Did this video help you?

Brian Dixon: My battery died yesterday and I dont have a charger. Can I do this and just jump the car and drive it for a few hours? Will this hurt anything or blow up?

HDXFH: ha whoops 24 not 04 lol it's a code of some sort anyway!!

HDXFH: date above negative terminal is 21/7/04! That battery has done well!!

William Kiene: Another trick to bring back a battery is to discharge it completely and then charge it up backwards, Then discharge it completely and recharge it the correct way, This will soften the plates.

Boodieman72: Its probably not acid leaking out its probably water. Use a proper desulfator not Epsom salt. A proper desulfator will put the sulfate back into the electrolyte where Epsom salt does not.

Norman Bates: The battery was overheating because it was seriously low on fluid. That's why it was "spitting" out of the vents.

I Wesley: the whole "dont set a battery on concrete" thing is an OLD wives tale nearly 100 years old from when batteries were made of wood casings its amazing what kind of superstitions hang about when it something that people dont understand.....

gladeye2: That was great, Also thanks for the updates in the description

bam6972: yea I think I just had it way to full, because it no longer leaks up top. I still have it and starts the car every time. but yea good idea.

bam6972: no that's a different form of salt..

Tony c: Do you think it will work on a 31a battery?

VeggiePower303: The problem is that even if you charge it up to 12.7 and it is holding the voltage there, that doesn't mean the capacity has been restored. Meaning you may have enough for one start but not for two or three or more. I am trying to restore my RV deepcycle batteries. I will try what you did and test for capacity in the end. I think it will require several complete discharge and charge cycles. May also help if the batteries are in a warm place. Thanks for the video, see mines! Cheers!

John Stevens: Had 2 12 volt 1000 ca batteries in my motor home going out "bad".. Put a teaspoon in each cylinder, charged for 20 hrs and 6 months later I still have more power than I know what to do with. Also simply put same amount into front battery. Only every day running charge. Epson Salt works!

bam6972: if its lead acid then it should. what do you have to lose? but that's my opinion

guily6669: What about removing the acid, clean the interior with a lot of epsom salt, remove everything and then fill up the battery again with clean sulfuric acid? Will that work? And how many times can you do that with a battery until the metal inside is really useless as a battery??

mw10259: THIS GUY SOUNDS LIKE NICOLAS CAGE,,,LOL

bam6972: well I should have had them off when charging. but the reason they were melted when I first took it off was because it had ran almost dry of acid and overcharged at one point and got hot. battery still works and cranks fine still if hooked up to a battery tender in the winter.

VeggiePower303: Man if you can save that battery, you can save any battery. Is it still working?

Terry Klinder: you should try pulling the battery cap off before charging, plus you can check the state of the empty battery cells. old timers say put it on wood instead of bare concrete, they say it can drain a battery.

descargaelbano: Mixed with John Goodman

David Correira: can you use tabel salt?

VeggiePower303: Hey you're spilling battery acid all over my screen here. LOL

bam6972: yea i know what you mean by the capacity. this battery was really abused. had hardly and acid/water covering the plates when i first got it. since the materials were so cheap only cost me like 3 bucks. i thought i would give it a try.

DailyObserver: Hey Amigo. Some experts recommend keeping the caps off whilst charging. Then you wouldn't have all that melting.

bam6972: yea i have it plugged into my float charger everytime its not in use. i can go about my day and start it up multiple times without haveing to jump it.

bam6972: that's why you don't replace the acid with new. it will eat it up in no time.

fpaladin: i suspect the burnt ends on the caps was causing the battery to leak. try re-forming the bottom of the caps with a 2-part epoxy or some electrical tape to re-establish a tight seal around each opening; or maybe jerry-rig some rubber gaskets as washers, just make sure the vent gap is not plugged. good luck.
