Working of Maxlife Battery Additive

Before we know how this Additive works, Let’s 1st know about the Working of Battery which will Clear you the exact working of Maxlife Battery Additive.

If you check the history of the battery then you know that your battery is designed to give you life of 6-8 yr. Then why your battery is dead in just 2-3 yr of its life. The Answer to the question is Sulfation. To know know more about sulfation we have to understand the working of battery.

Working of Battery

Battery Consist of 2 plates +ve (PbO2) and –ve (Pb) and electrolyte H2SO4. When Battery is new it look like of above diagram i.e. Clear Plates and Acid is Dissolved in water.

Discharging Process

When we use the battery or we say when inverter is used for Backup the Acid in water reacts with Pb and PbO2 plates to Produce electricity in this process the Pb and PbO2 plates reacts with acid to form PbSo4 as shown in the figure above And when the battery is fully consumed or discharged then all the acid in the water is deposited on the plates of the battery. You can check this by checking the gravity of the water which is very low when the battery is fully discharged.

Charging Process

During Charging of the battery reaction is opposite i.e. Acid Deposited on Plates is dissolved into the water which means PbSO4 is again Converted into PbO2 and Pb . You can check this by checking the gravity of the battery for 6 months when we charge the battery the plates are fully revived i.e. fully converted into normal condition

Due to above you get full Backup with in the 6 months of operation of the battery

After 6 -8 months of operation of battery these Lead-Sulfate (Layer of PbSO4 ) crystal becomes permanent and doesn’t Convert into PbO2 or Pb even after the battery is fully charges this is called sulfation of the battery as show in figure below. Even this sulfation sometime comes at the terminals of the battery.

Whats is sulfation

When hard crystals of Lead-Sulfate (Thin Layer of PbSO4) are deposited on the plates of a battery during the discharge process and are not converted back to lead oxide even after charging the battery is known as Sulfation. Because hard lead sulfate is a non-conductive material, when it coats the electrode plates, it causes a reduction in the area needed for the electro-chemical reactions. It also reduces the batteries’ active materials needed to maintain a high capacity. This Sulfation process goes on increasing day by day and end results in dead battery.

There are three types of lead sulfate.

  • One is soft lead sulfate that decomposes with a regular charge. (During 1-6 Months)
  • The second is hard lead sulfate that will not Decompose by our Regular chargers or will only be decomposed by Special Charges( comes in existence after 6 Months ). At this stage our Additive works and Decompose these sulphate crystal Easily.
  • The last is a very hard lead sulfate that fails to decompose even equalization charging and Battery become in operational

Maxlife Battery Additive Working

We developed a Additive in collaboration with Korean Based Company, which will help in removing the sulfation from the Battery plates. Our Additives will react with the 2nd level sulfate crystals present on the plates and free up pates to make lead oxide material again on plates. Once the material is converted into lead oxide we get the enough area for the reaction which results in proper functioning of the battery thus extends the life of your battery.
