To better service those needing to charge and maintain more than one battery at a time, PulseTech Products Corporation has introduced the Xtreme Charge X2, a ruggedly designed dual-station 12-volt maintenance charger.
Most households today employ multiple 12-volt batteries used in automobiles, light trucks, motorcycles, boats, lawn and garden tractors and off-roaders. In situations like these use of a single-station maintenance charger although possible, requires more user intervention to support the ongoing needs of today's power hungry and seasonally used vehicle batteries. The new X2 makes routine multiple battery care a reality and provides consumers with the highest battery performance and extended useful life.
PulseTech Products Corporation, which last year introduced the highly successful Xtreme Charge, the world's first true Next Generation 12-volt battery charger, has responded to customer requests for a dual station charger that will charge, maintain and desulfate all 12-volt lead-acid batteries-two at a time. "The simple reality is, today's electronically 'feature packed' and seasonally used vehicles require the Xtreme Charge maintenance system," said Smokey White, VP Sales and Marketing for PulseTech Products Corporation's Consumer Products. "The simple plug and play operation of the Xtreme Charge facilitates safe and ongoing maintenance charging allowing consumers to enjoy battery performance and service over a lifetime extended by up to five times through application of a patented PULSE Technology. With the X2, the service is doubled!"
In addition to family vehicles, White said the commercial application for the Xtreme Charge X2 would equally apply to many dual battery 24-volt systems, which are composed of two 12-volt batteries connected in series. Potential uses would include generators, transit, tour and/or charter buses, private coaches, heavy trucks, off-highway/construction equipment, fork and scissor lifts and alternative energy applications. Simply connect each battery, separately via the two available charging stations.
The CUL approved Xtreme Charge X2 is designed to be a maintenance charger for any type of 12-volt lead-acid battery. Like its single station sibling the XC100, during the initial connection, Xtreme Charge X2 automatically determines the appropriate rate of charge based on the battery's specific size and condition. It tests the battery continually for as long as it's is connected to the charger to determine the optimal bulk or float charge rate. The test step also incorporates a Bad Battery indication if it determines the battery is either faulty and cannot be re-charged or is below 7 volts.
As part of the five-stage charging process, Xtreme Charge X2 continually PULSE Charges to minimize the size of lead sulfate crystals allowing the battery to accept as much charge as possible. This patented PulseTech process ensures that new batteries will stay in like-new condition while dramatically improving the performance and life expectancy of older batteries.
The Xtreme Charge X2 works with all types and sizes of 12-volt lead-acid batteries including standard flooded, AGM, Gel and maintenance-free (from less than 10ah to over 150 ah).
The unit has a MSRP of $189.95. The Xtreme Charge X2 features four built in wall mount tabs, two fuse-protected quick-disconnect battery clamps and lugs, important safety instructions and a quick-start guide.
