The Universal Community Switchboard Project Practical Applications Resource PageDani and Nick McKenny explain the next step in development of the Crystal Battery and the Bedini Motor for reconditioning these batteries on the-one-network.org
A lead acid battery has a series of small lead plates, that are connected inside the battery in just such a way as to give a specific voltage and amperage. For car batteries, they are created to give a high amperage output for a short period of time. A deep cycle battery is designed to give a more even/ regulated output, over a period of time. The main physical difference is the thickness of the lead plates inside of the battery.Simply put, a deep cycle battery has thicker plates than a car battery.
The four component salts are as follows:
Potassium Chloride ( potash)
Magnesium Sulfate ( Epsom salt)
Aluminum Sulfate (Alum)
I ground them into a fine powder and then combined them equally in water until I had almost a pourable paste.Using a power sander, I created a small vibrating table and poured the mix into the CLEAN battery.
NOTE: It is very important to make sure that ALL of the acid is out of the battery. It has to be COMPLETELY clean. Baking soda and water is the best way to neutralize the acid. Do it a bit at a time. Go slow. It is better this way. The better a job you do at every step creates a better end product.
Here is what I have found and had corroborated by others that have helped me with this. When different metals touch each other corrosion happens and a voltage is created, This is referred to as a galvanic reaction. It is similar to the corrosion process but has some distinct differences. The salts all have component metals, for the most part.
The salts, when combined, are creating a voltage, plus the oxidization of the surface of the lead plates is creating an output power. The lead plates are acting like capacitors, in a sense. This, I believe is why the car batteries are degrading over time. The reduced surface area for oxidation combined with the loss of pure lead volume creates the degradation. The loss of volume being the main factor.
The Bedini Motor is the recommended work around. This device is very simple to create. It is proven to recondition batteries. It works with all battery types. Lithium Ion, Lead Acid and Nickel Cadmium. The device uses high voltage/ high frequency to revert the process inside the battery.
For long term usage in a home application, deep cycle batteries are the way to go. Car batteries will work, though. Now I am trying to refine and streamline the entire process, in order to maximize the potential. One of my up and coming projects is to create my own battery. 3D print a case and combine alternating copper/ magnesium plates.
ps: A little side note: we’ve tested this battery in temperatures as cold as -22C, and it works just fine!!!
