The BatteryMinder is a easy-to install device that connects directly to your battery or battery bank. One BatteryMinder can handle all the batteries onboard. Just connect it to the central (+) of your battery switch and the ships negative ground (-). It automatically sends out high frequency spikes at random frequencies up to 35 Amps in amplitude which effectively knocks the sufanation off of your batteries' plates and desolves it back into the electrolite. A clean battery holds more amp hours and charges deeper. The BatteryMINDer® OnBoard Desulphators are designed to desulphate* deep-cycle and starter lead-acid storage batteries via your alternator, 120 VAC charger or Solar charger. Solar powered electrical systems, using deep-cycle batteries for storage, will significantly benefit when their batteries are free of sulphate.The BatteryMINDer® utilizes a patented technology to produce a wide range of high frequency pulses known as RFP ™ (Random Frequency Pulsation) designed to dissolve both old long-established, and newly formed sulphate*.
RFP™ circuitry allows the OnBoard desulphator to sweep the entire frequency range known to cause sulphation crystal molecules to resonate, un-bond, and then safely dissolves them. The sulphuric acid, the main component in the sulphate crystals, is now free and returns to the battery’s electrolyte. As a result, the Specific Gravity (S.G.) of the electrolyte is now higher and able to generate more electrical energy-storage capacity, than the previously sulphated batteries. Considerably less charging-source energy (solar panels, generators, alternators, et al) and much faster recharge, to full capacity, can now be expected. This is significant in “off the grid” solar installations when solar exposure times are short and / or power demands are high.
Many boat batteries are not used for long periods of time will benefit significantly from OnBoard desulphation. This automatic process continuously “clean” the battery’s charge plates. With sulphate-free plates the reduced performance and life shortening affect of long-term storage will be minimized. Each time they are recharged, the damaging affect of long-term non-use are significantly reduced.
Additional advantages of using sulphation-free batteries include eliminating or greatly reducing the need for “equalizing” deep-cycle flooded (filler-caps) batteries, reduced recharge time, while demanding less output energy from solar arrays.
*Sulphate is considered to be the single most important cause of shortened battery life and performance. Battery Council International, January ’98, 12 months; Nov. ’95 – Oct. ‘96
