Will a Battery Desulfator Recover or Extend the Life of My Lead Acid Batteries?

Simple question, complicated answer.

I will try to answer as succinctly as possible.

Sulphate crystal build up has been known about since the Lead Acid battery was first invented, and this build up leads to over 70% of premature failure of lead acid batteries. However all batteries wear out over time and no device can stop that happening.

Over the last 30 years or so battery manufactures have made great strides in combatting sulphate build up and improving the life span of their batteries, by introducing changes to the construction of the battery plates, and in ideal circumstances, proper maintenance and correct charging, sulfation should not be a problem.

However we do not live in a perfect world and sulphate build up remains the major cause of battery failure.

It has been found that a controlled overcharge of the battery will break down the crystals, and if used correctly will keep the batteries in good clean condition, and extend the useful life of the battery. This method is not recomm…

The work landscape will be vastly different a generation (just over two decades) from now; Flexible and Freelance work will be a significant and perhaps dominant aspect of it from today's viewpoint.

Best Recruiting Practices

Best practices:

1. Current employee referrals

This source knows your business inside and out and can help shape the culture fit you are seeking in a new hire. Often time business owners fail to see their current employee pool as an asset that can bring in more of the desired hires they are seeking. Let the employees know what you are seeking and they will often have the opportunity to bring in the next great hire. Don't forget to include new hires in this process, they are often coming from their previous company and know others exploring new careers. Combining this tactic with a cash bonus or incentive is an additional way to bring in the new employees you desire.

2. Former employees

It may seem a bit unconventional but any employee who left on good terms may want to return with good terms. Staying in contact with this segment of former employees can also have the added benefit of referrals as well. In much the same way your internal employees know your business, former employees do …

4 Types Of Earphones

These are simply large circles that press against your ear. When you wear them, they rest on the outer ear-they don't enter the ear canal. This feature allows them to leak sound from the external environment to get into the ear.

The earphones are loved by many people as they are compact and easy to carry around. While they are great, their main flaw is that they allow noise to enter your ear thus you don't receive good quality music that you deserve. They also tend to hurt the ear especially when you wear them for a long time.
