Standard Battery chargers use normal DC current flow backward through the battery at 14V to 16V, which will allow Sulfanation to form/grow on the Plates over time, as the battery is charged and discharged, decreasing the plates surface area, until the plate material's surface molecules are too big to interact with the electrolyte, and the battery will not receive a charge any more and is dead, and needs replacing. Standard Desulfanators, use pulses of CURRENT
at a voltage of 14V to 16V, and will help KNOCK the Sulfate off the plate,
and it ends up in the bottom of the battery, and the plate gets thinner, but has a cleaner surface with smaller molecules for the electrolyte to interact with.
There are several versions of Bedini Technology.
In the SSG (Simplified School Girl) model, The coil is pulsed with Voltage causing a magnetic field to build up as current flows, the same as in any coil. Then when the switch is opened, the magnetic field collapse's, and creates a extremely short duration Recoil Spike of extremely high voltage & very small current flow, the same as any coil. The difference is what the SSG circuit does with that Sharp Spike of Voltage. Almost all modern coil/motor driver circuits, shunts that high voltage spike to the ground rail, or the positive rail, through free wheeling diodes, to keep that spike from killing the drive Transistors, Mosfets, IGBT's, etc.... Engineers do their Best, to get rid of that Recoil Spike.
The Bedini SSG diverts that High Voltage Recoil Spike through a diode into a charging battery, that is NOT
in the same current LOOP
as the drive battery / power supply. Thus the charging battery is seeing a almost current less High Voltage Spike
, that forces the ions in the electrolyte to move backward, without using much current.
Then there is some dead time while the circuit resets for the next coil pulse, and during this dead time, the ions in the battery electrolyte are still moving backward, but before they can stop moving, the coil produce's the next Recoil Voltage Spike, that keeps the ions moving backward.
This charges the battery, without using much current. The process with many charge discharge cycles, Replates
the battery plates with smaller and smaller surface molecules called Dentrites, that look like tiny fern leafs, or fractals that look the same at different magnifications, GROWING
on the plate. This increases the surface area that the electrolyte can interact with, thus increasing the state of charge, so that the battery can last FAR LONGER
at a given Amp Load. The smaller plate surface molecules also mean that it takes FAR LESS time to charge the battery back up.
The smaller plate surface molecules, also mean a Higher 4 Hour Standing Voltage.This process with many many charge cycles will make the plate surface molecules growing on the plate, Smaller than when NEW, thus the battery has MORE Discharge Time than when NEW....!!!!
Once SSG charged Batterys have been Conditioned, you Never want to put them on a standard DC charger, as that will undo the conditioning. So you want to charge them with a SSG model from then on. Because the charger Never lets the plate molecules get very big, the battery will Never Ware Out and Die by Sulfanation
The SG-Cap Pulser (School Girl) model, works similar to the SSG, but is very different.
When the coil magnetic field collapse's, and creates a extremely short duration Recoil Spike of extremely high voltage & very small current flow, the same as any coil. The SG-Cap Pulser model has a 3rd winding, that collects the Recoil Spike, and diverts it through a FWBR into a collection Cap that fills up extremely fast, because of the extremely high voltage, up to 20-25V Then the Cap Pulser's semiconductor switch, SHARPLY
Dumps the Cap to the charging Battery, down to the battery's voltage, or a volt or 2 over the battery Voltage, then the Cap Recharges up from the charging battery's Voltage, Vs up from empty, taking less time to charge to full. Once again, the Sharp Cap Discharge Pulse is forcing the Ions in the electrolyte to move backward, and once again you have Dead time while the cap fills back up, and when the cap dumps again, it keeps the ions moving backward, charging the Battery.
And once again, the charging battery is NOT
in the same Current LOOP
as the driving battery/power supply. Because the charger Never lets the plate molecules get very big, the battery will Never Ware Out and Die by Sulfanation
With The SG-Cap Pulser model, you can use the battery on a standard charger, such as in your automobile, and it will hold the conditioning for a lot longer than the SSG model. The battery will eventually lose its conditioning, and start Sulfanation again, needing a SG-Cap Pulser treatment every so often, to keep it in shape. Or use the SG-Cap Pulser all the time the same as a SSG.
Then there is The Bedini/Cole, bipolar motor driver circuit, that can be configured as a 1/2 H bridge driver, or a Full H bridge driver, and are much like any other H bridge motor drivers, with the difference being, that a FWBR is put across the drive motor Coil, to collect that extremely short duration Recoil Spike of extremely high voltage & very small current flow, into a Cap Pulser, to charge Battery's with, in the same manner as the SG-Cap Pulser model. And there are NO Free wheeling Diodes to shunt that high voltage spike to the ground rail, or the positive rail to get rid of it, as most modern H Bridge motor drivers do.
There are several other variations, that I will not go into here.
All of these Energizer circuits and motor configs, are Patented by Bedini/Energenx"Instead of conventional constant current or constant voltage DC charging, batteries charged by electrical pulses with specific shape, frequency, and magnitude, to trigger improved electrochemical energy charging in the battery. Because of this, the life of new batteries can be dramatically extended and the capacity of older batteries, previously unable to be adequately charged by conventional means, can be increased."
The commercial models and Kits are sold here:
tell them RS sent you......
There is a OZ source, but I cant think of the URL at this time.
I hope this helps you, and everyone else, understand the difference between standard DC chargers, even smart chargers, Standard Desulfanators, and the Bedini ENERGIZER'S
