Initial cell Zapping (usually done only once) is a process that can inhance the cells ability to have good power output......

Simplified version:
Initial zapping is the process of using a capacitor to push 100+ volts through the cell. This will increase the voltage output of the cell.
Maintenance zapping uses a lower voltage, 0-90 volts. This will break up any crystals that have formed inside the cell, increasing voltage of the cell and lowering its internal resistance giving you more punch.
