Larry Dimasi made his first desulfator purchase from us in October 2010 and promptly posted a video testimonial on how he revived a dead 12V Exide 700CCA truck battery. He posted another video two months later on how he reconditioned his Century tractor battery with an external charger as well as his Bosch battery meant for his Holden Commodore.
The Infinitum Desulfator can be used to recondition or revive batteries with an external charger when a battery is in poor condition or is dead. It typically takes about 2 to 3 days of charging with the desulfator installed in parallel at the same time as you will see in this video. If you use your vehicle frequently, then you will enjoy the best lifespan optimisation by installing the desulfator throughout the service life of the battery.
Below is a slideshow for a quick peek of that video:
I revived my 5 year old portable Century Jumper 850 jump starter battery with the Infinitum battery desulfator. I am so convinced that I am also using it on my deep cycle solar batteries
Wai Tam, Floral Park, New York, United States
Wai Tam managed to revive his 5 year old sealed lead acid battery located inside the Century 850 Jump Starter with the Infinitum Desulfator. After charging the battery for 5 to 6 hours over 2 to 3 times he left the battery for a week to discover then that the battery had successfully been revived being able to hold its charge.
As a battery sulfates its capacity to hold a charge drops. You will note this from the quick drop in voltage despite of a full charge.
The good news is, with the Infinitum Desulfator, Wai Tam successfully reversed the destructive process of sulfation and optimized the health of the battery. Watch the video below:
Video Transcript (with snapshots from the video – edited for clarity):
I bought this battery desulfator called Infinitum. The label says Battery Lifespan Maximizer. The reason I got this is because my portable battery is losing its charge. It’s not holding the charge as good as before. I was gonna just have it recycled. I don’t wanna leave it in my car for a month or two and then have it not be able to start a car just when I need it to. So it’s not completely dead, I would say two-thirds of its former capacity. The battery was reading at about 12.5 to 12.6 voltage. So I plugged this desulfator in and I plugged the charger in. It’s charging the battery at 14.72 volts.
I’m gonna leave it connected for a few hours then I’m going to check the readings on the battery to see if it would hold a charge after I disconnect the charger. Usually, if it holds a charge after a few hours I would still get 3 lighted LEDs. So I’m gonna check later on and see how well this desulfator works.
About a week later, and this is the voltage on my portable battery after using the desulfator. I charge it for 2 to 3 times for 5 to 6 hours with the desulfator, it seems to be holding the voltage after a week. When it is new, it would read 12.8 to 13 volts, but this is like a 4 to 5-year-old battery. I still have 3 LEDs, that means its almost full capacity. So I would have a bit of confidence leaving this battery in the car. I don’t want to have something that goes in the car and when you need to use it and it doesn’t work. So this desulfator seems to be doing something. I will continue to use it.
Now I have installed this desulfator to my deep cycle battery, you can see the green LED light here, shows that it is working. I’m going to leave it connected and see if the voltage will be better. It’s going to be charged by the solar panels that I have. It’s a good sunny day outside so everything is working well. Let’s take a quick look. There’s a little shadow cast by the basketball pole but can’t do too much until the angle of the sun changes. It’s a good day for solar power.
Michael Phillips successfully revives a dead 12V battery after charging the battery with the Infinitum Desulfator installed. Though the audio on this video is soft, its very clear that the revived battery successfully cranked his diesel water pump.
The Infinitum desulfator is the best thing out there – I’ve used it to revive a dead battery that I now use to start a 3 cylinder diesel pump and we all know diesel engines use lots of power to start because of the compression rating. I also use this battery to start my generator which saves me from pulling the recoil and it started 20 times!!
I’ll recommend the Infinitum desulfator to anyone who has a dead battery lying around!
This device repaired 2 batteries, that were weak, after the treatment with this device I did a voltage check, & the batteries are retaining their full voltage. Now they're cranking like new!

In part 1 of Larry’s video below, he demonstrates how he connects the Infinitum Desulfator paralleled with a charger.
In the second video testimonial below, Larry successfully revives a dead 12V Exide 700CCA truck battery. After charging the battery with the Infinitum Desulfator installed, the battery cranked a truck like new.
These video reviews on the Infinitum Desulfator were shot by Tekenglobal, a YouTube channel recounting his experience reviving his dead sealed lead acid battery after a 3 day charge with the Infinitum Desulfator installed. The 12V battery had a 11.31V before the reconditioning and ended with 12.34V affirming improvement in the battery’s ability to hold a charge. An aged or dead battery will usually not increase in voltage significantly as shown, just with charging. The buildup of sulfate impedes the battery’s capacity to receive and hold a charge.
“I’m shocked! This is thing is not bunked!”

Part 1: Reviewing The Dead Battery
Part 2: Installing The Infinitum Desulfator
The video below illustrates how simple it is to install the Infinitum Desulfator on a battery with a charger, also known as external charging as opposed to installing it in a car.
Part 3: The Desulfation Process Begins With A Charger In Parallel
Part 4: Positive Results After Desulfation
Though the reviewer did not come back with a final video, it is evident so far that the battery is able to hold a charge above 12V, which is an indication of battery recovery. The best way to test a successful battery recovery is to test the battery’s internal resistance (impedance) with a battery tester or multimeter. Find out how you can test the efficacy of a desulfator.
I bought one of these after reading some research papers on the effects of desulfators on old batteries. I had left my lights on for 3 days and the battery was so dead it couldn’t light up my dashboard, let alone turn the engine over.
It took a week, but that was probably me not realising that the electrolyte needed topping up. The day after I had topped it up and set it on charge overnight, it worked like new. Pity I had already bought a new battery for my Kawasaki ZX-6R, but it’s now a spare that is worth more than I paid for the Infinitum Desulfator.
I have a few 2nd hand batteries that I used in a solar setup. They have sulfated and not been used for about a year. I’m reviving one as I type this.

In the video below, Jeremy relates how he successfully recovers three of his quad bike batteries. One of which was a 12V battery that only read 7.6V and he managed to charge it up, but the voltage would not go any higher than 9.7V.
After connecting the Infinitum Desulfator to the battery together with a 2 amp trickle charge charger for 2 days, the battery was revived. A volt measurement made 4 days later at a healthy 12.96V proved that the battery was able to hold its charge.
He also successfully revived his Yamaha Raptor 50 battery to 12.77V and his Suzuki QuadSport Z50 battery to 12.83V all with a single 12V Infinitum Desulfator.
TOTAL SAVED: $90 – $120
“I ran this desulfator unit on the battery in my 7-year-old booster pack that would never hold a charge over 20% and voltage read 4.2 volts. I didn’t think it would work but it is now reading 12.5v and says 85% after 3 days trickle charging with the desulfator connected.”
