the video. I looked up the DIY link and seems
pretty simple. Now to get the time to go run around for parts. I think this
will be extremely useful for my riding mower batteries.
web1bastler: @EastcoastTinker u need a certifyed charger for li ion cuz they cant
sulfate u need a charger with a jogging function
dellam04: your product is expensive as hell... you must be out of your mind... i can
get one like that about 1/4 of the price...
The Do It Yourself World: @EastcoastTinker If the neon is lit, you are slowly destroying the
transistor. Shut if off immediately! If you want to charge a battery that
is too low for the SSG to charge, put a like sized and type of battery in
parallel with the dead one for a bit to bring up the voltage enough so the
SSG can run with the dead battery alone. For example, if you have a spare
lithium battery with the same specs, put it in parallel with the low
battery for a few hours. But you also may have a dead cell.
The Do It Yourself World: Hold your mouse over them and they pop up larger. Then right click and save
as, to your computer.
David Moody: What size are the magnets?
shartne: I don't understand how this works exactly. I know you have magnets on the
wheel. But what is running it, the battery? How does this desulfate the
battery? Do the magnets cause a pulse? Is there a charger involved?
p0weraid: I find this amazing will have to try this, looked in to the "pro" chargers
but there very pricey
The Do It Yourself World: Yeah, I hear they work to some extent. But the Bedini ones can be made from
scrap parts for free. And they work very well.
Davetech23: All that mechanical, revolving wheel just to produce pulses to trigger a
transistor? Why? Why not a much simpler, less expensive transistor
The Do It Yourself World: @dellam04 I made it from scrap. FREE.
The Do It Yourself World: @ElRipper100 I have some restored batteries in heavy use now for three
years. A pair that I found discarded in a dump, were below .5 volts, now
run my electric bike very well. And the original inventor, Bedini, has been
using the same set of batteries for over 15 years. I guess they could run
SangoProductions21: thanks. too bad the diagrams are so small. I'll try and use it anyway.
Mussawarx: Thanx. But there should be a range limit. I have seen some other diagrams
but all they confuse about frequency, that's why I have asked you about
this. I mean should it be 1KHz, 10KHz, 40KHz, 100KHz or even above it?
The Do It Yourself World: Go to thediyworld (dot) com and then this page: ssg-battery-restorer.php If
you have problems or questions, join thediyworld forum and I would be happy
SangoProductions21: where can i find instructions for how to build this?
The Do It Yourself World: 1 inch x 2 inch ceramic from Radio Shack
rg10969: I am trying to restore my motorcycle battery. It was basically new last
year but I let it run down and sit for a year. I charged it up using my 2
amp charger. It will read 12.8 volts. But after resting it goes back to
10.5 volts. I built a bedini from ideas I got from you and others. It is
charging with the bedini but it shows 16 volts while being charged by the
bedini. Is this normal for a heavily sulfated battery. Also do you think
plates are shorted because it rest at 10.5 volts
The Do It Yourself World: I am showing a free, diy device. Doesn't get cheaper than that. John
Bedini, the original inventor has shown the world how to make these FREE.
p0weraid: How many time's can you "restore" a battery?
EastcoastTinker: question, I'm trying to restore a lap top lith ion. Battery shows 11.1 with
is what it should. When i drive a load it drops to about 1 volt. I'm
charging it with my ssg now. The thing is the neon is lit. I know that
means the battery isn't or cann't absorb the voltage spikes. What I want to
know is, do I let it run this way. Is it doing some good. Will the neon
turn off if and when the battery recovers?
TheL337trance: The light that you are adjusting (not the neon light)....can you explain
where you are hooking that up to? I'm confident enough to build this, but
not sure how to wire that light up. Thank you.
