To make it possible to recover lithium cells from old batteries, you need a straightforward workflow that provides the best results for the time you put in. Automations become popular for a reason, and it cuts the costs, especially when doing repetitive tasks.
The first three steps require manual labor, but it’s fun. It requires some skill level to obtain clean and reusable cells.
The rest of the steps are monkey business that almost no one likes. Especially the part where you need to write on each cell, write in an excel spreadsheet, then lay down all the cells to find the right ones for your pack.
Tedious work is well paid if it requires skill to do it, but this kind of work does not require much skill, and it makes cell recovery not worth it because of the amount of time it takes to do the monkey part.
Now, here’s where automation comes in handy. The only thing you must do is to place the cells into the Megacell Charger, and the automated workflow will start.
Measuring the cells, comparing the results with the original datasheet of the cell, telling you how much life the cell has remained, what capacity, what internal resistance, show you graphs with the temperature and in the end, print you a label that can be applied directly on the cell.
