Title: Anyone heard of the Battery "Equaliser"??
Post by: Roc on April 30, 2001, 05:15:08 AM
I saw an ad in the latest USPS ENSIGN about an additive you put into your battery electrolyte solution.  It dissolves any sulfation on the plates and prevents new deposits from forming.  It supposed to reduce charging time and increase discharging time.  Any electrical gurus out there that might comment??

I have been told and have read in several sources that you should never add anything to a battery except pure distilled water.  Equalization is a cycle of controlled overcharging that returns the sulpher to solution (sulphuric acid).  What you do not want is the sulphur accumulated on the plates to drop to the bottom as a slurry.  Maybe it works fine, and maybe it dosn't, and maybe it is harmful to the battery.  IMHO, that's 66% against without knowing anything about the product.
