Infinitum Desulfators have been proven to double the lifespan of batteries since 2006. A customer recently sent us images of the installation of his desulfator on his Toyota Landcruiser.
The installation is simple and quick. You just need the small spanner that comes wit your truck tool set and a cloth to clean the surface where you plan to stick the desulfator on. As you can see in the image, the desulfator was installed on the air filter cover which is located next to the battery and not on it as the desulfator will outlast the battery and is reusable.
Sulfation which is the cause of premature battery failure occurs with the growth and accumulation of sulfate crystals on the lead plates inside a battery. Over weeks and months, this growth hardens and the active material that is needed for the battery to work is stuck in an unusable crystalline form. This problem occurs in all weather conditions but more so in warmer climates. The customer who sent these images resides in the Lagos, Nigeria where the warm tropical weather is experienced year round.

Fish farmer, Uthan Chuat purchased Infinitum Desulfators from us to optimize the fourteen 12V Deep Cycle batteries in his solar powered battery bank used in his fish farm off the shores of Malaysia. The fish farm which also doubles up as his home, is completely off-grid being powered solely by the sun. Being close to the equator provides good sun all year round with only cloudy days being the exception.
Desulfators are used here to optimize the lifespan of the batteries. The lifespan of the batteries are also optimized from the relatively cooler conditions being above the water despite of the warmer climate in the tropics.
All fourteen of Uthan's 12V batteries are setup in parallel in this 12V solar installation. The charge controller maintains the charge at above 13V which is more than sufficient to keep the desulfators working as long as there is sunlight. Below is a picturesque view of his floating fish farm.
A customer from Philippines sent us images of his desulfator installation to optimize the performance and lifespan of his solar battery bank made up of 40 12V sealed lead acid batteries. He purchased ten 12V Infinitum Desulfators to achieve this purpose. In this 48V solar battery bank system, there are 4 rows of 10 12V batteries connected in parallel. Each row of 10 batteries are maintained and optimized by a couple of 12V Infinitum Desulfators. For the best results however, we recommend using one desulfator for each 12V battery or a cost effective alternative where one desulfator is shared among one or three batteries on a rotation basis of 2 weeks or 1 month.
1. Use the desulfator as soon as you can & do so Continuously
You will enjoy the best results in battery lifespan optimization the earlier you install the desulfator. So install your Infinitum desulfator as soon as you can. All batteries will eventually expire even with the use of desulfators, the difference with desulfators is that the lifespan of the battery would be optimized.
Prevention is always better than cure. Instead of waiting for your battery to show signs of a performance drop or even failure before you consider getting one or installing the desulfator that you already purchased.
The Infinitum Desulfator is designed to shatter the existing sulfate crystal build up as well as to prevent its growth, so you should keep the desulfator installed throughout the lifespan of the battery to enjoy maximum results.
2. Use it even for aged batteries
As batteries approach its end of life, the probability of optimization or recovery gets slimmer. Should you have a battery that is relatively aged and have yet to install a desulfator, we still recommend to start using it as there is still a chance of optimization or recovery.
For faster results, install it on your battery with an external smart battery charger (with an amp rating that is recommended for your battery). The battery will take about 2 to 3 days to fully desulfate with a continuous charge. The process takes about 2 weeks for a vehicle that is driven daily or in a solar operation with at least 4 hours of good sun per day.
Since Infinitum Desulfators are robust and reusable, your purchase is never a waste as the same unit can be used on the next replacement battery and the next after that. We have users using the same desulfator for over 12 years, during which time, it would have optimized several batteries.
All solar batteries degenerate in performance and lifespan from a process called sulfation. Sulfation is a build up of an insulating layer of spongy sulfate crystals which occurs whenever a battery discharges. The live of the battery or active material become lodged in an unusable crystalline form. The process reverses whenever the batteries are charged. However since the amount of time where a battery is discharging is higher than when it is charged, over time the sulfate crystals harden and cannot return as active material even with charging.
A customer from Canada, Joseph Wong, recently sent us images of his installation of four 24V Infinitum Desulfators on his 24V solar battery bank made up of eight 12V batteries. We see here four parallel rows of two 12V batteries in series. One 24V desulfator is installed on each two 12V batteries in series.
Below is the image of the actual installation, an illustration of that installation, an example of a 48V battery bank setup with 24V Infinitum Desulfators as well as a snapshot of his comment on this article in which he mentioned that there was an apparent improvement after using the desulfators for three weeks.
We received a number of images from a customer recently installed the Infinitum Desulfator he purchased for his 2007 4WD Mitsubishi Triton truck.
The installation gallery shows how simple it is to perform the installation. Find a place close to the battery to stick the desulfator unit on. Making sure that the surface is clean and free from dirt or dust. The Infinitum Desulfator comes with industrial strength 3M double sided tape that is already stuck on the backside of the unit. Press firmly on the desulfator unit after it is stuck so that the double sided tape properly adheres to the surface you have selected.
In this instant, the customer chose to stick the unit on the fuse box cover which is located right next to the battery. The cables are then connected to the battery terminals, matching the color on the cables. There is no need to disconnect the battery during the installation. Loosen the nut and slip in the fork lugs and tighten again, ensuring that the installation is firm. You will only need to completely remove the nut if you purchased the model with the ring lug.

We celebrate our 14th year this year in business. It has been a challenging yet an adventure we never thought possible. Till date our products are used in 129 countries all over the world, some of which we never knew existed and some so small you'll very likely not see it in this map.
The robust construction of our products allow them to be used in the harshest conditions you can imagine on the planet. From the coldest regions in Canada and Europe to the rust inducing conditions found in marine applications, the Infinitum Desulfator has not only withstood these extreme conditions but have stood the test of time with customers still using our products they purchased form us more than a decade ago.
Below is a snapshot of the countries where Infinitum Desulfators are used, being marked in green. Looking to be a distributor of our product in your country? Simply click here to contact us.
Most batteries in warmer climates like the one found in the tropical climate of Malaysia usually last 1 to 2 years. The doubling of the battery life span that Dr. Nizam enjoyed from the single Infinitum Desulfator unit he purchased from us not only saved one but two batteries and will continue to do so for a few more batteries.
Below are images he sent us:
We received this product review from Joe recently. Find the full review below:
In an effort to reduce battery replacement cost, a poultry meat distribution company based in Malaysia had their trucks fitted with the Infinitum Desulfators. Though the trucks are used more regularly than domestic vehicles, the trucks are still parked longer than they are used. This results in the build up of crystallised sulfation that kills batteries prematurely.
Now with the 24V desulfator installed, the two 12V batteries set in series will not only perform better but will have its lifespan optimised. Below are images of the installation on one of those trucks which took about 5 minutes to perform.
