Anybody know anything about an Inox product for restoring/protecting batteries? Saw it at local store and wondered if it was any good.

Regards to all,

Baz

I used to work for an autObarn and am a great fan of the Inox products, particularly their aerosol lubricant. I added a bottle of their battery conditioner 6 months after I put my current battery in my Pajero (a Yuasa 700cc Overlander by Century). I have flattened the battery twice now, and each time it has been jump started and has recharged up fine. This battery is close to 7 years old, and these days, that's pretty good when most batteries aren't expected to last much more than 3-5 years. The difficult thing is wondering whether it would have been any different if I hadn't put the additive in... but I did and so far, so good.

Tried numerous applications of Inox without success. Went to a MegaPulse battery conditioner have never regretted it. Am currently using a 9yr old battery, plates are clean as a whistle and it performs faultlessly. Check out this link Megapulse

Thanks Guys,

I appreciate your comments on the additive from both perspectives. I didn't know anything about the second option so thats another thing I could try at some stage.

I think I'll give the inox a go first as my battery is approx 4 years so it probably can't do any harm.

Baz,
Get a Megapulse, don't put chemicals into your battery that the battery manufacturer does not recommend, if they were that good the manufacturers would tell you about it, they advise to use ONLY "distilled' water.

If you get negative posts about Inox and only positive posts about Megapulse that answers your question.

I use a 6 year old Deep Cycle Calcium battery as my Cranking battery now after 4 years of running a fridge, (probably) only because it has had a Megapulse connected to it since new.

Thanks Mainey,

Love the +ve -ve comment in this context.

What does a Megapulse cost?

I am buying a new battery soon so it sounds like it might be a good investment.

I tried it on on "iffy" battery.

The battery remained "iffy".

Hi Davoe,
It's a diesel,but was just looking for some balanced feedback from others on a product I knew nothing about, other than the claims that were on the pack. All the comments are helpful in making an informed choice.

Regards
Baz

Dave that sounds just like it's a real 'miracle' :-)

"You had some crappy battery in your camper that you used to flatten regulary and it lasted 7 years as well - without inox"

Can I ask what brand this 'crappy battery' is ?

I'm sure there are other people out there that need a 'crappy' battery that can be "flattened regularly and still last 7 years" and yeah I'm one of them too

I dont recall the type of battery as i didnt pay any attention to that sort back then
it had the 92 bubble marked off on it when i bought it in 95 and the battery was replaced in 99 when my starter motor carked it and AFAIK i reckon it was still doing the job but i was "overserviced" by the auto leccy.
I spent a fair bit of time living in it running the fluros and radio and TV.
regulary flattened might be a bit of an overstatement but it was flattened at least 1/2 dozen times leaving the lightson a couple of times, when it ran out of fuel (quite a few times as it required heeeeps of cranking to get going again) when the alternator died
