Dutch mariner, Meijlink purchased three 12V Infinitum Desulfators from us back in July 2009 which he used for his yacht batteries. He purchased more a week ago for his friend and left this testimonial:
"A scrapped battery I purchased for A$5.00 in April 2012 is still functioning today!
My son and I have not bought a new battery for at least three years,
and none of our batteries have died since fitting the units."
Toyota Landcruiser and Scrapped Battery Optimised
As far as performance of the Infinitum desulfators, I have one on each of the two batteries in my Toyota Landcruiser. One of the batteries was about 5 years old and probably near the end of its life, when I fitted the first unit (desulphator) in March 2012. This battery is still starting the cruiser.
The other battery is one I picked up outside a tyre service for scrap price of $5.00. I immediately fitted a desulphator and it is still running my 12 volt fridge/freezer as well as auxiliary starting. That was in April 2012.
Solar Deep Cycle and Tractor Batteries Recovered
Testimonial update: We managed to get an update from Gerald from the last time he left a testimonial with us in June 6th, 2009. His purchase was made on February 27th, 2009. Here is what he had to say about his experience since then:
Note from Infinitum: We received this feedback from a customer from Australia who revived his deep cycle marine battery from the dump to a fully functioning battery! We particularly loved the candid way it was written and left it completely unedited:
We recently bought one of your 12V Infinitum Desulphators, intended for a former UK Colleague, but owing to the problems posting it to him in time for Christmas, we thought we’d give it a go ourselves!
ALWAYS a bit suspicious of much-vaunted claims, so to be honest we were not expecting anything really spectacular. Thought I’d try it out on an old (and rather abused) marine engine start battery which had been “living outdoors” for some time.
Although the electrolyte levels were OK, the battery wouldn’t accept ANY (and I really DO mean ANY) charge whatsoever, such that I had to keep it on trickle charge just to get the desulphator to work! Thought this would be a useful test of any capability, so left the charger and desulphator connected for two weeks, desulphating away happily.
At the end of the fortnight, disconnected the charger, and, surprise, the little green light stayed on – and kept staying on for a further 16 days! Upshot is we now have a seemingly fully functional battery that charges well (accepts a high charge current without overheating), retains the charge (for weeks), and can easily start a 4 litre marine diesel – and remember this battery was effectively “scrap”!
The Infinitum gadget is currently desulphating:
The Isuzu’s a 24 volt set up, and we’ll be buying your 24 volt version soon – and leaving it permanently connected to the engine start battery set.
We would be more than happy to let any other future customers know just how good this little gadget is – and please feel free to include this e-mail in your Customer Comments section!
Thanking you again for what is a surprisingly very effective little “box of tricks”
Best regards from us both,
