Most people do not know that is is very possible to revive virtually any battery. From a car battery to reconditioning of NiCd and NiMH batteries or lithium-ion batteries. And, with a bit of knowledge and some simple tools you too really can do battery reconditioning yourself. Reuse your "dead" battery without hurting your wallet.

Is reconditioning a battery the same as recharging them?
No it isn't.
Reconditioning a battery means you restore it to its full original capacity – or 'health'. When recharging a battery you give it a charge for a certain period of time. And you know that any battery will only allow a certain number of recharges before it 'dies.' The battery becomes less effective with every recharge and you get less charge lifetime out of them each time.
