Studies have shown that vehicles spend a substantial percentage of time parked rather than being driven. The calculations were made based upon the number of hours that the average car is in motion. Subtract that from the average lifespan and you get the percentage of parking time.
The Royal Automobile Club (RAC) Foundation in UK reported in 2012 that the typical UK car is parked 96.5% of the time.
According to the 1995 UITP Millennium Cities Database, the percentage of cars parked in 84 cities around the world was 95.8%, with cars being in motion for 61 minutes a day.
In Singapore, the percentage of time a car is parked is 94% followed by Seoul and China with 92.3% and 89.4% respectively.
How Longer Parking Time Affects You
Automotive batteries discharge as soon as they are parked. During which time a degenerative process occurs also known as sulfation.
What is Sulfation?
Sulfation begins with the formation of spongy lead sulfate on the negative and positive plates within the battery. This, however, is converted back to lead and active material during charging.
As studies have shown, the number of hours a battery discharges far outweighs the number of hours it is charged, as a result, the spongy lead sulfate formation eventually crystallizes and can no longer be converted back to lead and active material, the very thing batteries need to function. The result? Premature battery failure.
What is the solution?
Infinitum Desulfators have been proven to work to revive batteries though the shattering of lead sulfate crystals and dissolving them back as active material, thereby maximizing the lifespan of the battery.
