Default Battery Saver

Does anyone use one of these? Do they work?

These have been discussed here in the past, mixed opinions. I've researched them on a few other EV websites and they are getting positive reviews.

With a 60 Day money back guarantee, what do you have to lose?

I'm in the same situation, 3 yr. old Trojans, well maintained, (and well used) but will only charge up to 6.2 volts a piece and seem to lose charge rather quickly....even if it bought me a year it would be something.

If it had a 60 month guarantee then I would strongly consider it

I can't believe nobody has tried it, or something similar? I guess if you could afford it, you would rather just buy new batteries when they wear out. If you can't afford it, you probaby need it and would benefit from it (if it works).

Such is life

Isn't that always the case

If you are going with (dare I say it) sam's club batteries, or if you "know a guy" that deals in batteries, you can get 2 new batteries for the cost of this device. (set money aside, repeat for next two months, buy new batteries - give or take a few bucks...)

I've been eating off the dollar menu, saving my lunch money to save up for new batteries. That's what happens when you get married.

I was wondering if it was worth it as well and just not a snake oil product. I guess proper maintenance is the best in the long run. Just think when I buy new batteries in the spring and my wife see's the bill I will just plug her up to my cart and they will be charged in no time All jokes aside, I did set money aside for new batteries

Not knowing a whole lot about the chemical composition of lead acid batteries, I find it difficult to understand how lead sulfate can be " reconverted " back to lead. Everything I have read about batteries here is stating how easily batteries can sulfate, and how it ruins them over time! My honest feeling on these devices is that if they really worked, everyone would have one and no one would ever have to buy new batteries! We all know that this is not the case!

This technology could be EASILY incorporated into a standard GC charger for fleet sales/leases, yet it hasn't. I wonder why.............

Tom, I am aware of that unit, but the point was that the OEM's don't seem to think it is important enough to utilize. Kinda says something....

Now if TROJAN got into the charger market AND included a "desulfator" feature I might get on board. But I don't see that happening.
