Recharging 12 Volt Non-rechargeable Battery with Bedini Charger.
I already recharged larger dry cell NON-rechargeable lantern batteries with the Bedini Renaissance Battery charger and rejuvenator. Although the makers of the Bedini Renaissance Battery charger don't say or recommend to do this I had good results. I used the lowest setting (setting 1) on the Bedini Renaissance Battery charger. I'm not sure how many times you can do this with batteries that are not designed to be recharged, but this did work several times on one 6 volt lantern battery already. These were just plain dry cell, non alkaline, Ray-O-Vac lantern batteries that are used in typical flashlights. This 12 volt volt non-rechargeable lantern battery took a charge when I used the lowest setting (setting 1) with the Bedini Renaissance battery charger and the green light on came on the battery charger eventually without the lantern battery getting hot or showing signs of damage. This battery charging method seems to work pretty good on the larger non-rechargeable dry cell batteries. It's not recommended by the manufacturer of both the batteries or the charger, but I got good results experimenting with this.
