How to Replace NiFe Electrolyte & Clean-n-Service Battery Cells

Any NiFe Battery that is Not holding Charge to 1.2V, you need to First;

  1. Do a Continuity Test to see if any of the Terminal Plates are Shorting !
  2. CLEANING: Remove and Tip out all the Electrolyte into a Non Corrosive Bucket/container, Keep OUT of the Way of CHILDREN & ANIMALS & let settle with a Cover that breaths.
    • We have been told you can Fine Filter the Electrolyte down to 2 micron & re-use, we have never done it ourself.
  3. Get the Garden Hose and fast Flush & Fill with as much Pressure into above the Cell Plates.
  4. Put all Cell fill Plugs Bungs on, so theirs no Leakage, Rocking or Shaking the Cells should dislodge any loose Debris around the Plates, if a small Cell you could Shake it.
  5. Tip the Flushed Contents into a Large Plastic Garbage bin or Non corrosive Container.
  6. If any loose Debris comes out, keep Filling Flush the Battery until Clear water comes out.
  7. If/When there is No silt or residue, do a Continuity Test to see if any of the Terminal Plates are Shorting!
  8. RESTORING: If OK, Mix a New batch of Electrolyte, & it should work again for 7~15years if Not Over Discharged or Distilled Water is not used to Maintain Liquid Height.

If You are finding Your Electrolyte in Not Lasting for 5+ Years, you May be Consuming more than 80% of the kWh Storage Energy, as this can Kill the Electrolyte Quickly !

Solution is simple, Purchase more Energy Storage that is Compatible.

As Much as we like NiFe and LiFePO4 Battery Technology, Nothing comes close to Super Capacitor (SC) Modules & Hydrogen Energy Storage !
