Yes, lead-acid batteries will sulfate over many charges and discharges. The
sulfates will coat the plates in the battery and reduce the current
capacity. I actually built hundreds of battery sulfator units as a contract
job for a guy who was selling them overseas. I have the circuit if anyone's
interested. (It is public domain.)

Ed, I wonder if "sulfation" (is that a real word?)  damage might bite you in
the bum with some of these?
Sounds like sealed batteries even more prone.
Sorry if not appropriate response -- I don't always read too good.
