Title: Patented charging method for repeated recharging disposable batteries
The battery consumption is increasing worldwide on because batteries have a higher cell battery over-voltage and low self-discharge. Through analysis of the electrochemical processes a new charging method for alkaline batteries has been developed that works so well that up to 90% of the maximum capacity can be repeatedly downloaded. To keep the recharging of a conflicting parasitic electrochemical side reactions as low as possible, the first time the temperature is controlled during load. Is started at low temperature, which is then increased towards the end of the charging process. A suitable for laymen, great value during the cooling phase has been developed into a refrigerator available everywhere arranged charger, patented and produced in small series.
