[DML] Re:Is this a possible way to store your Battery long term Re: Batteries(long)

Hi David.

I have successfully beat mild plate sulfation by charging the battery
backwards, then frontwards a few times, with fresh electrolyte.  It
didn't work on solidly sulfated batteries, and never bought me a lot
of extra battery life, but it did let me delay buying new batteries a
few times.  I've tried that technique several times, and it failed
more than it worked.  I suspect it just chews up the plate surface,
creating a little more surface area, while leaving the sulfated
portions unaffected. Charging a battery backwards is inherently risky.
 I wouldn't recommend it.

Hooking up AC, if they mean 120V ac, seems VERY dangerous to me.
