    True or false.

    Magnesium sulphate added to boiled distilled water and added to a poor batter is reputed to rejuvenate.

    As I am about to replace 4 poor batters a mere 1 year old this roumer has gained my attention.

    Strangle my bike needs a new battery and so does the car.

    Thats what Im hoping for.

    Its well documented on the internet, its full of it works --dont work ---even you tube has explicit instructions on how to do it correctly.

    A Farmer swears by another 2 years use and has done it all his life --his dad told him about it.

    A professor from Exide was less enthusiastic but said it would lower charging voltage giving the impression of,---but yeah Im gonna wait for piston on this one.

    Well I must say that I am surprised that there really is a lot on this topic on the internet, must say its the first I ever read about this. However

    it seems like it certainly works sometimes.
    I personally just dont fancy the idea of playing around with the acid and the fumes. The other problem is you cant really trust a 'hill billy" battery out in the ocean.

    Just my 2 cents ;)
