BatteryMINDer 12 Volt 5 Watt Solar Charger
Increase Battery Life and Performance: Average battery life has become shorter as energy requirements have increased. Two phrases I hear most often are “My battery won’t take a charge” and “My battery won’t hold a charge”. Only 30% of batteries sold today reach the 48-month mark. In fact, 80% of all battery failure is related to sulfation buildup. This buildup occurs when the sulfur molecules in the electrolyte (battery acid) become so deeply discharged that they begin to coat the battery’s lead plates. Before long the plates become so coated that the battery dies. The causes of sulfation are numerous. Let me list some for you.
Every element known to man has a magnetic moment at a resonant frequency; i.e., a point at which the chemical bonds that hold the molecules together to form a crystal can be broken. Sulfation, the number one cause of early battery failure, is simply crystals of lead sulphate (PbSO4), which have formed on the lead storage plates in a lead-acid type battery.
When a battery is improperly charged or allowed to self-discharge, as occurs during storage/non- use, these crystals build up on the battery storage plates preventing the battery from ever being fully charged and therefore unable to deliver their full power/capacity.
VDC Electronics, Inc. has created a simple method of generating the required resonant frequency (3.26 megahertz pulse) to breakdown the lead sulphate crystals, allowing the molecules to return to the battery’s electrolyte. By creating a waveform with required 3.26 MHz frequency, coupled with a very fast rise time and a high amplitude pulse, more energy is developed to breakdown sulphation than by any other method believed to exist. On February 6, 2001 this unique approach was granted a US Patent.
The BatteryMINDer 12 Volt 5 Watt system will deliver up to 2 amps of charge current per sunny day. This system is ideal for battery maintenance and long term battery recovery. #SCC005 WILL NOT QUICKLY RECHARGE GOLF CART OR TROLLING MOTOR SIZED BATTERIES!

If product is ordered via Air Delivery, a surcharge must be added for oversize package. This is one of the best buys you can make to maintain and recondition battery(s). BatteryMINDer uses a “Smart” Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) solar charge controller. This patented technology applies a high frequency pulse circuit that continually desulfates the batteries storage plates assuring maximum performance. Keeps batteries fully charged indefinitely without ever overcharging. Includes Solar panel, charger controller and battery condition indicator.

Reviews and Ratings
Just be careful how you run your wire in your engine so it doesn't get clipped by your hood. Happened to me once, that's what I get for doing it in the dark.
