just found brailles new lithium car batteris.
these might be the next item once the stockers goes out.







positives:

Lithium delivers a higher, cleaner voltage which improves the performance of every electrical component and has shown to provide:

• Quicker starting (a full volt higher than lead and less voltage drop during cranking)

• Improved engine management & data logging performance (more stable voltage)

• Less horsepower draw from the alternator due to efficient charging (5 times faster than lead),

• Lasts 3-5 times longer (especially under the harshest environments),

• Much more reliable (less than 1% failure rate)

• Significant weight savings. (up to 1/4 the weight)

• Don’t self-discharge, so if the battery is disconnected (no draw or via power disconnect switch), they can sit for over a year+ and still maintain over 13 volts to start the vehicle.

another new lithium battery

XS Power | TITAN8 | PWR-S5 12V Lithium Battery (Burst Discharge)



$599.99

This Titan8 Series Lithium Titanate Oxide (LTO) series uses a very high power lithium cell that is designed for very high burst output (up to 100 times its capacity) as well as very high charge current (30-60 times its capacity). This translates to a single 10Ah module that can support burst current up to 1,000A, and can accept 300A of continuous charge current. The built in 2/0 bussing allows up to 4 Positive and 4 Negative hidden direct connections to each module without the need for any external exposed bussing, while still leaving two easily accessible top terminals and four series or parallel expansion terminals to easily build a bank of nearly any configuration from 12V, 24V, 36V, or any configuration imaginable.
