Battery Facts of Life
 

HOW TO MAKE IT LAST LONGEST - KEEP YOUR BATTERY 100% CHARGED AT ALL TIMES AND NEVER ALLOW IT TO GO FLAT.

PEOPLE ARE FORGETFUL! THEY FORGET TO HOOK UP THEIR MAINTENANCE CHARGER WHEN PARKING THE BIKE. RESULT? BATTERY GOES FLAT & EVENTUALLY DIES.

WHY? AS A BATTERY DISCHARGES THE ACID SEPARATES INTO WATER & SULFATES. 
WATER FREEZES & EXPANDS & COULD BUCKLE THE PLATES OR EVEN CRACK THE CASING. 
SULFATES ARE ATTRACTED TO LEAD. THE LONGER YOU LEAVE IT THE GREATER THE BUILD-UP OF SULFATION ON THE PLATES UNTIL THE BATTERY CANNOT ACCEPT NORMAL CHARGE.

SOME ORDINARY SMARTCHARGERS NOW ‘PRETEND’ TO ‘ELIMINATE’ SULFATION. THEY RELY ON YOU TO KEEP THE CHARGER HOOKED UP! FACT IS: THEY CANNOT ‘REVERSE’ SULFATION!

THE ONLY CHARGER THAT CAN REVERSE SULFATION BUILDUP IN A ‘GOOD’ BATTERY (NO MECHANICAL DAMAGE) AND GET IT TO ACCEPT CHARGE AGAIN IS OPTIMATE.
