Lithium Batteries have been around for years, but its only in recent years that tech has evolved enough that they have become a reliable light weight alternative.
HUGE WEIGHT SAVINGS!!!
Please see the "Eqv" where the Lead Acid / Gel Battery is listed.
For example GSXR1000L7 uses a YT12A-BS - the listing is "YTX14H-FP eqv YT12A-BS"
Replacing a standard lead-acid battery with a JMT lithium-ion battery can save up to 5 kg of weight without any significant effort. Well list the lithium weight compared to a lead acid battery.
Some batteries are equipped with one or more spacers, which are glued underneath the battery with the supplied adhesive tape, so that the battery fits exactly into the battery box.
The battery is completely watertight and does not take any damage when the motorcycle is cleaned with high pressure.
All batteries are equipped with a battery indicator.
Just press the test button. If all 3 blue LEDs light up, the battery is full (ful) charged. If only 2 LEDs are lit, it is only half (med) charged. At the latest when only one LED is lit (low), the battery must be charged.
The following advantages speak for JMT lithium-ion batteries:
- approximately 1/3 of the weight of the comparable lead-acid battery
- unbeatable ratio of cost / weight savings
- can be installed in any position, as no acid
- does not contain heavy metals
- balanced discharge / charge of all cells by balancer
- Quick charge with high charging current possible (up to 90% in 6 min)
- very low self-discharge (max 5% per month)
- even at high temperatures still good performance up to 60 ° C
- safe technology and long service life
Due to the specific properties, lead-acid batteries can only use 30% of their capacity,
While nearly 100% of the capacity can be used with lithium-ion batteries.
For this reason, the lithium versions of the JMT batteries for the same starting power require only 1/3 the capacity of a comparable lead-acid battery.
An even charge state of all cells is also ensured by a built-in processor ("balancer").
The dimensions of the lithium-ion batteries match the dimensions of the original lead-acid batteries with the aid of adapters.
The connections are also identical, which means that the battery can be replaced in just a few minutes without further adjustments.
Please note that only suitable chargers may be used for charging. We recommend the NOCO range of chargers and these can be found HERE
The maximum recommended charging currents can be found in the technical data below
Under no circumstances may chargers be used to try to desulphate deep-discharge batteries below 10 volts with a voltage of more than 14.9 volts before starting the actual charge.
The maximum charge voltage of 14.9 volts must never be exceeded. There is a risk of explosion.
The manufacturer guarantees a sufficient starting capacity up to -5 degrees Celsius.
JMT lithium-ion batteries use iron phosphate (LiFePO4) as the cathode material and use the lithium polymer process in manufacturing.
As a result, they can neither rise nor explode in flames during normal operation.
The technology and the manufacturing process ensure the highest safety standard for lithium batteries.
- 12 V maintenance-free lithium-ion battery
- Charge current recommended 1.5 A
- maximum charging current for quick charge 15 A
