Xtreme Charge® Receives Innova Award for Product Development Excellence

Southlake, TX - January 30, 2008

Battery Power Products & Technology Magazine has awarded an Innova Award for Product Development Excellence to PulseTech® Products Corporation in recognition of the company's new Xtreme Charge® 12-volt battery charger and maintenance system.

Webcom Communications developed the award, given to the product showing the most innovation and cutting-edge technology. The Battery Power Products ® Technology Innova Awards categories included Industry Leadership, Best Technology, Outstanding Application and Product Development Excellence.

Xtreme Charge®, according to Smokey White, PulseTech® Vice President, Sales & Marketing, is being marketed to motorcycle, automotive, marine and lawn and garden market segments. White described the Xtreme Charge® as the first true Next Generation 12-volt battery charger, providing users with the industry’s most advanced charging and maintenance system to date.

With Xtreme Charge, White said the consumer has a battery charger that will charge any 12-volt lead acid battery, safely and simply, and through the application of a patented PULSE Technology will increase average battery life by 2-5 times. White said the idea was to make a charger so simple to use—that it actually does get used regularly.

"You don't even have to turn it on, just connect it to the battery, plug it in and your battery is charging," he added. A unique charge algorithm built into Xtreme Charge® coupled with advanced battery evaluation capabilities eliminates the need for users to identify battery type or chemistry, to select and set any specific charge criteria prior to charging or worry about charging in an improper or potentially unsafe manner.

The suggested retail is $99.95.

Product highlights include a simple "plug and leave it" technology:

  • Intelligent testing and evaluation circuitry featuring 12 LED status indicators
  • A proprietary computer-integrated system to determine and deliver the appropriate amount of charge from .1A to 2.5A depending on the condition of the battery by evaluating both voltage and amperage simultaneously (an industry first)
  • A unique and patented PULSE technology to minimize the size of sulfation buildup on battery plates—the reason why 80 percent of all batteries die

PULSE Technology substantially improves a battery’s ability to accept and store energy, thus extending battery life. In addition, PULSE Technology employed through Xtreme Charge® also prevents the sulfate-induced corrosion that is the primary cause of shedding of active material.

Xtreme Charge® is safe and easy to use. It works with all types and sizes of 12-volt lead-acid batteries including flooded, fill and charge, Gel, AGM and Maintenance Free (from less than 10 Ah to over 150 Ah). Xtreme Charge includes a charger with fuse protected quick-disconnect battery clamps and lugs, important safety instructions and a quick-start guide. It comes with a five-year warranty.
