Default Battery additives

Has anyone tried adding a battery additive to revive failing batteries? Additives claim to neutralize the sulphur buildup and potentially restore battery life. For example - amazon.com/Liquid-Solution-Refurbish-Batteries

Smile Re: Battery additives

Try pouring it on your money and if it makes it multiply, that will tell you how good it will work in your batteries. Same principle, just money instead of batteries. In 50 years of being a grease monkey, I've never seen things like that work.

You may have a better chance with one of the new batterycharger/desulfators (sp.) than the stuff you are looking at. You can use the charger for other things also.

Modern Day Snake Oil! Or worse. I strongly recommend that you never add anything but distilled H20 to your batteries EVER.

only thing ever happen was a post melted cause i put a washer on and did not tighten it good .. DOH!

now the sad but good news ... a friend got a jacked up cart with 2010 Powertron batteries in it.. but he wanted Trojans so he gave me the '10 batteries and used my '06 "renewed batteries" as core turn in's
so now i have 2010 batteries FREE and when they start going bad i'll be doing the ol' battery renew trick again ... hell it kept a set of dead batteries going a year

going to do a little upgrading to the lights and other things ... will post up as things happen

I can say I've had pretty good luck with battery desulfators. I've gotten longer run times and long battery life. I've used the battery life saver on a few carts and it works pretty well. Unfortunately, I don't keep carts long enough to see how it works over the long term.

I had purchased a cart from someone who desulfated the batteries during the winter. The Trojans were 10 years old and ran really well. I wish I could not drive my cart long enough so I could put the batteries on a desulfator long term.
