GOLD-IBT Intelligent Battery Tester

A volt meter can measure the voltage in an SLA or car battery but cannot tell you how much current is available for use. This means that the battery could fail without warning, just when you need it most. The GOLD-IBT Intelligent Battery Tester solves this problem by measuring temperature, voltage AND capacity in under 6 seconds. It achieves this by performing a conventional 20 hour battery discharge in seconds using a patented pulsed frequency load test which accurately measures the available Ampere-hour (Ah) capacity based on the the battery's temperature and condition of charge. That's award-winning intelligence. A battery Ah size table indicates when batteries should be recharged or replaced.

Unlike other battery testers on the market, the GOLD-IBT is extremely easy to use with no complicated settings or switches. Just connect directly to the battery terminals to start the test. Record the test results onto the labels provided and attach to the battery for future reference. When the GOLD-IBT shows less than 65% of the battery's stated Ah capacity, simply recharge or replace.

In future with the GOLD-IBT, you will never be caught out or left stranded by a flat battery...

Applications include...
Security Fire Alarm Systems, Motor Vehicles, UPS Systems, Telecommunications, Emergency Lighting, Portable Tools and Instrumentation, Mobility Vehicles, Lawnmowers, Ride-On Toys, Medical Equipment, Back-up Computer Systems, Automotive Electronics, Solar Power, Robotics, Hobby Craft etc

MUST SPECIFY VOLTAGE WHEN ORDERING- 6,12,24,36 & 48 VOLTAGE

Megapulse is an electronic battery recovery device that operates in conjunction with charging systems to keep your battery in peak operating condition. It will:
• Prevent premature battery death
• Extend battery life
• Keep batteries in 'like new' condition
• Reduce the number of batteries discarded in a lifetime
• Restore 100% battery capacity
• Reduce recharge time


How does Megapulse work?
During normal operation of lead-acid batteries, lead sulphate forms on battery plates. This process is called sulphation. During this process the sulphates expand and crystalise, choking the plates, reducing battery efficiency to the point where the battery will not accept a charge.

Sulphation build-up on battery plates is a common cause of battery failure. The technology of the MEGAPULSE battery rejuvenator reverses this process by cleaning the battery plates of lead sulphate build-up and returning the battery to near-new condition. This will reduce internal resistance and improve battery charge times, capacity and life.


Where can I use Megapulse?
Megapulse can be used in all Wet-Cell, Dry-Cell and Gel-Cell Lead-Acid batteries. Megapulse is availble in 6 volt, 12 volt, 24 volt, 36 volt and 48 volt models. Megapulse is essential for deep-cycle applications such as in mobility scooters and golf carts where batteries are drained each time.

Megapulse is also essential for batteries that sit unused for long periods of time, such as in classic cars, pleasure boats, agricultural equipment and back-up systems. In these applications, batteries are required to be replaced frequently as a result of sulphation, but when a Megapulse is fitted this problem is drastically reduced.
