Questions & Answers:

For what accumulator types is PowerBatt suitable?

PowerBatt is intended for common lead-acid accumulators with sulphuric acid electrolyte. PowerBatt will continue to clean and recondition the accumulators (lead plates) for about 20 cycles of the battery, after application. At this point the battery will be back to or near "new battery" specs and lead plate condition.

Does PowerBatt work with non-functioning accumulators?

PowerBatt is designed as a maintainance additive for working batteries. However; it is sometimes possible to bring completely dead batteries back to operation, if the battery is otherwise in good condition. If accumulators (Lead Plates) are cracked or degraded too far, there is nothing that can be done to save the battery.

How often do I apply PowerBatt?

PowerBatt application is recommended once or twice per year depending on age, strength and intensity of battery use. Batteries in normal condition can take 1 dose per year or a half dose twice per year.

Does PowerBatt damage the accumulator?

When PowerBatt is dosed correctly and NOT applied to a dry cell, it does not damage the accumulator. The process of battery killing sulfate accretion can never be stopped, only cleaned, reconditioned and then slowed. Ultimately sulfation will end the batteries life. See label, QR code or training video for proper dosage. A little too much or not enough will not do any harm to accumulator.

Will PowerBatt help me, after I have forgotten to switch off the headlights?

No. PowerBatt application allows the battery to recapture ability of full charge and discharge by cleaning and reconditioning the accumulators (lead plates). Batteries will operate better in hot and cold temperatures.

When I applied PowerBatt, the accumulator frothed intensively.

What should I do? If a lot of froth is formed, it is a definate indication that the process is working, but you need to slow down the application to each cell. Sometimes a cell will take all 2 ounces at once, other times a slower application is needed.

When I applied PowerBatt, some cells boiled out. What should I do?

If the cells have boiled out, use a suitable material to carefully remove the escaped solution and dispose of it in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions for working with sulphuric acid. SLOW DOWN APPLICATION! A mixture of water and baking soda will neutralize the sulfuric acid.

Why does the accumulator warm up when PowerBatt is applied?

Warming of the accumulator during PowerBatt application is a result of the chemical reaction, cleaning and reconditioning.

Why should I operate the vehicle after PowerBatt application?

After PowerBatt application, electrolyte gets diluted. In order to achieve the original density of the electrolyte, the accumulator must be used.

Can I apply PowerBatt in the evening and use vehicle the next morning?

After PowerBatt application, we do not recommend letting the accumulator sit unused. If you cannot use the vehicle within 30 minutes after the chemical reaction has terminated, we recommend charging the accumulator with a standard charger.

Can I pour PowerBatt into the cell if I do not see the electrolyte?

NEVER pour PowerBatt into a dry cell! Add just enough distilled water to cover the lead plates. Then add your PowerBatt additive.

What should I do, when I cannot screw the closures out?

Do not apply PowerBatt. It may be a non-maintenance type of accumulator, for which PowerBatt is not intended.

Can I apply PowerBatt before I winterize for season end storage?

No. Wait until following season and apply PowerBatt when ready to put battery back into operation.

Can I apply PowerBatt during winter months?

Yes. If applying PowerBatt during winter months, it must be done above 32 degrees and preferrably not outdoors where the temperature will drop below freezing. A garage or shop is strongly recommended.
