thoughts on used/abused batteries

[based on this reddit post]

Sometimes we get batteries for free or cheap. Sometimes we damage the batteries we already own. While fresh and healthy batteries are best, they are relatively $$$. Here are some thoughts on getting value out of compromised batteries:

  • raise the Vabs setpoint to the max allowed by the battery manufacturer
  • max the Absorption duration if possible, and
  • run the living snot out of them. Run them below 50% if needed. It's one of those “your girlfriend is already pregnant” scenarios. :-)
