    OMG! R.I.P dude! This will have a realy bad effect on your health! You need to have your vitals checked asap. Unless you already are one step from beeing dead this is by far the worst idea ever. While you are at it, take a 2 week holiday and camp in Chernobyl!

    What a bunch of circlejerking wankers.
    The man shared a very interesting video. I dont see any one of the cucks in the comments section doing a better job of it.

    I was saved from spending funds on a brand new car battery when I heard about the reconditioning program ( Check Details Here>>>facebook.com/Battery-reconditioning-310070329426065/app/208195102528120 ), therefore I tried it to recondition my old auto battery! I thought it would take much effort and hard work, however it was simple as ABC. That already saved me about $ 100 and there are a lot of some other batteries.

    t was a weekend when I discovered 2 of the batteries I used were not functioning any more. Now, they are working because of the reconditioning program ( Check Details Here>>>facebook.com/Battery-reconditioning-310070329426065/app/208195102528120 ) I saves $ 180 because of this method!

    DO NOT BUY BATTERIES FROM EBAY. Only buy from trusted retailers that test their cells due to an incredibly high number of fakes. Illunm, imrbatteries and liionwholesale are much more reliable places to buy cells.

    *I never thought restoring [ check Details Here>>>**t.co/jfXRNloTu0** ] only takes a handful of simple steps to do. My old (and once dead) auto batteries, cellular phone battery, drill battery, digital camera battery and tons of other batteries are all reconditioned and functioning great again! Since starting this program I have saved over $ 400 on batteries!_*

    Hello Sir,
    Very Good Morning to you !
    This is Pradeep D Vidhate here form Nashik . Recently I read you research about lithium ion cell.
    First of all congrulation to you regarding your research .It was really amazing .The purpose of this email is here I want your help and support .Because I wish to manufacture a lithium ion cell for that I am not having enough knowledge of electro chemistry can you please help me out for this .I just want to know ratio of the material , Nano size, density etc. Technical support and so on .coming towards me I am having knowledge of cell calendaring, cell packing, BMS , Battery pack, mechanical and automation etc.
    Coming towards my background I currently worked with HDFC BANK as a agriculture sales officer I have also completed my 12 th science Graduation in BCOM,ICWA degree , ITI in ELECTRICAL & MOTOR WINDING .
    So it my humble request to you kindly reward me back as soon as possible. So , lets work together in this project and let’s make our country eco friendly India.
    Thanks and regard ,
    Mr.Pradeep D Vidhate, Mrs .Swati P Vidhate.

The steps are simple and the act itself is exciting to do. No matter what type of battery you`ve got, it is sure to function again!*
