Xtreme Charge® receives National Street Machine Club Member Tested & Recommended Seal of Approval

Southlake, TX - August 6, 2009

Scoring high marks for quality, performance and ease-of-use, Xtreme Charge®, a family of Next Generation intelligent battery care products, has received a Member Tested & Recommended Seal of Approval by the National Street Machine Club for its single-station maintenance battery charger.

"Very easy to use. Nice and compact. Used it on 2 cars, 1 pick-up and 1 motorcycle," wrote member-tester Danny Siciliano in his evaluation. "Very effective on all. With no settings to screw up, it's a no-brainer. If you can tell red from black you can use it."

The National Street Machine Club is part of the national, membership-based magazine, Street Thunder, which is designed exclusively for guys who love to build fearsome street machines of all eras and styles — including rods, customs and muscle cars from the '20's to present. The magazine welcomes readers of all skill levels and it reaches enthusiasts who actually own street machines. This high level of ownership represents targeted marketing opportunities for custom parts, services and accessories. More than a dozen members participated in the test and evaluation of the Xtreme Charge product.

"Obviously we are thrilled but not surprised by the report as we are continuing to receive very positive feedback and reviews from around the country," said Smokey White, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, PulseTech® Products Corporation.

Based in Southlake, Texas, just outside of Dallas, year-to-year sales at PulseTech Products Corporation are up by over 60% in 2009, a testament to the "recession-proof" nature of a technology that ultimately results in saving real money by extending fleet, end-user and household budgets. By ensuring that lead-acid batteries have peak capacity and perform long past expected life cycles and keeping them out of the waste stream, landfills and smelters, Xtreme Charge is also gaining social respectability.

In 2007, the company introduced its first Next Generation, five-stage maintenance charger to the mainstream consumer market with Xtreme Charge. A simple, plug and play system, Xtreme Charge's initial single-station unit provided users with safe and ongoing maintenance charging and a patented pulse technology that provides a 1-2 punch that extends battery life by up to 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.
