  • I've reconditioned 17 batteries with EZ Battery Reconditioning. I was curious about your program so I decided to try it out after hearing from a friend how well this worked for her. I'm so glad I did! I've reconditioned 17 batteries with EZ Battery Reconditioning, even an old car battery I thought was long gone. My son likes using your program too! This is a skill everybody should know! Thank you, Tom and Frank. ♣♣♣ http://t.cn/AiFAb0DL
