A battery tender is a device that optimizes the life of your car or motorcycle battery. It does this by charging it when it senses that the charge has dropped below optimum levels, and then maintaining it at optimum level during idle periods. But can a battery tender charge a dead battery?
It’s true that a drained battery won’t charge if you try to give it power from an empty cell. The polarity sensor inside the charger lets out just enough voltage (2 volts) in order for your gadget or phone screen not turn on by mistake because of how sensitive they are when detecting whether something is positive or negative facing up at them and would result with damage both ways!
Then, can a completely dead battery be recharged?
A dead car battery can be restored to full charge by gently heating the plates inside of it with a soldering iron. The solution is made from water and baking soda which releases oxygen when heated, this causes acid Rainer cells contain an 1800 volt positive electrode (anode) connected through wires or contacts that make them capable enough for recharging zinc-based batteries such as those found in cars, trucks etc..
The metal within these types may rust if not charged up occasionally so you’ll need something like an old propane torch welder’s tip because they are really just large versions H2Ofire welding rods specially designed.
Secondly, how do I know if my battery tender is charging? When you remove the AC power from a fully charged Battery Tender Plus, its green light goes out and it has no effect on your battery.

How do you bring old batteries back to life?
A favorite new idea is the USB-powered jump starter. There are some on the market that can crank up 7,000 watts of power to start an engine.
A battery bank with a solar panel will also increase its life span. You’ll then be able to recharge your phone or iPad for free with renewable energy! Plus you won’t have to use old batteries as often.
How do I know if my battery tender is charging?
To check if you battery tender is working, remove the AC power and notice if the green light goes out. If it does, then your battery tender is working correctly.

When you remove the AC power from a fully charged Battery Tender Plus, its green light goes out and it has no effect on your battery?
This means that the battery tender is performing its function. It simultaneously charges your battery and also monitors it. When the battery reaches a full charge, the green light will turn off to signify that it has “finished” charging, as too much charging can be detrimental for some batteries. There are 4 modes of operation on Battery Tender chargers: Bulk Charge Mode, Absorption Mode, Float Mode and Analyze Mode.
