Like all of the SolarPulse models, the SP-5 Watt model utilizes PulseTech's unrivaled solar charging system combined with their patented optimized high frequency pulsing circuit to ensure your batteries will accept, store and release maximum power and last up to five times longer. The ReNew-IT Pulse Technology reverses the naturally occurring process of battery sulfation - the main cause of battery failure.
Used extensively by consumers worldwide and the U.S. Military for over twenty-five years, the SP-5 (735X305) technology has been scientifically proven by two major universities and TACOM Life Cycle Management Command (division of the US military) to make batteries work harder and last longer than you ever thought possible. Ideal for virtually any kind of vehicle and equipment in areas without access to electrical power, including motor carriers, rail cars, sailboats, docks, telecom, recreational vehicles, and much more. There are three other 12V SolarPulse models available: SP-2 Watt (735X302), a SP-6 Watt ERV unit (735X613), and a 25 Watt (735X325). The 6-watt model is ideal for emergency rescue and law enforcement vehicles because it has a unique rectangular solar panel designed to easily mount on any light bar.
This uniquely designed solar panel is made of highly efficient proven crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, encapsulated with a clear polyurethane plastic coating (instead of a breakable glass coating), and mounted on a laminated aluminum substrate back plate that is less than 1/4” thick. This makes the panel virtually indestructible, impervious to weather and resistant to damage.

Sulfation is the buildup of lead sulfate (PbSo4) crystals on your battery plates.
All lead acid batteries will suffer from the effects of sulfation. It is the unwanted byproduct of the natural double sulfate chemical reaction that generates electricity within the battery. When a battery is in use, the active material on your battery’s plates, lead and lead dioxide, react with the electrolyte or sulfuric acid (H2SO4) to generate electricity. During this process a thin layer of non-crystalline solid lead sulfate is deposited on the plates.
During charging, this sulfate deposit is supposed to be converted back to lead dioxide and sulfuric acid restoring the battery back to its pre-discharged state. However, the process is not perfect. Incomplete charging or prolonged time left in a discharged state will convert the amorphous (non-crystalline) lead sulfate into a hardened crystalized form diminishing the ability of the battery to reach full charge.
