•
•
•
Late 1980’s – Carl Gali - Retired Texas Instruments Engineer begins work on
development of more efficient battery charger - Birth of Pulse Technology. Multiple
patents issued.
1990-1995 – Testing -Stennis Space Center, NASA, Army Research Laboratory, USAF
MEEP Program. First US Military blanket PO and entry into commercial markets.
1995-current – Subsequent product and technology evaluations – SAE, VSE
Corporation, Oakland University, Ohio State University. Distribution channels
established.
1995-1998 – Solargizer and PowerPulse developed for commercial markets.
1999-2005 – SolarPulse line replaces Solargizers. Commercial and military sales
growth.
2006 – Xtreme Charge is developed. Re-definition of company, products and outside
investment in commercialization of proven technology into a new commercial product
line.
2008 – 390PT Introduced. Launch of new company direction with private PR firm,
national sales force and new products focusing on Automotive, Marine, PowerSports
and Lawn & Garden market segments.
2010 – XCR-20, SC-12 and 777PT developed with outstanding field successes.
Miltitary and commercial sales growth. Public utilities and distribution sales
recognized as major contributors.
2012 – QuadLink developed and introduced. Resellers and Distributors re-defined and
re-classified with focus on developing sales through distribution channels established.

Battery Basics
 Lead Plates and
Electrolyte
 64% H2O and 36% SO4
 Specific Gravity 1.275
 Electro-Chemical
reaction
 Sulfation: a natural and
necessary byproduct to
achieve energy transfer
 Charging reverses a
portion of the
accumulation back to
active electrolyte
Pulsetech Products Corporation – Consumer Products Group
Battery Basics
Why Use PulseTech Products?
1. 80% of battery failure is caused by
sulfation buildup
2. Not all sulfate deposits are released
back into electrolyte by standard
charging processes
3. Residual deposits create a variety of
negative impacts on Battery
Performance:
•
Inability to discharge power
•
Inability to recharge
•
Shortened battery life
PulseTech products
reverse sulfation
damage in marginal
batteries, inhibits
future sulfation
damage and … extend
battery life 5X!

Testimonials
"In 2010, the Cammack Village Police department began incorporating PulseTech solar chargers on the purchase of new
and existing patrol vehicles and to date we have had great success with these products."
Peter Powell
Chief /K9 Handler
Cammack Village Police
Little Rock, AR
"My old 2v cells are really starting to wake up, I've noticed the white sulfation flaking off and going away from the plates.
Ampacity is starting to really come up, It's been a long time since they were this hot....I'm glad I found your product
and I'm impressed how well they really work, they are worth far more than the market will bear."
David Hobbs
"I'm still running my deep cycle AC Delco batteries in my boat that I bought in 1999. I take them out each Winter and
alternately charge them (2) monthly with a pulse tech trickle charger. You don't have to sell me on the technology!"
Douglas Sutton
We would definitely recommend the PulseTech charging systems to any company or individual who had vehicles which are
not operated on a daily basis, and have had issues with discharged batteries not capable of starting their equipment
when required."
Michael Schoch

Peterbilt of Las Vegas
"I have my boat parked on some property that is off grid and I attached the 2 Watt SolarPulse to keep the battery in peak
condition. The boat is set back in the trees so I pulled the panel out in the open to collect the most amount of sun. I
drove right over the panel and pressed it into the soft ground leaving a nice bend in it. I put it back in the sun and
looked over and sure enough the LED light was glowing bright, it still works! I remembered a discussion about the
construction of the panel and how it was not glass like other brands but I never would have expected it to withstand
that kind of abuse. Great job PulseTech!!!"
Ray Pfaff
These batteries were originally installed in April 1992. This makes these batteries 17 years old! 2 PowerPulse modules
have saved me over $2,000.00 in batteries and the hassle of changing them out. These products definitely do what
they say they can and then some!"

"I am happy to inform you that the Xtreme Charge has officially been tested and recommended by the Motorcycle Riders
Club of America! In fact the final results were a 100% approval rating and out of the 11 testing criteria the Xtreme
Charge scored a perfect 10 out of 10 in the three of the eleven testing criteria."

Testimonials
"The arrival of the charger was opportune: we are rebuilding a motorcycle which had a 30-year old battery we
RECHARGED using the Xtreme Charger, just to see if it would come back!! The next morning, my husband left his
ignition switch on his truck on, draining the battery. Three hours on the charger and it started. Better than buying new
batteries each year."
Melinda Derfler
"Works as advertised! My Harley battery, despite being 6 years old, was on its last legs or so I thought. After a few weeks
on your charger, new life has been breathed into it and now it turns over the engine like a brand new battery. Plus it's
holding a charge better than ever. You guys are building a great product."
Wade Ramsey
Montgomery, AL
"I own a motorcycle training company with a fleet of over 50 motorcycles. I tried it on roughly 3 year old battery. I tried
multiple times to charge this battery with my other charger and it just wouldn't charge. I hooked it up to your charger
and the next day it showed a full charge. I was a little skeptical so I put it in one of my bikes and it started
immediately. It has been 3 weeks now and the battery is still holding a charge. I love this charger now! It is going to
save me a fortune in battery cost. I whole-heartedly recommend this product."
David Tolbert
Motorcycle Training Academy
Colorado Springs, CO
"The Pulse Charger works great! It paid for itself in only a month and a half. I have recovered six very expensive batteries
already. They were going to be thrown away and now I use them every day."

"Fishing is a full-time job for me. Since installing a PulseTech battery maintenance system on my boat batteries, they hold
a charge much longer. This is very important to me since my boat is essentially my office."
Terry "Tackle" Tuma
Fishing Professional & Freelance Writer
Minneapolis, MN
"I have a 40-foot, performance cruising sailboat with two large 12-volt batteries. These batteries would only hold a charge
for about 24 hours. I would go out cruising and they would be drained by the time I got back at the end of the day.
Then I installed a 12-Volt PowerPulse on each. My batteries improved quickly. Now, even after living on the boat, the
batteries will last about a week before I have to recharge. I am very excited."
Paul Zimmerman
Santa Rosa, CA
"I have at least ten to twelve product evaluations going on with my customers all the time. Not once has a PulseTech
product ever failed or not improved a battery."
