Has anyone tried one of these?

Do they work?

Today on modern batteries no. They used to fit them to trucks in particular, but they don't anymore. For the price of a Megapulse it you would be unlikely to recover the investment in the life of the vehicle.
Depending on how you use your vehicle, but if you use it off-road and need it to be reliable, you should change the battery every twenty four months and definitely by 30 months regardless of what condition you may think it is in. Nothing worse than a flat battery.
Why do you think products like Megapulse are never fitted as standard to any vehicle or equipment.

one general reason would be to keep initial purchase costs down

Allyn if there were an effective device you can guarantee that trucking companies would fit them. Thing is, they are a inefectual on modern batteries. If these devices worked, you would have droves of manufacturers and lots of people fitting them. Thing is, they are not, because they are no longer relevent.

I wasn't disputing any of that or advocating their use. All I stated was that car manufacturers leave a lot of things missing from vehicles in order to reduce the purchase price.

Sorry Oziexplorer- I have to disagree.
My Megapulse has done wonders for batteries in this family- has definitely given some "stuffed" batteries a life extension.(They work best running continuously eg: on a float(automatic) charger. I move my unit around from 'van to boat to car etc about every fortnight.
I was the ultimate sceptic- but not any more.
PS the battery manufacturers- and car manufacturers- just want to sell you a new battery.

David,

I agree with you.

I since got one and it appears to be helping, the battery was on its last breath and since I added the megapulse it has been doing something to it, it bubbles almost constantly (slighlty) and it is cleaning up a mushy coating the plates had...
I haven't fully tested it yet but will find out soon when running the fridge etc
