Re: [EVDL] Did someone say that they found a source for SAFT nicad replacement electr

The solution of KOH also has LiOH approx 7% and has a final SG of about 1.25
to 1.30. That is all it is. NB the electrolyte is only a carrier for ions,
it does not change SG during charge or discharge. The NiCds might improve in
capacity after a few charge discharge cycles after replacement fluid.You can
turn the leftover electrolyte into soap if you boil it to make a strong
solution & then add fat etc but may not be too good for you due to Ni & Cd
salts.
