MSRP: $99.99
We here at ATVTORTURE have several machines in our test group and as a result we don’t get the chance to ride each one as much as we’d like. There are also the inevitable logistical problems that need to be overcome each time we want to ride. Is it going to rain?...Who is watching the kids?...Who in the test team is off?...Do we have a photographer?. Therefore, any type of ATV malfunction can create a real problem.
We find ourselves constantly working on our quads. We seem to be either adding a new accessory, modifying another or simply performing preventive maintenance. One thing that is often overlooked is battery maintenance. The new sealed batteries on our quads do not leave much room for error, by the time we realize the battery is dead it’s usually too late. Not too mention the fact that a lot of the newer quads on the market do not come with an auxiliary pull start.

Have you ever gotten on your quad, turned the key, pushed the button and heard that dreaded “click “ – “click”. Hopefully you were in your garage and not on the trail when this unfortunate event happened.

No need to worry any more about the above problem happening with the PulseTech® XC100-P Xtreme Charge™
<table style="border-collapse: collapse;" id="AutoNumber3" border="0" bordercolor="#111111" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"> <tbody><tr> <td width="52%"> The PulseTech® Products Corporation XC100-P Xtreme Charge™ is a Five-Stage Maintenance Charger. You can use it for evaluation and testing. A unique test feature evaluates the battery thoroughly during the initial connection. It also determines the appropriate charge rate based on its size and condition. It tests the battery continually for as long as it is connected to the charger to maintain the optimal bulk or float charge rate. This test step incorporates a "Bad Battery" indication if it determines the battery is faulty and cannot be re-charged.

It's designed to be a maintenance charger for any type of 12-Volt lead-acid battery. By imposing only the appropriate amount charge rate, the battery is maintained safely at its proper operating voltage indefinitely. Conversely, if the charger is connected to a discharged battery, its bulk charge capability (2.5 A actual/5 A effective) will re-charge the battery rapidly and safely so it can be put back into service quickly.

A proprietary computer-integrated technology measures both voltage and current to determine the appropriate amount of charge the battery is able to accept at any given time. As the pulse and saturation charges improve the battery's condition, the charge rate may be increased safely to an optimal level. This proprietary algorithm protects the battery from the risk of damage due to overcharging.
The XC100-P features variable float charge. PulseTech's intelligent circuitry imposes the correct amount of charge rate as determined by the continual evaluation of the battery's condition. The charge rate may be as minimal as 0.2 A during typical float up to the full 2.5 A for more deeply discharged batteries. This variable float charge ensures optimal charge rate is applied to the battery.

PulseTech's unique and patented PULSE technology increases the duty and life cycles of any size or type of 12-V lead-acid battery by minimizing the size of the lead sulfate crystals. This allows a battery to accept as much charge as possible. PULSE technology helps ensure that your new batteries will stay in like-new condition while older batteries often improve dramatically. Duty cycles are typically extended from three to five times for all types of lead-acid batteries! Xtreme Charge is ideally suited for AGM and maintenance-free batteries (from less than 10 Ah to over 150 Ah). The combination of patented pulse technology and proprietary charging algorithm typically allows it to charge these high-performance batteries more fully. It also maintains a safe charge profile for traditional batteries including flooded, fill and charge and gel.

</td> <td width="50%"> We had a chance to test this system on our Honda Rincon, which needed a battery. The results were remarkable. We never got a chance to use the included quick disconnect cable that can be hard wired to your battery. We found that the included alligator clips were just as easy to use for our application. The thing I like about the quick disconnect was that I can hook this up to my quads battery and have the piece of mind that it will be fully charged when I have a chance to get out for a quick ride around the track or into the wilderness to explore new trails.
The LED display was very easy to read and tells you the status of the current charging system. It even has reverse polarity protection which I had a chance to test due to my ignorance when first trying to use the XC100-P.
In summary the PulseTech® XC100-P Xtreme Charge™ is the perfect companion to your ATV maintenance arsenal. It’s easy to use design makes it perfect for those that like a “Plug and Play” function. This charge is so user friendly, that I see us using it a lot more often now. It has the operating instructions on the back of the actual unit. Unfortunately, we could not find a hard copy instruction manual. We felt this would have been useful if packed with the unit from the factory.
