On very rare occasions, we do receive feedback from our customers that they're unable to recover their batteries even when using our Infinitum Desulfators. In most cases, the battery is simply too old and unrecoverable*. There are also those who cannot desulfate their batteries because an inadequate rated Amp charger was used. Some very sulfated batteries will require a higher Amp charger to 'force' a charge into the battery. This is because the high buildup of lead sulfate crystals on the battery plates, builds an insulating barrier preventing the charge to occur.
How you can recover 'stubborn' batteries:
CAUTION: This form of battery reconditioning should only be done by a professional as the battery should be monitored and if done incorrectly, the battery may over heat and explode.
It is important to know that desulfators work to recover batteries from sulfation but not the loss of active material that occurs through aging. The above mentioned charging method will only be successful for batteries that are relatively new with some active material still left in it. A battery with a desulfator installed from day one will still eventually expire due to aging which also means the depletion of active material within the battery. The difference with a desulfator is that you get a battery with its life span optimized up to 2 to 3 times.
