Default Activating/ Charging Biochar

Alright, so I've got 2 metal trashcans full of charcoal collected from burn rings.
I read that it needs to be "charged" before being added to the soil, and I'm wondering if any of you have a procedure or recommendation to do this?

I see lots of videos of people using gobs of expensive ingredients (loads of guano, liquid kelp, micronized rock dust, etc.), but I'm looking for cost-effective, simple, and (relatively) quick way to make my charcoal effective.

Anyone have any ideas? Compost teas? Manures? Fish emulsion? etc?
