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.
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.

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.
Hybrid vehicles are driven both by an electric motor as well as an internal combustion engine. While the electric motors are powered by Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries, hybrid fuel engines still require lead acid batteries to crank them. And just like any regular vehicle, these lead acid batteries sulfate and kill the battery prematurely. At the time of this article a replacement for a Prius C battery costs US$150.
With the Infinitum Desulfator the lifespan of the battery can be doubled which is a significant cost savings considering the desulfator is only a third of cost of the battery replacement.
Below is a quick and easy installation for the Toyota Prius C that will only take you about 5 minutes. All you need is the spanner that is located tool case in the trunk of the car.
The Toyota Vios is one of the most common sub compact cars in Asia. Installing the Infinitum desulfator in this car takes less than 5 minutes with rewards lasting beyond the age of the car.

As you can see in the image below, the desulfator cable is sufficiently long to reach the battery terminals. The desulfator unit is stuck on with the provided 3M double sided tape to the car's fuse box cover next to the battery. This will not impede any access to the car's electronics in the future as the cover is removed, the desulfator will still be connected to the battery with sufficient length of movement to rest the cover.
The reason why the desulfator is stuck on the fuse box cover instead of the battery is because the desulfator will outlast the battery a couple of times over. So you keep using the same unit over and over again, providing you with multiple times of savings.
Installing the Infinitum Battery Desulfator is a easy even for the non-technically inclined :).

Installing a desulfator* on a Peugeot 308 battery can be tricky as the battery is covered and the negative terminal concealed. There are two installation methods in this video which our users have sent us feedback on their own experience in the installation.
*The INFINITUM Desulfator works to revive dead batteries and maintain them to keep them in optimum condition and maximize its life span for up to 2 to 3 times.
