Bill,
I think I get it. They are not proven not to work Good enough for marketing and legal.

I've got some nice bottom land, excellent location, with a great marketing brochure. I'm willing to give you a sweet deal.

I've used a Desulphator on my 1200ah bank with about 10 years age and saw some immediate results after 2-3 months use. After removing it, I found that my bank returned to the same as it was before within a couple weeks.

It did however, drain over 5 gallons of water from my bank!

There are no results of using these devices, as extensive testing by GE showed. So any reports about positive results must be due to other factors. For many there are perceived results or they charge more often / longer because they think the batteries are better now and must be able to take more charge. It is the extra charging that provides the results in that case etc. etc.
Our boat had a couple when we bought her and when I ripped them out a couple of weeks later there was no difference.

cheers,
Nick.

Timely thread, as was thinking about buying one of these high power pulsers, and the only blurb on the subject was from the makers.
The guy I was thinking about buying from makes them from home, more as a hobby, and he did say they would need to be kept connected for a few months to make any difference, but also said, he would not leave them unattended.
Thanks to the post about the tests on these devices, saved me fifty quid
Thanks
