Thumbs up Battery addative

Hey guys no problem to resolve just wanted to share some experience i had with adding an addative i purchesed from ebay to my 8V cart batteries.

So quick back ground i purchesed a 2010 CC precednent and it had labled 11 batteries, they were shocking they wouldnt do 18 holes with one person in the cart without dying. So i was going to buy new batteries, but before i did i saw an addative you can get from ebay for $10 that you put in the batteries and it is a money back thing it will repair the batteries back to a point.

I thought what the hell there shot ducks anyways might as well try.

After following the instructions i put the batteries back in and went for a game, they lasted 18 holes but only just, once again charged them up and then compared the specific gravity to before i started and it had improved a fair bit. Went and played again and still strong after 18 so went for a bit more of a drive and 27 holes latter they started to die (I prob went a little be to far into the discharge state but wanted to see what they had).

I let the cart sit for an hour once finished and checked the voltage it was 47.5 so the batteries were at about 40% (once again to far i know)

The addative worked well i am no longer going to replace my batteries i will see how good they go and once they die again i will try the addative again and see if they restore again.

This is only how it went for me i dont recommend trying this if you batteries are not at a point where you are going to replace them, i used this as a last resort and just wanted you guys to know that someone of them do work sometimes.

Let us know your results over the next several months as well. I agree there is no silver bullet to fix old batteries, but if you can get a few more months out of them for $10 sounds like it would be worth it.

What was the name or link to the additive that you used?

Thanks!

Did 18 Holes today with the extra weight of 130KG fellow golfer and his golf bag was still pulling stong after the 18 holes and had a 47.6V reading but that was without letting it rest so i think it may have been better again so getting better with every drive.

I think, because of the way the link was generated that it (ebay) thinks your in Australia.

I'm curious if the chemistry here is the mg added or the simple fact that distilled water has an electrical conductivity of 0 and adding any mineral salt will increase the ec.
