"Conditioner" Boosts Battery Life
No matter how long a lead-acid battery has been in or out of service, this new battery conditioner can extend its life, says IES, Innovative Energy Systems.
  As batteries charge and recharge, sulfur
begins to harden and crystallize on the surface of the lead plates, creating a permanent insulative barrier. As this barrier becomes thicker, the battery's ability to accept a charge or deliver energy is greatly decreased.
  The "DeSulfator" simply connects to the battery and prevents sulfur buildup by continually sending electronic pulses through the plates.
  Once installed, batteries remain charged and the process of sulfation can even be reversed on older batteries.
  A unit for batteries that are used regularly sells for $109 plus S&H. A unit for high-capacity batteries sells for $159 plus S&H. A solar-powered unit sells for $295 plus S&H.
