Troubleshooting Tips & Facts

When Lithium batteries are stored for improper periods or storage, they can go into protection mode which results in either 0 volts, 1.4 volts, or a strangely low voltage. Most customers will believe their battery is dead and needs replacing, but the reality is that 98 percent of these batteries are refusing to be charged because the charger is unable to recognize the battery until its voltage surpasses 10 volts, only then can the charger activate the charging mode.

Here is a video that will help you understand your problem with examples of how you can reset your lithium battery to except a charge.

Following this, a Victron Blue Smart IP65 Charger can charge any battery.

Blue Smart IP65 Charger – Recovery of deeply-discharged Lithium ion batteries.  Unlike other brands, the Blue Smart IP65 Charger will attempt to recharge a deeply-discharged battery by force-feeding it with a low current. Normal charging will then be resumed as soon as there is sufficient voltage across the battery terminals.

How to Fix a Lithium Battery That Won't Charge

If your lithium battery is not charging, there are a few solutions to consider. First, check the charger to ensure it is working properly. Next, clean the battery contacts using alcohol and a cotton swab. Tighten the battery and wires securely. Try to charge it. If the charger does not recognize the battery,  put the low-voltage battery in parallel with a fully charged battery. It can be lead acid or AGM. After placing it in parallel, wait an hour before attempting to charge it again.
 
Lithium batteries are sensitive and can lose charge if mishandled. However, there are steps you can take to revive a battery that is losing charge. Place the battery in an airtight bag and store it in the freezer for 24 hours. After removing it from the freezer, allow it to rest for 8 hours before attempting to charge it. This method often resets the chemical balance and restores functionality.
