Looked like a very competent restoration despite the lack of precision tools and safety equipment. I wouldn't be concerned about the quality of the battery as much as about the process's effect on the workers' health.

Re: Would you consider a reconditioned battery from this crowd?

Lead was ubiquitous when I was a small boy. The water tanks were all sealed with lead solder and pretty well all the auto fuel had it in and was spewing it into the atmosphere.

There's a theory that Rome declined because of lead in the water from the lead pipes.

However, comparing the craziness levels in society between then and now I'm beginning to suspect that we should be putting lead back into the water supply and gasoline.
