But I would like this battery to work well enough to keep the small things in my trailer working.
thanks for your help
I have heard similar things over the years, and auto parts stores used to sell little tubes of additive that was supposed to "restore" batteries.
Even if they do work, it is for a pretty short period, and will not "restore" the battery, just allow you to get a little more life out of it. Once a cell goes bad, the battery is near the end of it's useful life. I certainly would not do that to a battery in a boat, or any other vehicle where I am likely to be away from shore, or off the beaten path on land though. Almost a guarantee of a stranding, with my luck.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
