I don't think we "might be", I think we are.

Thanks both Michale and Kathy. Adding to the point of storing energy in batteries; I watched a clip featuring folks in a third world country who was resourceful in that they rebuilt discarded car batteries. Actually remolding and replacing the essential lead plates. A bit of work but little money involved.

Jeremiah 5:21 King James Version 
Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:
2 Chronicles 7:14
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

I watched either that one or a similar one.  Way more work and more risk than I want to take (all that acid... I've been burned on battery acid before).  But if I was desperate I might consider it.  The up side is you can probably repair a lot of the batteries out there and they are essentially free.  Even if you pay the cost of scrap lead you can sell them for the price of scrap lead when you are done...

For curiosity, does anyone know how many times car battery acid, (sulfuric acid), can be reused in a battery recycling or battery rebuilding situtation?

If the battery is completely dead the "acid" is basically water.  If the battery won't take a charge it will remain water.
