How does the Megapulse Technology work?
Megapulse Green Energy is a patented process that eliminates electrical system faults due to voltage losses created by battery plate degradation as a result of batteries simply being in service. Megapulse reverses degradation allowing the battery to power the electrical system at full voltage.
What are the benefits of using Megapulse Technology?
An efficient electrical system working within design parameters (full voltage), results in fewer battery replacements, a decrease in maintenance costs, better fuel efficiency and a reduction to your carbon footprint. It helps you save money, save time and gives you reliability and peace of mind.
How is Megapulse Technology different to other Pulse products?
The best way to answer this question is to say that in order to be able to sell to OEM manufacturers such as Volvo, Scania and Mercedes as well as commercial fleets, multiple certifications are required to prove Quality, Safety and Efficacy of the Technology. This is something that many cheap copies and knock off products will never achieve. We offer a 10 Year Full Replacement Global Warranty and we have achieved ZERO defect and failure rate since 2011.
My charger has a maintenance program built in, does this not achieve the same thing?
A direct comparison can not be made because our technology is an on-board 24/7 conditioning technology whereas a charger limits you to being stationary, but more importantly these chargers do not employ Pulse Technology instead they pulse the DC charge on and off very quickly making them very efficient chargers but in no way can they achieve what our patented dual pulse technology can and they have no impact on on-board electrical systems.
How much longer will batteries last with Megapulse Technology?
Battery life varies depending on many different factors. By using Megapulse Green Energy your batteries will last up to three times longer. There is enough reactive material in a battery to perform the energy transfer process for upwards of 10 years, but Degradation prevents that from happening. By eliminating Degradation, your batteries and electrical system achieve maximum voltage and maximum service life. Our patented technology has been evaluated by CSIRO, Unitech Energy, Volvo Sweden, Scania Sweden and Mercedes Norway as well as many commercial fleet operators.
Will Megapulse Technology help electrical components?
By maintaining batteries in peak condition, alternators do not have to work as hard. Healthy batteries start engines easier, so your starter motor will also last longer. An added benefit is maximum fuel economy and reduced Greenhouse emissions due to your vehicle's electrical system running at maximum voltage.
Will Megapulse Technology work on Gel-Cell or AGM batteries?
Megapulse Green Energy works with all batteries except lithium and nicad.
Will Megapulse Technology work with different voltage systems?
Yes, Megapulse Green Energy is a multi-voltage, auto-sensing and auto-setting device. One model can be used with all DC systems from 6 volt to 48 volt. Megapulse Green Energy can also be installed in series, using multiple units to condition large battery banks with voltages above 48 volts. For example, a 144 volt system can be fitted with three units working at 48 volts. Please contact us for specific advice for your installation.
Can Megapulse be connected while charging a battery?
Yes Megapulse works in both the charge and discharge cycle and is completely independent of the charge system therefore unaffected regardless of the charge coming in or going out of the battery.
Will Megapulse drain my battery if it is not being charged?
Megapulse uses 10 milliamp per hour and a total of 240 milliamp per day, plus the current 1.3 version has a built in automatic low voltage disconnect at 50% depth of discharge, therefore you will always be able to start your engine. Obviously the low voltage disconnect will only take place if a vehicle is left sitting idle for extended periods of 8 weeks or more.
Does sulphation build-up occur on new batteries?
Battery plate degradation begins the minute a battery is cycled and the rate of degradation will vary depending on battery usage and condition. It will occur in batteries that are used infrequently and batteries that are used daily. New batteries may already be degraded when they are installed on your vehicle as a result of self discharge which occurs even if the battery is not connected, so new batteries sitting on a store shelf for months can suffer from Degradation.
Can Megapulse Technology be used on more than one battery at a time?
Megapulse Green Energy is designed to work with a battery, or a bank of batteries, of up to 1500 ampere hours (Ah) per unit. For banks above 1500 Ah, adding further units in series will increase the rating by 1500 Ah per unit. Please contact us for specific installation instructions.
Can Megapulse Technology be moved from battery to battery?
Megapulse Green Energy can be moved from battery to battery (minimum three months), but we recommend permanent installation. Degradation happens 24-hours a day, from the moment acid is added to the battery. Although you can use our technology part-time, a permanent installation will give maximum result because it eliminates existing Degradation and prevents it from re-occurring 24/7 when permanently installed.
Is Megapulse Technology a charger?
No. Megapulse Green Energy is a maintenance system. It will not recharge a discharged battery. It is a battery desulfator which rejuvenates sick batteries by reversing degradation. Megapulse can be used in conjunction with any voltage regulated charging system including AC-DC, DC-DC, Wind and Solar.
Will Megapulse Technology harm vehicle computers or electronics?
Our technology has been tested by Volvo, Scania, Mercedes, Unitech Energy and CSIRO and was found to be safe on all DC electrical systems used in vehicles, vessels, equipment and crafts including on-board computers and electronics.
How does Megapulse Technology impact the environment?
Megapulse Green Energy helps protect the environment from the hazards of discarded lead-acid batteries by reducing the number of batteries produced, recycled or dumped in landfills every year. The damage caused by lead and sulphuric acid leaking from batteries that have been disposed of inappropriately is alarming. Even small amounts of lead can cause severe damage to animals and humans who ingest it. The most effective way of reducing the number of discarded batteries is to keep them in service longer. Equally as important is the reduction of Greenhouse pollutants and carbon achieved when vehicles run at maximum efficiency, which is the result of electrical systems working at full voltage enabled by a healthy battery.
