Has anyone had any experience with a Megapulse on the AGM batteries.
I've heard a lot of good stuff on megapulse but mostly on ordinary lead-acids.
I've just emailed megapulse but then they're selling them aren't they.

We have a megapulse in the van and 4wd checking our batteries for the past 24 months and it works like a dream.
Only problem we had was it stopped working on the birdsville track (rattled inside), emailed the company and they sent me a new one in 48hrs and i return mailed the old one ,couldnt be happier with the product and it is swapped between 4wd and van at 6month intervals.

It is an electronic device that you put on your battery and it is designed to cause the internal battery plates to vibrate at a very fast rate, and in so doing so that causes that sulphate that has attached to the plates to dislodge. A battery without sulphate on the plates is a healthy battery, and will last and operate better and longer.

We have had one in the F250 for years but I think it is faulty now as the lights do not always work.

It is also supposed to help restore old batteries.

Have a look at their web site http://www.megapulse.com.au/

Thanks for the responses
I've done a bit more research and yes the megapulse does appear to work just as well on AGM's as well as ordinary lead-acids.
My email to megapulse was very seriously to the positive
so I reckon I'll spend the $100 odd as it doesn't seem too out of line when forking out around a grand for new batteries if it will give me a few more years out of them.

I have just read my 'C-Tek' manual which indicates it can "de-sulphate batteries". during its cycle. cheers

Is one of these units required per battery?
We have 7, 4 van, 3 vehicle.
Cheers.

I received a reply from megapulse tech. and they reccomend one unit is necessary for the van batteries (3 or 4) and one for the vehicle, (3 in my case with a 70w solar panel on the 2 aux. batts.as well as after full charging from the cranking batt.)

They reccomend the connection being from the positive on the first battery to the negative on the last battery.

Fairly simple really.

As the batteries are connected in Parallel it wouldn't matter where they are connected as all the positives and all the negatives are linked by heavy cable.

If it was a series connection then their recommendation would make sense but not for our parallel type connects.
