Default So would putting bleach in a battery kill it?

I'm thinking yes, since bleach is a base and the battery needs acid...if you dumped out the acid and stuck bleach in there, it should fail a load test right?

Think it would explode if you tried to charge it with bleach in it?

Damn wal-mart won't warranty this battery because when you charge it and load test it right away, it passes. But if you let it sit over night, it won't hardly crank the motor. There is a shorted cell but it's not bad enough to fail a load test and the dip shits at wal-mart can't warranty it unless their stupid machine says it's bad.

f-ers

Did you tell the dipshits to load test it twice in a row to get rid of the surface charge?? Assuming they load test it a min after charging it...

You could just dump all the acid out and put h20 back in it, but I would also think bleach would neutralize the acid - baking soda would too, but it may turn the water in the cells white (not a big deal if you dump and refill though)

I agree with the above, either the bleach of the baking soda should in theory neutralize the acid......


i like the shorting it out idea too......

It will load test fine twice in a row...they use that damn machine and it does do a 2 stage load test. It just drops down over night. Now it doesn't go all the way dead overnight, just makes it crank real slow. Not what I want in a boat when I am 15 miles out on Lake Michigan.

how about drain it completely and drop it in your freezer overnight. I have batteries die all the time that lose their charge over a cold winter's night.

One to another make sure you defrost the battery before you take it in.

If you would use that yooper brain I am sure you can get one of your students to tell you how to do it... they're yoopers they were born with bad ideas.

On a side note I remember the best way to kill a battery is to hold it upside down and then touch the terminals to the frame of a vehicle:tonka: it killed mine instantly!

You can try using it as a welder with some battery cables and a rod.

You can hook up a light to it and leave it on for a couple days then drop the battery on the ground to really mash the cells.

You can pee in the cells so that even if they open it to look it smells like urine.

You can try to see how many winches/starters it will simultaneously power before it gets hot?
