I have taken batteries that appeared to be lost, such as described in this thread, and by charging using a modern charger brought them back to usuable life. Modern chargers, especially if using their restorative modes, can often revive batteries. Anyone not using a micrprocessor controlled 3 or 4 stage charger is abusing their batteries. Those basic automotive battery chargers are crude and hopelessly obsolete.
