For individuals and families with a need to charge and maintain multiple 12-Volt lead-acid batteries, Xtreme Charge® by PulseTech Products Corporation recently introduced a kit allowing users to automatically maintain and desulfate up to eight batteries at a time.
 
The 8-Station QuadLink Charger Kit (X2-QL4-K2), MSRP $399.95  includes (1) Dual-Station Xtreme Charge® Battery Charger and Desulfator (X2), (2) QuadLink (XC-QL4) four-station multipliers, (1) 12V battery tester, (10) 2’ battery leads with lugs, (2) 2’ battery lead with clips, (8) 5’ extension leads and (4) 25’ extension leads – everything you need to maintain eight 12V batteries individually or in 24V, 36V & 48V series configurations.   The kit can be used to power and maintain everything from autos and light trucks; vocational, public transportation and emergency vehicles; heavy-duty construction and off-road vehicles; warehouse equipment as well as long distance semis.
 
  • The Xtreme Charge® Battery X2 Charger and Desulfator monitors, charges and maintains all types of 12-Volt lead-acid batteries (VRLA, AGM or flooded batteries). This battery charger makes maintenance and bulk charging simple with proprietary algorithms and microprocessor controlled technology that measures voltage and current to determine the proper operating charge. The variable float charge, of this battery charger, improves battery condition by increasing the charge rate safely to optimal levels and protecting batteries from being overcharged.
 
  • The two QuadLinks™ turn the Xtreme Charge Battery Charger and Desulfator into an 8-station maintenance charger, automatically splitting and distributing all of the charger’s maintenance capabilities into 10-minute sequencing segments making remembering to switch your battery charger back and forth between batteries in storage obsolete. Cycle rotation will continue indefinitely without overcharging – maintaining the charge of all four batteries for you automatically. For best results, batteries should start off in a fully charged state. 
 
  • The QuadLink™ can be used with virtually any brand charger using eight amps, but only PulseTech’s maintenance chargers offer the exclusive Pulse Technology®, a patented system unique in its ability to reduce the buildup of sulfation on battery plates resulting in the battery working at peak efficiency. Studies have shown that Pulse Technology® extends battery life up to five times.
 
  • The XC-822-TEST 12-Volt battery tester quickly indicates a 12-Volt lead-acid battery’s state of charge at 100%, 75%, 50% or 25%. It’s the perfect tester to determine if a battery needs to be charged before being attached to the QuadLink Charger Kit.
 
“This new kit offers the most effective method to maintain multiple batteries— something most commercial managers and collectors could use, not only to improve battery performance but to help the budget by greatly extending battery life, reducing the quantity of new battery purchases and cutting down on the number of batteries disposed of,” said Rick Miller, Vice-President of Sales for PulseTech Products, a company that has been maximizing battery performance while minimizing battery-related expenses for individuals, companies, fleets and military forces since 1994.
 
The kit, according to Miller, is extremely easy to assemble and use.
 
“Set up takes just a few minutes and this state-of-the-art battery charger automatically knows what to do so you don’t have to be a battery expert to use it,” he said. “Unlike other smart chargers on the market, you don’t need to select the battery type or the proper charge rate for the battery to avoid the risk of unsafe or improper charging.”

This kit, added Miller, has the ability to not only maintain as many as eight individual batteries, but can also maintain up to four 24V commercial systems composed of two 12V batteries connected in series or 12V batteries in 36 and 48V series connected configurations. This versatile kit has both consumer and commercial applications allowing you to maintain multiple batteries at once saving you both time and money.
 
Miller said a quick disconnect feature allows users to permanently attach lugs to the battery and easily switch between lugs and clamps. The status light column shows users when the unit power is on, pulsing and charging. The battery light column indicates the percentage of the battery’s state of charge – 25%, 50%, 75% or 100%.
