Farmer gets 18 year bat­tery life

Farm World News - - Farm World 2016 -

Lead acid bat­ter­ies usu­ally die pre­ma­turely from sul­pha­tion build-up on in­ter­nal lead plates and, ac­cord­ing to Ger­ard Anselmi of RECHARGE Bat­tery Re­vi­tal­izer & Con­di­tioner, sul­pha­tion is very easy to treat and pre­vent pre­ma­ture bat­tery fail­ure with their sim­ple ‘Recharge’ Bat­tery Con­di­tion­ing Pro­gram, “We have been say­ing for years that farm­ers are get­ting 8 to 10yrs in our bat­tery con­di­tion­ing pro­gram.

“How­ever, most shows we do these days we meet peo­ple us­ing our RECHARGE Bat­tery Con­di­tion­ing Pro­gram with 12 and 14 year old bat­ter­ies of­ten still go­ing,” says Anselmi.

“In fact in 2014 we had three farm­ers with 17 year old bat­ter­ies and one of them was a Can­ter­bury farmer who re­turned to our last show of the year back in NZ at the Christchurch A&P show in Novem­ber 2015 to say his trac­tor bat­tery was now 18 and still run­ning like new.

“He was very pleased with the re­sults,” says Anselmi, “Af­ter 18 years on the mar­ket in NZ & 12 years in Aus­tralia I would not be sur­prised if we bet­tered that fig­ure given time”

A RECHARGE treat­ment will dis­solve the lead sul­phate build-up turn­ing those sul­phur ions back into sul­phuric acid elec­trolyte hold­ing elec­trons.

“We are chem­i­cally reversing the sul­pha­tion build-up process, one chem­i­cal re­ac­tion to counter an­other,” says Anselmi.

“Once treated a bat­tery is es­sen­tially run­ning at full ca­pac­ity, pro­vided the lead plates are still in good con­di­tion and preven­tion is the key. Treat them early re­peat ev­ery 2 – 3 years and keep them charged.”

Please note: we have a new site this year af­ter 11 years in E-street, Ger­ard and Deb­bie will be at the Farm World Field Days 2016 on their new site N-10a.

The 500ml farmer pack works out at around $4.50 per car bat­tery.

A more cost ef­fec­tive 2litre com­mer­cial pack is also avail­able and that pack can also be pur­chased on line at www.recharge.net.nz or on Ebay.

How­ever as RECHARGE is acid based it is dan­ger­ous goods and ex­pen­sive to freight: the 2-litre bot­tle is there­fore, the only one that we sell di­rectly and it is far cheaper at the field days.

And yes, you can treat sealed bat­ter­ies sim­ply by drilling into each cell treat- ing and re­seal­ing with sil­i­cone, sika-flex or a plas­tic bung. Recharge is also great for deep cy­cle bat­ter­ies like forkifts, golf carts, scis­sor hoists and light­ing sys­tem bat­ter­ies.
