Battery Life Saver

I am using an SAR V3 to regulate a 90 Amp Leece Neville on a Universal Diesel 5432. My 12 VDC house bank consists of 2 banks of 2 ea Trojan T105 6V golf cart batteries.

When I bought the second bank, the guy at the golf cart store, who sees a lot of batteries, showed me one of these:

He would not recommend one, but said he has heard nothing bad about them. Apparently they insert a square wave at the resonant frequency of lead sulfate crystals thereby breaking them up.

Snake oil or a worthwhile product?

Comments anyone?

Thanks, Ben

Lead sulfate crystals form during discharge and harden when left in a discharged state. That should be avoided.

Whether hardened crystals can be rejuvenated into useful material is a question not answered by any science we know about.
