Question for the group
I have a rechargeable battery that was MIA for a couple months. When I finally found it, charged it and tried to use, it didn't have much oomph left.
Is there some way I can cycle the battery to resuscitate it? It is not clearly marked as to its composition, though I may be able to look that
up on the manufacturers site if it is particularly relevant.
Any insights would be appreciated.

It really depends what the composition of the battery is.

I think if it is nickel-metal halide you can fully discharge and recharge 3-4 times and it may start working well again.

If it is lithium ion then you may not be getting it back, they don't like full discharges at all. Plus there is that "exploding" thing to worry about.
