    We're looking to buy a battery from this guy, to make e-bike batteries from the cells. He has a wrecked car and here's the state of the battery:

    We have no idea how long the battery has been dead.

    1.) is it possible that the battery has been damaged (could be months?)
    2.) What is the easiest way to get this thing charging? The car came with no charger or adapter of any kind.
    3.) He has the dash running with a jump start battery connected to the 12v system.
    (PM me if you're near DeWitt or Grand Mount and have something!)
