This company is claiming to double the life of a lead-acid battery. If it was suddenly possible to double the life of a lead-acid battery from five years to ten years then it would be major news...it would be a profound discovery.

I can't tell you if it is snake oil or not...but the claim seems next to impossible.

Keep in mind that even in this day of consumer fraud protection, that people still get away with selling magnets that supposedly double your cars fuel mileage.
