If your looking for a HIGHLY efficient (6VDC 2.5A / 6VAC 3.0A) power supply or 6V lead acid battery charger, then look no further. This power supply/charger is made using a 120V (MOT) microwave oven transformer, by performing the modifications shown in this video. 120V transformer current at idle(NO LOAD) only draws 30mA, and using a full 2.5A load, 200mA. NO heating issues of the core whatsoever. As usual, always be very careful when working with 120VAC/240VAC projects!

In this lesson we’ll learn about different lead acid battery charging methods. We’ll discuss single stage constant current charging, trickle charging, multi-stage constant current charging, constant voltage charging, the modified constant voltage or fast charging method, float voltage, gassing voltage, charge efficiency, and the equalization process.

Learning how to recondition battery is the solution to restore old batteries to new again. This is an ideal solution for people who often discard batteries when they stop functioning after a period of time and purchasing new ones again and again. Just imagine the amount of money everyone can save by reconditioning these old batteries.
There is a common misconception among many people in regards to recharging and reconditioning for being identical. The fact is that recharging a battery only gives charge for a period of time, however, battery reconditioning means restoring the battery to its full capacity.
When you learn how to recondition battery, you will eventually come across various methods of approach. Some people may use mechanical tools to reclaim them, and some others will build new devices. Some experts even place their batteries in a freezer through the night and then recharging it. This process takes about 3 full cycles for the battery to start working again. Also, some chargers come along with the option of reconditioning and they do work extremely well with fridge pre-conditioned batteries.
There are many companies out there that offer reconditioning services, however, homeowners can do it themselves by buying a reconditioner. In fact, some batteries do not require a special reconditioner and can be easily reconditioned by draining the battery completely with the help of a battery powered device or a resistive circuit that discharges the battery safely and then charging it as per normal.
All types of batteries, including the latest car batteries can be reconditioned, but if the reconditioning process is done by the users, it has to be handled with extreme care as they do contain dangerous acids. Before learning how to recondition battery, it is essential to understand the various battery types and know exactly how it should be appropriately handled.
