Electrolysis set up

Sorry if this was the wrong forum. But, I need help, I am wanting to do electrolysis on some rusty relics. I can not find a manual battery charger for my project. Anyone have a solution for me? Thanks for looking.

You mean for electroplating ?
That usually requires a variable voltage DC power supply.
A battery charger may work but won't be variable.

The Schumacher MC-1 is a popular choice if you don't need to vary the voltage.

I think the OP is looking for "electrolytic rust removal", which uses a steel anode, washing soda solution, and a dc power source such as a battery charger to remove rust. Sounds like he's looking for an alternate 12v / 2a power supply.

As I previously posted....... the Schumacher MC-1. It's a 1A non automatic charger.
