Pulse Technology is a unique, patented process that substantially eliminates sulfation buildup on battery plates, the main cause of lead-acid battery problems and failure. It works by reversing the natural electro-chemical reaction within the battery. In the normal energy transfer process within a lead acid battery, the sulfates in the electrolyte solution (battery acid) travel back and forth between the positive and negative plates, taking on and giving off energy. As lead sulfates form on the plates during the normal charge/discharge cycles, some of the sulfates will root to the plate and enlarge to the point where they will no longer accept or release energy.

  1. What are the benefits of using Pulse Technology?

    The main benefit of Pulse Technology is to ensure battery performance so you can rely on your battery any time you need it. As we said above, by cleaning the battery plates our unique Pulse Technology provides the following benefits:

    • Get better performance by maintaining maximum battery efficiency and reliability.
    • Save money on battery costs by extending battery life dramatically.
    • Helps batteries charge faster and maintain greater reserve capacity so they can provide more available power to your vehicles and accessories.
    • Help protect the environment by not having to discard batteries prematurely.
  2. Is it possible to recover a dead battery that will no longer accept a charge?

        Yes, if you are using our Pulse Technology products. Although our products are designed for keeping good, new batteries in peak condition for a longer period of time, some of them can be used to bring batteries that will not accept and hold a charge back to useful condition.

        Here’s what you do: Use a PulseTech 390PT (741X390) Digital Battery Analyzer to determine if the battery is a good candidate for recovery (Note: Even though the analyzer may read “REPLACE BATTERY,” it could still be recoverable.)

        The ideal way to recover a battery is to use our Xtreme Charge 20A Pulse Recovery / Maintenance Charger. Make sure the cells are filled with distilled water and attach the battery to the Pulse Charger. If the Bad Battery light begins to flash, it is indicating a problem and the battery is probably not recoverable. If the light does not flash, you can proceed.

        Leave the Charger on the battery for at least 36 hours. At any given point during the charge it may shut off automatically so it won’t overcharge your battery. During the “off” period it is no longer charging but you will notice that it will continue to pulse condition the battery. As it continues to pulse and de-sulfate the battery it is likely to cycle through the charge and pulse sequence a number of times before the battery is brought back up to an improved condition. The number of times it may cycle will be dependent upon a number of factors including the age of the battery and the time it may have been sitting unused, the depth of discharge, the physical size of the battery (amount of plate surface area) and the depth or state of sulfation damage that may have occurred.

        Next, use the PulseTech PT390 digital battery analyzer as mentioned above to check the battery for improvement. If there has been at least a 20% increase in Cold Cranking Amps (CCA), you may proceed repeating the process as needed, using the analyzer to check for improvement.

        Keep in mind that some very badly sulfated battery plates could take several days to clean. Also, not all batteries can be totally recovered. If a battery has a short circuit or physical damage, it is impossible to bring back.

  3. Which product should I use when storing my vehicles for long periods of time?

    We suggest you use the Xtreme Charge (XC100) if stored indoors with access to AC power or SolarPulse SP-2 or SP-5 if stored outdoors without access to AC power but access to the Sun’s energy. Besides preventing sulfation buildup, they also prevent the normal loss of battery power no matter how long your vehicle or equipment sits unused — even months at a time.

    If you need to keep multiple batteries maintained then one of our QuadLink Kits is ideal. It comes with an Xtreme Charger and one or two QuadLink Multipliers (depending on which kit you decide on – either the XC-QL4-K1 or X2-QL4-K2) and will maintain either 4 or 8 batteries in peak condition.

    Keep in mind that under normal conditions a battery will lose 1% of its energy a day while the vehicle sits unused. That means it will not take long for a battery to become completely discharged, especially if it was not fully charged in the first place. Xtreme Charge and Solar Pulse will not allow those batteries to loose energy and will maintain them indefinitely. The Solar Pulse will maintain and condition the battery and the Xtreme Charge will Charge, Maintain and Condition the battery every day.

    If you do not have access to ac power or sunlight, you can use PowerPulse. Keep in mind that PowerPulse was designed more for vehicles and equipment that are used frequently or charged on a regular basis vs. those that are stored. Yet, based on lab testing, a 12-Volt PowerPulse will maintain a 12-volt battery for approximately 2 to 3 months off a full charge if left unattended. We’re not saying the vehicle will always start at that point, but the battery will be free of sulfation buildup, will be able to be jump-started into action, and it will recharge and hold a charge like a new battery.

  4. Will weather affect my battery?

    Yes. What many people don’t realize is that extreme cases of heat and cold will increase the speed of sulfation buildup and the rate of discharge within a battery. For example, when the weather starts to get hotter, the rate of sulfation buildup will actually double for every 10-degree increase in temperature. That means that if the temperature goes from 75° to 95°, sulfation buildup on battery plates will occur 400% faster than normal. So….batteries stored or in vehicles in warm weather have the potential to fail due to the build-up of sulfation, much sooner than batteries stored or in vehicles in cooler weather.

    Cold weather, this is a real “Domino Effect”. When it’s cold outside, sulfation buildup in combination with the slow-down of the chemical reaction within the battery will rob the batteries ability to provide operational power and is only exaggerated as vehicle fluids thicken due to the cold. This cold condition causes even more available power and capability to be taken from the battery to start the vehicle, so the battery has to work harder than normal to provide additional power demanded by the vehicle and as a result realizes a further reduction in voltage causing faster buildup of sulfates on the lead plates. Also, keep in mind that the battery’s electrolyte can actually freeze if the battery is in an advanced state of discharge, and this could physically damage the lead plates. At 1.270 specific gravity (100% charged) battery acid will freeze at -83°F, at 1.200 it will freeze at -17°F and at 1.140 (completely discharged) it will freeze at only 8°F.

  5. What makes PulseTech products different from other battery charging and maintenance products available on the market?

    PulseTech offers many battery charging and maintenance products that utilize our revolutionary and patented Pulse Technology. This technology is designed to help prevent the main cause of battery problems and failure: sulfation buildup (lead sulfate deposits on the battery plates) and related problems. Some products may claim to provide the same benefits as ours, but most of them merely try to “maintain” the battery by charging them on a constant basis. The problem is too much charging will ultimately overheat and damage the lead plates. In other words, the “cure” could be worse than the disease when not done properly.

    Other products even claim to remove lead sulfate deposits from the plates. But, this too is usually done by over charging the plates with high voltage in order to literally knock the sulfates loose. In this situation, only a few sulfates are removed as active plate material sheds and falls useless away from the battery plates. It’s sort of like blowing up the house just to get rid of the termites.

    On the other hand, PulseTech products enable the embedded sulfates to leave the plates and converts them to active electrolytes. They also help prevent sulfates from building up again and won’t harm the battery or the vehicle charging system in any way.
