Ecorecon batteries


Recommended Posts

Some info found:


Reconditioned car batteries for sale can be a viable option if you need a battery for a low price. Many people who have used batteries and get a new one then need to find a car battery recycling option. One of their options is to sell their battery to an auto shop, which will then produce a refurbished car battery. Here are a couple of things to know about these used batteries.

Long Lasting?

Many people believe that since the batteries have been recharged that they will then last as long as a new car battery. This is not true, because batteries can only be charged so many times. After it hits a certain mark, you will lose power.

Memory Effect

The memory effect is a phenomenon that occurs with reconditioned batteries. As the battery loses power over time, it will only be able to charge to a certain point. The battery then remembers this point, and won't charge past it. This can happen pretty soon after you buy the battery, so be aware of this.

Is It Worth It?

Car batteries are very expensive. It is what makes hybrid cars much more expensive than their non-hybrid counterparts. Since car batteries are expensive, buying a reconditioned battery may be a better option for you depending on your financial state. However, it should not be thought of as a permanent option, but more of a stopgap solution until you can afford a new battery. If you only plan on using the battery for a year or two, you should be in the clear.


What you Guys think of recon Solar Batteries?

So I went to visit the guy at ecorecon and he tells a very interesting story. He does actually chemically clean, renew and recon the batteries to be as good as new. Complete clean of all lead plates inside battery. Using patented solvents. Complete replacement of electrolyte with new, being liquid or gel.

Fully tested over 7 days with charge discharge monitoring to see performance of the battery and warranty of 18 months given.

He has many happy customers over the last few years that are happily using their recon batteries for all sorts of uses, from car, deep cycle to solar.


And just to show prices the 170Ah Northstar solar batteries are going for around R1500, plus you can get a discount if you bring in old batteries but only compulsory for "car" batteries.

I would not have been so comfortable with this batteries for the long run... 

I have limited knowledge about batteries at this stage but inside a battery the is a lot of eletron exchange happening being electric current flowing, I'm just wondering if the lead plates will still have the same composition on a secondhand battery in term of free electrons etc... 

Haven't read up about it but to simply clean the lead plates you are still using the old lead plates...


Maybe someone else with more theoretical battery knowledge can comment on the above statement??
