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.
