How We Recover Them

Poorly managed vehicle battery maintenance can lead to early failure and unnecessary replacement costs. It can also take away valuable time from a mechanic’s daily schedule and their ability to perform other tasks, such as general troubleshooting and repair. Ultimately, poor battery maintenance will affect the readiness of a company’s rolling stock.

 

In today’s vehicles, the rising number of electrical loads presents a challenge to the battery. More than half of vehicle breakdowns that are caused by the electrical system can be traced back to the lead-acid battery and could have been avoided through quality battery maintenance management.

 

BNB Battery has developed a leading edge battery management system that includes products, practices, and ongoing consultation to keep your battery assets in optimum condition at all times. Our system has no impact on the manufacturer’s warranty as we implement procedures to keep the battery in great operating condition.

 

Our system uses various pulse switching technology and leading edge measurement techniques to restore and return to service many of the “bad” batteries that have lost their capacity while in a vehicle or stockpiled in warehouses.

 

As a battery ages through use, or non-use for long periods of time, lead sulfate crystals enlarge and can build up excessively to the point that they create a physical barrier across the surface of the plate. Before long, this buildup can become so dense that a battery can no longer accept or release energy, so it becomes a dead or non-operational energy source. 

 

For the past 100 years, these “bad” batteries were removed and replaced with new units. The “dead” batteries were traded in as “cores” and stockpiled and discarded or recycled rather than evaluated and restored to service.

 

Pulse switching technology and leading edge measurement products have changed the way we look at battery life cycles.  Today, we can accurately evaluate the internal condition of a battery and if required, use our system to dissolve and prevent the buildup of damaging lead-sulfate deposits on battery plates in a non-harmful way. This allows a battery to accept, store, and release maximum power all the time and for many months or years longer than if it is not managed properly.

 

Although our battery management system was developed to keep new batteries in peak condition for a longer period of time, many clients are using it to recover batteries that will not accept and hold a charge using conventional methods and equipment. We do this using new high-tech battery testing, charging and maintenance procedures that allow us to examine the internal condition of the battery and then apply the procedures required to return it to full capacity. We don't have to disassemble the battery to fix it and we use no chemical additives in the process.

 

The powerful value in our battery management system is that it is simple to use. As you’ll see in other sections of this site, we offer our battery management system in two formats. We will license our system to your company and show you how to maintain and recover your batteries on your own, or we’ll pick up your batteries, recover or maintain them, and then return them to you in operating condition. And, we’ll guarantee them! You can decide which offers you the greatest value and ease of use. Clients currently using these programs reduce their battery service and replacement costs by 20% - 80% - and that savings includes the license to implement our system.

 

Are There Any Other Advantages to a Battery Management System?

 

Certainly. When a battery regresses, it is usually due to it having a higher internal resistance than when it was in a new condition. The alternator in the vehicle sees this higher resistance and must work harder to recharge the battery. At some point, the alternator will stop trying to push more current into the battery which results in the battery not fully recharging. This in turn causes battery to increase its internal resistance even more. The alternators job just got bigger. Any time an electronic device has to regularly work outside its’ normal operating range, it too will deteriorate faster and eventually fail.

 

Also, when the battery is working at less than optimum condition, its capacity is diminished. As explained above, the lower capacity causes the alternator to work harder but it also affects the starter. When the available energy (capacity) from the battery to the starter motor is lessened, the starter has to turn slower and longer to start the vehicle engine. This will cause early starter failures.

 

Significant maintenance savings (labor, parts, vehicle down time) could result from the increased wear and tear on these parts.

 

By using our battery management system to keep your battery assets in optimum condition, your vehicles will operate more efficiently. Having the rated capacity of the battery available during operation, reducing the time and effort to recharge in vehicle, and adding the capability to recover “bad” batteries out of the vehicle can provide unprecedented performance for your company.

 

And What About Our Environment?

 

A professionally deployed battery management system has a significant effect on your carbon footprint measurement versus battery recycling. We are not against recycling lead-acid batteries.


But, there is a right time to do it.
 

In a best case scenario, your company decides to license our battery management system for your use. Good and “bad” batteries never leave your facility unless they are truly bad. Studies show that your recycling requirements would be reduced by around 80%. That means 80% of the batteries you send out for recycling today are not actually bad. In this case, you would only send out a maximum of 20% of your batteries for recycling. The parts of our system that require energy only use about the same power as a 150 Watt light bulb.


To continue recycling 100% of your “bad” batteries, a vendor uses fuel or electrical energy to deliver new batteries, pick up the “bad” batteries, transport them to a central storage facility, move them to a recycling center, shred and store the recycled material, transport that material to the battery manufacturer, use the material to manufacture a new battery, crate and palletize the new batteries, transport and store them in a warehouse, transport them to the battery retailer, and finally deliver them back to a client. Whoo! A lot of wasted energy used to create a new battery that will soon go bad again and need replacing using the same process. And 80% of the recycled batteries weren’t bad in the first place!

We believe we have a much more friendly environmental strategy.

 

In summary, your battery assets can only deliver optimum performance and maximum life if they are managed correctly. The 100 year old methods for doing so can’t provide the benefits you need. You might adjust your maintenance practices and gain minimal advances.  But at what cost?

 

Our system is tested and proven to offer the benefits of longer battery life, optimal performance while in use, faster recovery, ease of maintenance, and significant cost savings. And you can keep using the battery manufacturer and product you’ve already selected, or use the savings to upgrade to a better quality more functional product. We don’t sell batteries, we just make them last longer.
