SOUTHLAKE, Texas — PulseTech Products has developed a solar-powered solution to continually charge, maintain and significantly extend the normal lifecycles of 12-volt and 24-volt batteries, company officials said.
Multiple school systems and commercial fleet operators have partnered with PulseTech to install solar products designed for any 12-volt or 24-volt battery — available in several versions.
A popular choice is the SP-5, which provides a full 5 watts of power in a compact, durable solar panel, according to the company. It offers clean, renewable energy for vehicles that are stored outside and unable to hook up to outlets. Half the size of comparable solar chargers with multiple installation options, the SP-5 replaces the power loss from electrical accessories that occurs even when the ignition is turned off, and its patented Pulse Technology removes damaging sulfate crystals from the battery plates, company officials said.
“Anytime the sun is out, these durable, solar-based products apply PulseTech’s patented one-two punch: a charge combined with its patented high-frequency Pulse Technology, to maintain and condition your vehicle or equipment battery while in use or while sitting idle,” said Rick Miller, sales manager at PulseTech Products.
Miller added that PulseTech’s exclusive, patented Pulse Technology cleans (desulfates) battery plates and brings the battery to a like-new state capable of holding a full charge. The combination has proven to extend 12-volt and 24-volt lead acid battery life up to five times what is typical, according to the company.
