PulseTech’s says its most popular SolarPulse Battery Chargers (SP-2, SP-5 and SP-10) have been replaced with more efficient versions that offer increased wattage to charge, maintain and desulfate lead-acid batteries in vehicles and equipment stored outside.
The company says electric vehicles often experience a loss of battery power from sitting unused or show a gradual deterioration of battery quality over time as sulfation crystals form on the battery plates preventing maximum power and shortening battery life.
These new, more powerful SolarPulse Solar Charger Maintainers solve these problems by dramatically reducing jump starts, increasing battery power and extending battery life by as much as three times.
PulseTech said: “With so many vehicles stored outside or constantly on the go, AC power sources to operate battery maintenance systems aren’t always practical or available. SolarPulse is the perfect solution using the power of the sun to keep batteries charged and in peak condition eliminating wasted time and money from unexpected battery failures.
“Poor or little battery maintenance leads to unnecessary battery replacement costs, but it can also lead to expensive emergency jump starts or tows. Downtime leads to money and opportunity lost and premature battery replacements are a costly expense to the budget.”
The new SolarPulse 3-, 7- and 12-Watt battery chargers dramatically reduce problems by combining PulseTech’s patented, high frequency Pulse Technology with microprocessor controlled intelligent charging algorithms to charge, condition and maintain vehicle and equipment batteries, extend battery performance and useful life by three times.
As a battery ages through use or sits unused for periods of time, lead sulfate crystals enlarge and buildup excessively to the point where they create a physical barrier across the surface of the battery plates.
Before long, this build-up can become so dense that a battery is no longer able to accept or release energy – effectively killing the battery. In fact, 80 per cent of batteries worldwide are discarded due to battery sulfation.
The company adds: “PulseTech’s technology solves the sulfation problem. It desulfates the battery plates and returns the battery to a like-new state capable of holding a full charge. Pulse Technology has been proven by The U.S. Air Force Management Equipment & Evaluation Program, Ohio University and Oakland University to extend battery life.
“SolarPulse works with all types of 12-Volt batteries, including conventional flooded, gel, AGM and VRLA. It utilizes greater efficiency, higher quality monocrystalline cells that pack more power per square inch than standard amorphous “thin film” solar cell panels.
“It is protected with a clear, polyurethane plastic coating mounted on a laminated aluminum making it virtually indestructible and impervious to weather, aging and damage from everyday knocks and bumps.”
