    Does putting a dead Li-ion battery in the freezer really help revive it?

    If I put a lithium ion battery in the freezer, I heard it can help revive the battery. Is this true? If so, how does this work?

    A Lithium-Ion battery does not "take a set" like the older battery technologies. That's one of its better properties. And, generally speaking, other than internal wiring connection problems, they operate to specifications right up to the point they are "dead". If yours is intermittent then I would consider getting rid of it. If it no longer holds a full charge, then I would suspect an internal leak and get rid of it.
    Good Luck.
