How to Recondition a Hybrid Batter ?
Hybrid Battery Reconditioning, combines the charging and balancing process, with deep discharging, to reverse the aging process and recondition the battery. By doing so, this process breaks down crystal formations and voltage depressions, which form in the NiMh battery’s modules or cells.
How do you Recondition Hybrid Batteries?
Creating a reliable, reconditioned hybrid battery, is what sets 3RE apart from everyone else. When 3RE takes the old hybrid battery out of your vehicle, we take it back to one of our two reconditioning facilities.
The process begins with load testing the battery and identifying its current overall state of health. The battery is disassembled. We exercise the battery cells on testing equipment. Each module is tested and then grouped with same capacity modules. The remaining electrical and wiring components are checked, reconditioned, and tested to ensure proper operation. The battery connections or “Bus Bars” is cleaned to prevent corrosion. This ensure top performance and long battery life. Finally, we reassemble the complete battery pack.
