My car battery was not working as it was n't starting car engine. So I took to Battery Service Centre for recharging. I was told that Gravity of One of the cell is very low. He also advised me to replace the battery with new one for Rs.3500/-. I would like to know Whether Is it possible to repair a battery, which is having low gravity in one particular cell?

By replacing the complete solution the battery can be used for some more time. Mechanic could have sugested to go for new one for trouble free usage of battery.

Dear Friend
Usually when specific gravity of electrolyte falls down, it loses strength in retaining the charge. So the mechanic has advised to replace with new battery. But you ask me to drain complete electrolyte, refill with new electrolyte (Sp. Gravity of liquid should be 1.26) and put it on slow charging. There is possibility you can reuse the battery and important is regular usage of vehicle in order to charge the battery.
