If a 12V lead-acid battery sits with a voltage below 12.3V, (normal use) sulfur crystals will begin to form on the internal lead plates.

This crystal growth decreases the battery’s ability to hold a charge; and eventually makes the battery unusable.

Temperatures over 70F degrees accelerate crystallization buildup and sulphated battery plates is the primary cause of poor battery performance.

Normal recharging converts soft, recently formed crystals back to its component of pure sulfuric acid. As batteries age the sulphate crystals become larger and harder thus making charging less effective.
Crystals also shortens the battery’s use between charges .

A battery desulphator sends high frequency radio waves through the battery to create a vibration resonance that will break up the crystals.

And a battery desulphator with advanced electronics will remove ALL the sulphate crystals not just one size.

The better more expensive desulphating units use MULTI-FREQUENCY pulses of Radio waves to set up an oscillation (vibration ) which jars, crushes, grinds and dissolves ALL SIZE sulphide crystals so they can be recombined into the sulphuric acid of the battery.

This action is similar to an ultrasonic cleaner used to vibrate jewelry clean.
We at xxxxxxx do not advise buying desulphators in the $100 range as they are not multi frequency and only dissolve certain size crystals leaving the rest to ruin your battery.
The bottom line is a good Desulphator can actually DOUBLE you battery’s output and useful life.
Besides the multi frequency type also look for one that turns on automatically when your battery charger turns on . What we call , “install it and forget it“.

no experience with LVS. i've read numerous accounts of less than stellar customer service so i haven't really given them a serious look. i did see that charger a few months ago and thought it looked like a ok deal.

i do believe that electronic desulfation works. i recall reading that they are not nearly as effective when used in a series string though... never tried personally.

I've been using one of their chargers for about a month now, batteries also a month old...too early to tell if the desulphation function works. This charger was referred by a friend who's been one for a while now, so I guess they're decent.

I did think it was odd that they have a website and they charger more on there than on ebay, and they basically tell you don't bother calling them!

The only thing I wished it had was an amp meter.

They lowered the price $35...so that sucks for me!

One other thing about the LVS chargers that is important to guys like me that are still in the junk cart rejuvenation stage - they don't need to see 80% -90% of bank charge state to begin charging. That said, I am ordering one today.
