There is the video by @Djani Again below. He used MX4 charger to revive some old over-discharged 18650 batteries and salvage them successfully. So how does xtar charger recover this kind of battery? Check more info here.

XTAR chargers use a specialized technique to detect and activate the over-discharged batteries. The process begins with the application of a small charging current (around 100mA). This gentle approach is crucial, to wake up and protect the battery. While, not all over-discharged batteries can be revived again. Batteries that have been deeply over-discharged to a point where their internal chemistry is significantly degraded cannot be recovered. This typically happens when a battery is left in a discharged state for a very long time or has been cycled far beyond its intended lifespan.

XTAR smart chargers can detect the over-discharged battery. It ensures the Activation process is initiated when necessary. Besides, the chargers are equipped with state-of-the-art circuitry and firmware that optimize the charging process for various battery conditions. All of these enhances the battery recovery rate.

To ensure your batteries' performance and longevity, it's always important to maintain them properly.
