One for the techies- it's a kit to make a unit that restores lead acid batteries that have become sulphated over time, as they do. Most car batteries are replaced because of this, but they can be restored cheaply. This unit is used in parallel with a battery charger or trickle charger, even a solar unit, to break down the lead sulphate deposits. Can't use a soldering iron? Then DO NOT BUY!

Part of blurb:

"Buy a kit of parts based on Alastair Couper's original schematic which came out in the HomePower magazine in 2000 (HomePower Article) design which will, when built, give you a fully working desulphator on a PCB.

We use alternate inductors and some slightly changed resistor values to take maximum advantage of the alternate inductors used. The 555 part of the circuit also has some additional protection over the original design with the inclusion of a zener diode.

It is a part of the range reviewed by the Classic and Sports Car magazine which won a budget choice nomination."

It's arrived (quick!), I've built it, and it is operating. Whether it "works" or not will take a week or so to find out.
