Start a Battery Reconditioning Business

New technology brings new business opportunities. And one of these hot new businesses is easy to start, eco-friendly, and has high-income potential. What is it? A battery reconditioning business. The battery reconditioning business is becoming more in demand as consumers become increasing cost- and eco-conscious. The typical new car battery averages around $70. But you can sell a reconditioned battery for as little as $35, saving your customers as much as 50% - and keeping another battery from winding up in a landfill. Add to this list 12 volt batteries, 6 volt batteries, marine batteries, golf cart batteries, solar batteries – the list is endless. And so are the potential profits.

Reconditioning is different from rebuilding. Rebuilders remove and repair the bad cells in a battery whereas a reconditioner simply follows a series of steps to test a battery to determine if it is rebuildable to begin with. If the tests prove positive for reconditioning, the reconditioner then moves ahead to the next step by adding certain mixtures of chemicals designed to assist in the dissolving of the built up acid crystals on the lead plates. Once the crystals are dissolved through a combination of chemical additives, and the normal recharging process the batteries are ready, after a rigorous load test, to go back into service. Don’t be mistaken – this can be hard and dirty work. But if you are not the type to sit at a desk or in an office all day, this may be just the business for you. The basic skills to run your own battery business consist of learning how to recondition rechargeable batteries, how to rejuvenate dead batteries, how to measure a battery’s charge capacity, how to revert a reversed cell, and understanding why batteries need to be reconditioned. These are all very simple concepts to learn and for just a few hundred dollars you can quickly have your own battery reconditioning business up and running.
