This product has been discontinued and has been replaced by the BatteryMinder 1500. Becuase this page is popular we are leaving it marked in stock so you can still order. However, we will be sending the new BatteryMinder 1500 not the old 12117.


BatteryMINDer® 12117 is a 2 stage charger/maintainer/desulfator that extends performance and life of 12 Volt sealed lead acid batteries including flooded (filler cap, maintenance-free, valve regulated lead-acid [VRLA], lead-acid [SLA]), starter, deep cycle and hybrid. It automatically dissolves harmful power-robbing sulfation using safe, low voltage, patented high-frequency pulse technology. Can be left connected for extended, non-use periods without overcharging. Not for gel or aviation batteries.


  • Charges and maintains your battery without overcharging it, guaranteed, when charged within the temperature limits referred to in Battery Performance-Life ALERT!
  • Features two stage charging program: Charge and Float-Maintenance with desulfation in both stages (full-time.)
  • Utilizes full-time battery monitoring to automatically test the battery several times a second, supplying only the current needed to maintain battery at full charge.
  • Utilizes safe variable high frequency pulse desulfation to dissolve both old and newly formed sulfate from battery's plates that prevent the batteries from holding a full charge. To read more about the effects of sulfation on batteries, see the Proprietary Desulfation section on our Education Menu.
  • Maximizes battery life and capacity; reconditions weak batteries.
  • Provides short circuit, spark and polarity protection.
  • Reduces the need to add water to maintenance-type batteries during long, non-use storage.
  • Costs less than 10¢ per month for full time maintenance.
  • Shows if connections are correct via charge indicator and "blinks" when battery reaches full charge.
  • Allows battery to be stored safely at 0° to 120º F providing they were previously maintained using a BatteryMINDer®.
  • Charges/maintains up to 4 batteries at a time (12 Volt batteries in parallel.) Requires use of Y-Connector 210AY (sold separately) or customer supplied 18 gauge wire.
  • Includes 11’ DC cord with quick connector.
  • Backed by a 5 year warranty

Included Accessories:

  • 2’ Battery Clip Cord Set with Quick Connector
  • 2’ Fused Ring Terminal Cord Set with Quick Connector

Optional Accessories:

  • 210AY : SmarTECHnology®-Y Multiple Battery Connector
  • DCE12: DC Extension Cables - 12ft.
  • DCE25: DC Extension Cables - 25ft.

FAQs About This Product

Ask a Question

  • What is a Desulfator?

    A desulfator is a device that when attached to a lead acid battery will clean the internal plates. They remove hardened sulfate crystals that have built up as a result of sulfation (see: What is Sulfation?). True desulfators use a pulse frequency to desolve these crystals vs. the less effective voltage pulse

  • What Is Sulfation?

    Sulfation is the buildup of lead sulfate (PbSo4) crystals on your battery plates.

    Contrast image of built up of sulfate crystals on a battery.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.
