    This method is also environmentally friendly. The crud that results can be used to green up your lawn.

      I wonder if using a battery in conjunction to the battery charger would protect the charger. Many of the chargers will burn up if turned on without a load. I have a charger with instructions to turn off the charger before disconnecting from the battery.

        Certainly not a gimmick to me. Cost less then $5.00, gets rid of rust in any area that the liquid can get to, and requires very little labor. I have a Avanti trunk latch cooking as we speak.

          Because you are actively involved in this technology, What is the usual amperage of the charger you use on parts like the trunk latch? Thx

            It's only drawing 3-4 amp right now so it's on a small charger. Set it as high as you like, the size of the part determines the current draw. i.e. a cylinder head may draw 20 amps or more with a big anode. You can even derust the inside of a gas tank by just filling it with the solution and suspending the anode away from tank sides.
