Frequently Asked Questions
What is Reconditioning?
Reconditioning of a HV battery is a rigorous process in which we closely extract and assess the electronic data output of each individual module contained within the module contained within the battery pack. Through the use of our state of the art technology, we are able to locate poorly functioning and uncharged cells.
It is during this process that we carefully monitor the voltage and amperage utilized as we charge your HV battery. Once we have thoroughly tested the entire battery pack, we will then begin the technical process of discharging and re-charging he battery to return it up to 95% of its original performance state when manufactured.
Included with this service is an inspection of the cooling system where we remove any debris that has accumulated in fan blades, ductwork, and the side of the battery.
When is it time to recondition my hybrid battery?
Have you noticed that your fuel economy has begun to decline?
When you drive your hybrid vehicle, does it feel as if it is performing slower than when you first drove it?
Does your vehicle feel as if it's ability to accelerate is not what it once was?
If you answered yes to either of these questions, it is a great time to contact Veldman's Hybrid Center for a consultation about the condition of your hybrid battery. The possibility is strong that your battery may not be performing at its optimum. The good news is that we specialize in reconditioning hybrid batteries to maintain your vehicle's peak performance.
Why recondition my hybrid battery?
Reconditioning is a cost-effective AND environmentally responsible approach to maintaining your hybrid vehicle. Through our sophisticated testing process, we are able to extract data directly from your battery pack. (level of energy per module)
Through the data compiled through the use of this technology, Veldman's Hybrid Center will customize a charging and discharging regimen that allows your current battery pack to be restored up to 95% of its original performance state.
And since we are able to REUSE your hybrid battery, reconditioning becomes a much more cost effective alternative to the purchase of a brand new battery.
