When batteries go out of order, it does not necessarily mean that they must be immediately replaced with new ones. As a rule, it’s just a part of the battery that gets damaged, but causes the entire assembly to go defunct. This corrupt segment can be replaced by a skilled technician who is good with a welder in minutes, but then it’s the battery software (EEPROM or integrated Flash content) that must be modified for it to continue working normally. If you are in the laptop and battery repair business, don’t miss an opportunity to start using a tool that will do this second part better than you can imagine!
Battery EEPROM Works is a super-compact tool that makes the complex task of EEPROM modification a snap. Once the damaged battery segment has been replaced, you need to connect the EEPROM chip to and adapter and click a button to read SMBus data from the battery terminal. The program will analyze battery parameters and restore them to their original values. This includes resetting the Full Charge Capacity parameter, which will now reflect the actual cell capacity, zeroing the Cycles Data value and changing the Manufacture Date to the current date. The software will also remove the Permanent Failure flag and a few other values that may point to some issues with the battery in the past. Battery EEPROM Works supports the overwhelming majority of laptop batteries and controllers. Other features include a cells tester, possibility to save EEPROM and Data Flash dumps in the BIN format and reset chip data to factory defaults with just 1 click!
