OBD-36 OnBoard Desulphator
Description: BatteryMINDer® OnBoard Desulphators With Battery and Charging System Indicator,36-Volt

The BatteryMINDer® OnBoard Desulphators are designed to desulphate* deep-cycle and starter lead-acid storage batteries, without plugging into a 120 Vac power source. Solar powered electrical systems, using deep-cycle batteries for storage, will significantly benefit when their batteries are free of sulphate. Vehicles, particularly multi-battery trucks, RVs and golf cars will also greatly benefit from sulphate-free batteries. The units utilize patented technology to produce a wide range of high frequency pulses known as RFP ™ (Random Frequency Pulsation) designed to dissolve both old long-established, and newly formed sulphate*.

RFP™ circuitry allows the OnBoard desulphator to sweep the entire frequency range known to cause sulphation crystal molecules to resonate, un-bond, and then safely dissolves them. The sulphuric acid, the main component in the sulphate crystals, is now free and returns to the battery’s electrolyte. As a result, the Specific Gravity (S.G.) of the electrolyte is now higher and able to generate more electrical energy-storage capacity, than the previously sulphated batteries. Considerably less charging-source energy (solar panels, generators, alternators, et al) and much faster recharge, to full capacity, can now be expected. This is significant in “off the grid” solar installations when solar exposure times are short and / or power demands are high.

Golf car and RV owners who do not use their units, for months at a time, will benefit significantly from OnBoard desulphation. When used simultaneously, with the original factory supplied golf-car charger or built-in RV converter-charger, our OnBoard units continuously “clean” the battery’s charge plates. With sulphate-free plates the reduced performance and life shortening affect of long-term storage will be minimized. Although our OnBoard units do not charge or maintain batteries, by enabling the batteries to accept full charges, each time they are recharged, the damaging affect of long-term non-use are significantly reduced. The use of a safe, maintenance charger is always recommended when extended storage is anticipated. (See our BatteryMINDer models 12248 (12-Volt), 24041 (24-Volt), 3603 (36-Volt), 4802 (48-Volt) for safe long-term maintenance) Note: The great majority of golf car factory supplied chargers turn off when batteries are supposedly fully charged. If they are sulphated, they cannot be recharged to 100%, until or unless they are sulphated. RV converters with a charger stage are notorious for overcharging batteries, when left on for long non-use periods. They too cannot charge sulphated batteries to 100% of their capacity.

Additional advantages of using sulphation-free batteries include eliminating or greatly reducing the need for “equalizing” deep-cycle flooded (filler-caps) batteries, reduced recharge time, while demanding less output energy from solar arrays. In fuel powered vehicles extended alternator and belt life can be expected, as the vehicle’s charging system no longer needs to work as hard trying to charge batteries that will not accept high alternator output current due to sulphation build-up. Better fuel economy can also be expected, as much lower amperage is now demanded from the alternator to keep clean, sulphate-free batteries fully charged. Lower alternator output current demands, translates to lower engine loads.
