Lead Acid Batteries Life Extension Tips

However we wish we do not live in a faultless world and sulfate build up is the main reason of battery failure. But if it is maintained and properly kept will keep the batteries in decent fresh condition, and prolong the useful life of the battery.

Will a Battery Desulfator Recover or Extend the Life of My Lead Acid Batteries?

Sulfate crystal build up has been known about since the Lead Acid battery was first invented, and this build up leads to over 70% of premature failure of lead acid batteries. However all batteries wear out over time and no device can stop that happening.

Over the last 30 years or so battery manufactures have made great strides in combating sulfate build up and improving the life span of their batteries, by introducing changes to the construction of the battery plates, and in ideal circumstances, proper maintenance and correct charging, sulfation should not be a problem.

However we do not live in a perfect world and sulfate build up remains the major cause of battery failure. Around 20 years ago a simple device that created high voltage pulse sent to the battery was developed, called a pulse generator or desulfator. This, in practice, created the same effect as the controlled overcharge except it was not regulated, so over time these high voltage pulses damaged the battery plates. This negated the positive effect. The circuit board diagrams for this type of device are freely available on the internet and many of the low-cost devices available today are built using these designs. Short-term solution, long-term damage.

To name a few there have been dissimilar sorts of batteries over the years but none have had the sensibleness or fame of the very first rechargeable one, the lead-acid battery.

What are some advanced battery basics for beginners?

Electric cars have been with us since the very beginning of the automobile age and from that time until now, its most important component has been the battery. It stores energy chemically until it is needed to create the electricity that powers a vehicle’s motor. There have been different types of batteries over the years but none have had the practicality or popularity of the very first rechargeable one, the lead-acid battery.

As well as the lead acid battery has served us over the decades, it also has its drawbacks. These disadvantages have really kept electric vehicles from being a mainstream practical reality. Not only are they heavy and unable to hold a lot of energy, but the number of times they can be charged and discharged (cycled) is rather low. Luckily for us, the past 20 years have seen new battery technologies developed and commercialized. Hit the jump for more battery basics.

For automotive uses the battery that has truly taken off in recent years is the nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) battery. And for your body repair needs we at Guanella will take care of it for you.
