Peugeot 308 Owners Face Premature Battery Failure

Peugeot 308 Owners Face Premature Battery Failure

Many owners of the new Peugeot 308 in Singapore and Malaysia have noted that their batteries fail as early as four months into use. Replacing the battery costs a hefty US$213.

​The most likely cause is sulfation, a process where sulfate crystals accumulate over time forming an insulating barrier over the battery’s lead plates. This degenerative process greatly reduces the battery’s ability to start an engine and eventually kills the battery prematurely. The Infinitum Desulfator is a reusable technology that reverses this process at only a fraction of the cost.

A recent customer of ours bought the 12V Infinitum Desulfator model along with a 12A 12V 3 Stage Battery Charger to revive the batteries of his Peugeot 308 GT. The first battery that came with his brand new car failed only after 7 months! His second battery showed similar signs after it failed to start his car. Not wanting history repeated, he then took preventive measures and installed the Infinitum Desulfator.

Our desulfators when used in a vehicle, can be used independently without the use of an external charger. The charger, of course, allows for quicker recovery and with a programmable timer switch (available at hardware shops) can be switched on and off without starting your car. This especially is helpful whenever you are away or when the car is not used for some time. The images below are taken from his blog of how the desulfator and battery charger were used concurrently in a parallel connection to recover the battery.
