How to recharge a battery from a scrap solar light, a cordless rechargable drill, and a minimum of equipment (like alligator clips and wire some scrap battery holders recycled from household electronic devices.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1110734

There are some popular articles about partially restoring non rechargeable batteries with pulse charging.
Unfortunately they can rupture in the process.

I have an electronics background and experience. What would you recommend to people who probably are not storing up adequate supplies? I think preparedness folks are storing up supplies to cope for a set period.

At some point batteries that can hold their charge well and have long life are probably the key. I'm thinking nickel iron batteries using lye made from wood ashes. The main issue I see is finding a source of nickel that isn't an alloy. There's lots of scrap iron.

Nickel is not commonly mined in the USA. See this map:

It is was commericially mined in Riddle, Oregon and there are plans to mine in it Michigan. I see it as a very important future resource.
