Question Battery desulfator

Does anyone have any experiences in using a battery desulfator? My batteries sat for a little too long and I think this could help. Wanted to get some input before ordering.

I have a 2002 CC 48v. All of the batteries test "good" but aren't charging as much as I would like. Do you think it is worth the money? Could it also increase the life of my batteries?

I also found this one on Amazon. Better price and still has decent reviews. I just don't know if they all do the same thing but just different name brands. Seems to be the same concept but I have no idea...

I use the 48v Battery Minder for winter storage - and slow charge mid week in summer, but haven't abused the batteries so I really can't say much about the de-sulphation claims. The theory is often disputed, since most battery abuse in golf carts (eg. low water, high heat, loose connections, imbalanced packs and zero charging for months on end) damages the batteries beyond just sulphation on the plates.

I'm counting on it being good for my batteries - given the constant float charge - which is a feature of all good quality computer based chargers for flooded batteries these days. The battery minder has a temperature sensor and floats cold batteries at a higher voltage (and hot batteries at a lesser voltage). That just seems like a good feature to me; that most "minders" don't have (but I store outside in very cold temps).

EDIT: The second link you posted is NOT a charger - its a device that is supposed to be wired in and introduce pulses to your batteries full time (unless disconnected). There are lots of that type device around - some with extravagant claims. Wouldn't be useful for long term storage - it actually draws power - although long term storage wasn't in your first question.

I am happy with my 48v Battery Minder. had it for four months. On short trips 5 miles or less I use it to charge the batteries instead of OEM Yamaha 48 volt charger which seems to boil the batteries. Over 5 miles I plug in my Yamaha OEM 48 volt charger until fully charged and then leave 48v Battery Minder on full-time

I use a Save-A-Battery charger/maintainer/desulfator. Works like a charm. Does not draw power from the pack. This is the second cart I have used one on.
