  1. Battery desulfators electrically shake the sulfate crystals that build up on the lead plates of a flooded lead acid battery over a period of time. Before desulphators batteries with sulfate build up would effectively be considered dead. Some customers even leave their desulfator permamently connected to prevent desulfation from occurring. Battery will last three times as long with a desulfator. I use the BD-2. Good video thanks

    i hope´╗┐ you can help. i’m building my panels. should, i build the panel to 18v or 12v. i’m told 18v for the panels. what do you suggest?
    thanks for the ear

  3. Always a good idea to vent battery boxes, passively or preferably with small fans; to aid gas dispersion and also a moderate cooling effect of the ambient air.
    And also, a very good idea to wear gloves! holy cow he’s all over those batteries.

  4. “baking´╗┐ soda is soda ash”

    Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate ( NaHCO3 ) and soda ash is sodium carbonate ( Na2CO3 ).

  5. baking soda is soda ash.a pool supply is a better source.very cheep also they have very good too.

  6. OK click my screen name to get the playlist for all these mini clips. much better in order

  7. Where does the Chlorine come from in a battery containing Lead and Sulphuric Acid? Hydrogen may not be toxic but it is not known for its life sustaining properties it is therefore an asphyxiant.

  8. I built my own Solar Panels for under $100, as well as a Solar Water Heater for under $10 that I am currently using to power my 1700 Square Foot home using the plans at:


  9. its okay to post these videos as help but it is quite dangerous and could seriously harm you so i sugest that you buy yourself a guide link diysolarpanels4u.wetpaint com it saved me so much time and i did it properly and safely.hope it helpes

    Hey, check out my website at ScientificallyGreener(Dot) com and get all the new and improved Equipments to build or buy your own solar and wind energy systems ScientificallyGreener(Dot) com is a website that sells the most modern environmental products available

  11. You may want to correct this video the two by-products of acid battery charging are: Hydrogen Gas and Chlorine Gas
    Now Hydrogen gas is not toxic to humans but mixed with air it will burn/explode if there’s a ignition source

    However the Chlorine Gas IS Toxic and will at low levels make you violently ill it will even kill you in high levels – acid batteries need a well ventilated box / room (extractor fan)

    Acid in eyes need to be treated by an EYE Wash Kit (Pure water) for 15mins then seek help

  12. wiki ‘phantom load’ and it says a Berkley proff. concluded it only is 10% of the average household usage, which is alot, but saying it is 75% is a stretch, how did u come up with that figure?

  13. If you want save money goggle

    Phantom load

    all your appliances consume 75% of your electric bill while they are switched off !!!

  14. Come on Hindenburg study it did not explode,for if so one half of the word would no longer be there,trust me do your research first ok!

  15. Be smart – don’t pay any more electricity bills. more info: (Copy to your browser’s address bar)

  16. it does not really matter 6 or 12 volt batteries. No matter what is chosen, you can still store equal amounts of power. I currently use 5 strings of two 12 volt batteries to provide 24 volt feed to my inverter. Higher voltage on the dc side means lower dc current to provide the same power, ergo less power loss and lighter wires, less heat on the dc side of the system.

  17. Where eye protection. If you get acid in your eye flush with water then go to the emergency room. Do not put baking soda in your eye.

  18. inverters are about 80% efficient so you loose some power. U cant make something from nothing. Converting use energy.

  19. 2 six volt batteries make one double sized 12 volt battery. 2 six volt batteries last longer.
