Default Guide to reviving the Segway Gen 1 and Gen 2 battery

I wrote this guide primarily for myself because I've had this happen to me (Segway accidentally left unplugged) 4 times now, the last one just yesterday, and it has continued to save my batteries.

I am posting this here in case It helps anyone else. This is for the original Gen 1 and Gen 2 Segway units. I do not own a Ninebot.

Thank you, Rene. Very nice writeup. I'm heartened to see that you trickle charge your battery on a fireproof tile floor.

Smile Guide to rejuvinating segway batteries

I did indeed give this method a try and it worked beautifully --- I am back in business with two fully charged batteries.
Thank you again Rene for a thorough and concise guide
I would heartily recommend this method before shelling out a lot of money for either a reconditioned or a new battery. Admittedly not ever battery will respond but for those that have simply been depleted to the point they will not be recognized by the on board charger this worked perfectly.

Glad to see it worked for you! Let me know if you have any recommendations for improving the guide.

Cheers!

Li-Ion batteries deserve a lot of respect for the stored energy they contain.
Also I love my home

Rene - this guide worked perfectly. I donít know if you saw my thread but after a power outage, the charger in my Segway appeared to lock up, and I lost enough voltage that one battery dipped down to 40v or so. A quick float charge and itís good as new.

Thanks for writing this up so clearly! Saved the battery. :-)
