RECHARGE program offers longer battery life
ACCORDING to Gerard Anselmi of RECHARGE Battery Revitaliser & Conditioner sulphation build-up on lead acid batteries is very easy to treat in order to prevent premature battery failure.
Lead acid batteries usually die prematurely from sulphation build-up on internal lead plates; however, Mr Anselmi has a simple solution to the problem with his RECHARGE battery conditioning program.
“We have been saying for years that farmers are getting eight to 10 years in our battery conditioning program,” he said.
“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.
“In fact, our record is now 18 years old and still starting his tractor and after 18 years on the market in New Zealand and 13 years in Australia, I think we may do better yet.”
A RECHARGE treatment will dissolve the lead sulphate buildup turning those sulphur ions back into sulphuric acid holding electrons.
Sealed batteries can also be treated by simply drilling into each cell treating and reseal- ing with silicone, sika-flex or a plastic bung.
RECHARGE is also great for deep cycle batteries like forklifts, golf carts, scissor hoists and lighting system batteries.
“We are chemically reversing the sulphation build-up process, one chemical reaction to counter another,” Mr Anselmi explained.
“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 two to three years and keep them charged.”
Mr Anselmi and his partner, Debbie, will be at this year’s Henty Machinery Field Days on site V-1051.
“The 500ml farmer pack works out at $4.20 per car battery or $8.50 to treat an N-70.
“A more cost-effective two litre commercial pack is also available and can also be purchased online or on Ebay.
“As RECHARGE is acid based, it is dangerous goods and expensive to freight, so getting it at the field days is by far the cheapest option,” Mr Anselmi added.
