The #1 cause of all battery failures is acid stratification. Acid stratification happens in every lead acid battery when the heavier acid in the battery's electrolyte separates from the water and assembles at the bottom of the battery's cells creating an area of very high specific gravity electrolyte. Discover deploys patented MIXTECH acid mixing technology and DRY CELL AGM acid immobilization technology as countermeasures against acid stratification.
MIXTECH is a patented technology built into every flooded Discover MIXTECH battery, that uses a vehicle's natural movement to continuously mix the electrolyte inside the battery to eliminate acid stratification. DRY CELL AGM technology suspends all of the battery's electrolyte in an absorbed glass mat that slows the heavier acids ability to separate from the water and to settle at the bottom of the battery's cells.
By eliminating or slowing acid stratification the battery maintains uniform charge and discharge activity across the whole of the battery's plates. Eliminating acid stratification improves active material utilization, sustains Dynamic Charge Acceptance and cycle life and prevents premature loss of performance and life.
