Well in that case you should have more than enough too More capacity = more metal since the metal holds the difference in electrons.

When we did annodizing in chemistry we used about 3v max, or it turned to sludge

How big were the parts you were anodising though?

Btw, sorry for hijacking your thread, i'll make a new one if you wish.

Just been out and drained the battery, can see all the lead plates inside now it's drained, just need to figure out how to get this casing open... dremel it? lol!?

If you undo the bolts on the top, does that get you anywhere? 12V should be fine, the difficulty will be not applying too much current (high voltage + high current = very hot). That shouldn't be too difficult really tho. Make sure to filter that sulphuric acid because it looks like its got a load of stuff in it which might (probably won't) colour the aluminium a tasty **** brown

Just tried dremeling it, cut a big square in the red section on the top and then had a change of plan, gonna knock it onto its side and grab the hacksaw, take all that top edge off (just above the label).

Need to mix up some bicarb and water though, dont fancy tipping it on its side and having sulphuric pour all over the garden...hehehe!

Right hacksawing through the top didn't work either, the plastic is solid in the centre.

Adopted a new approach in the form of dremeling the entire thing to kingdom come...

Got both ends off, gonna get both the sides off tomorrow then I "should" be able to retreive the bar.

Keyword = "Should"
