Tech Tip: How to extend battery life

How to deal with lead-acid battery failure due to the damaging effects of sulfation build-up.


As good as modern lead-acid batteries are the majority suffer from the same main failure mode—80 percent of all lead-acid batteries fail due to the damaging effects of sulfation build-up. If left unmanaged, sulfates found in the electrolyte will crystallize and root onto the battery plates creating a physical barrier across the surface of the plates, eventually resulting in premature battery failure.

In addition to regular, routine maintenance its important to find charging systems that combine scientifically validated desulfation technologies, such as PulseTech’s patented Pulse Technology, designed to reduce the build-up of sulfation on battery plates, thus improving the batteries’ ability to create, store and release energy.

Batteries routinely maintained with PulseTech’s Pulse Technology through products such as PowerPulse, SP-5 Solar Charger Maintainer and the Xtreme Charge 12V Battery Charger have gained many years of extended life—in some cases up to 5x the normal life cycle.

PulseTech maintenance chargers, which all feature the patented Pulse Technology, work with ANY 12V lead-acid battery, regardless of size of CCA rating, including AGM, gel-cell, VRLA inducing or deep cycle for marine, standard automobile and truck and even small motorcycle and golf cart and riding mower batteries.
