Less K,
Yes I have worked with the Alum before and I did convert two or three Lead Acid batteries. However if you use junk batteries that is what you get junk.

I have never tried to revive them when they are shorted. I take new batteries and dump the acid. I then wash them out and add the Alum treatment. I still have all the batteries at the shop and use them every day for the chargers not one of those batteries has failed. If you do not want the acid around that is the way to go.

Lidmotor that is ok I have just wound another coil without the iron rod it work real good. but if you do that add 10 extra feet of wire.
