What is battery sulfation?

Sulfation is a natural occurrence in all power sport batteries.  It is the prime cause of early battery failure and occurs when sulfur in the electrolyte forms crystals that attach to the lead plates and then act as “insulation” keeping the battery from accepting a charge.  Sulfation begins when batteries become discharged, generally from less than normal use.
