RE-ACTIVATION OF DETERIORATED POCKET - TYPE ALKALINE STORAGE BATTERIES

After prolonged service, pocket-type alkaline storage batteries deteriorate so that it is impossible to restore their capacity by overcharging. For such batteries, a new activation process had been developed, based on reversing the polarity during from 15 to 30 hours/with current at the 5-hour rate and then recharging the battery completely at the same rate.
