Battery's potential energy gradually starts to decrease over time. Sulfation is a problem for several inverter batteries.

Sulfation is the term used to describe the formation of lead sulfate particles on the top of the battery's panels. The short-term harm posed by these crystal forms is minimal. However, as the coatings enlarge, the number of electrode layers within the cell starts to decline. As a result, the cell's effectiveness gradually deteriorates.This is a typical occurrence for inverter batteries. All batteries will eventually experience this problem. How well an inverter battery performs is determined by how long it can operate before sulfation becomes a serious problem.

Tesla Power USA is a global pioneer in the development of inverter batteries that can alter the dynamics of your battery life. Individual who have inverter will benefit from remembering these things about battery sulfation.

Sulfation causes a battery's cranking power to significantly drop. The likelihood of a boil over, in which battery acid boils and spills, is also increased by sulfation. Sulfation shortens the amount of time your battery can really function between charges. An inverter battery could die sooner than expected due to any of these effects.

Sulfation is classified into two types: reversible (also known as gentle sulfation) and permanent (or hard sulfation). Reversible sulfation can frequently be reversed if a battery is serviced promptly by applying an overcharge in the form of a regulated current of roughly 200 mA to a fully charged battery. For around 24 hours, the battery terminal voltage is permitted to increase to between 2.50 and 2.66V/cell (15 and 16V on a 12V mono block). During the corrective service, raising the battery's temperature to 50–60 °C (12–140 °F) aids in the crystals' further dissolution.

When a battery has been in a low state of charge for weeks or months, permanent sulfation develops. At this point, no restoration appears to be possible.

You can actually prevent the battery sulfation by doing regular maintenance, using best charging practices and avoid battery storage with zero charge.

To know more about how to prevent sulfation and to keep the battery packs in good condition, contact the experts at Tesla Power USA. You can visit the nearest Tesla Power Shop in your city and ask for the battery health check. This battery health check actually helps you to find the core reason of non-performance of your old battery. All our Tesla Power Shops using EBEP technology can help you to restore the lost potential of your inverter battery by removing the lead particles from the plates using de-sulfation. This battery revival method can actually save almost 85% of the cost involved in buying a new inverter battery.

If your old inverter battery is found to be dead, you can make a choice from wide range of inverter batteries available at best affordable cost at Tesla Power Shops.
