Studies have shown that vehicles spend a substantial percentage of time parked rather than being driven. The calculations were made based upon the number of hours that the average car is in motion. Subtract that from the average lifespan and you get the percentage of parking time.
The Royal Automobile Club (RAC) Foundation in UK reported in 2012 that the typical UK car is parked 96.5% of the time.
According to the 1995 UITP Millennium Cities Database, the percentage of cars parked in 84 cities around the world was 95.8%, with cars being in motion for 61 minutes a day.
In Singapore, the percentage time a car is parked is 94% followed by Seoul and China with 92.3% and 89.4% respectively.
How Longer Parking Time Affects You
Automotive batteries discharge as soon as they are parked. During which time a degenerative process occurs also known as sulfation.
What is Sulfation?
Sulfation begins with the formation of spongy lead sulfate on the negative and positive plates within the battery. This however is converted back to lead and active material during charging.
As studies have shown, the number of hours a battery discharges far outweighs the number of hours it is charged, as a result the spongy lead sulfate formation eventually crystallizes and can no longer be converted back to lead and active material, the very thing batteries need to function. The result? Premature battery failure.
What is the solution?
Infinitum Desulfators have been proven to work to revive batteries though the shattering of lead sulfate crystals and dissolving them back as active material, thereby maximizing the lifespan of the battery.

"Up to 84% of batteries fail prematurely from sulfation"
Lead sulfation actually starts when you remove the charging voltage from a fully charged lead-acid battery. Though the lead sulfate crystals are converted back to lead during the normal charging cycle, the real question is, if all of the lead sulfate crystals are not turned back into lead, how long does it take before they become so hard that they can not be converted?
The answer is that varies–it could be weeks or months and depends on a number of factors such as the quality of the lead, temperature, plate chemistry, porosity, Depth-of-Discharge (DoD), electrolyte stratification, and so on.
How Sulfation Accumulate In Batteries
During the normal discharge process, lead and sulfur combine into soft lead sulfate crystals are formed in the pores and on the surfaces of the positive and negative plates inside a lead-acid battery. When a battery is left in a discharged condition, continually undercharged, or the electrolyte level is below the top of the plates or stratified, some of the soft lead sulfate re-crystallizes into hard lead sulfate. It cannot be reconverted during subsequent recharging. This creation of hard crystals is commonly called permanent or hard “sulfation”. When it is present, the battery shows a higher voltage than it’s true voltage; thus, fooling the voltage regulator into thinking that the battery is fully charged. This causes the charger to prematurely lower it’s output voltage or current, leaving the battery undercharged.
Sulfation accounts for approximately 84% of the lead-acid battery failures that are not used at least once per week. The longer sulfation occurs, the larger and harder the lead sulfate crystals become. The positive plates will be light brown and the negative plates will be dull, off white. These crystals lessen a battery’s capacity and ability to be recharged. This is because deep cycle and some starting batteries are typically used for short periods, vacations, weekend trips, etc., and then are stored the rest of the year to slowly self-discharge. Starting batteries are normally used several times a month, so sulfation rarely becomes a problem unless they are undercharged or the plates are not covered with electrolyte.
Unknown to many, 84% of automotive batteries die prematurely due to sulfation. Sulfation is a destructive forming of lead sulfate crystals on battery lead plates within a battery which eventually kills it prematurely.
