Business opportunity: Antigravity’s all new RE-START Li-Ion battery
Gardena, California based Antigravity Batteries has released what it describes as an all-new “game-changing” RE-START series of lithium-ion starter batteries for motorcycles and powersports vehicles.
The new RE-START battery, with “built-in jump starting”, makes being stranded by a dead battery a thing of the past.
For example, if a rider left his/her lights on overnight, this would normally be a dead battery emergency requiring jump-starting, push-starting or assistance. But with the new RE-START batteries, you simply press the RE-START button located on the top of the battery to access the battery’s reserve energy, then start the vehicle and drive away.
There will also be a remote key fob button available, which will allow the rider to trigger the RE-START feature without having to remove the seat or a fairing to access the battery.
“The new RE-START batteries are the most technologically advanced motorcycle/powersports batteries ever built,” says CEO Scott Schafer.
“They are the first lithium-ion powersports batteries with a full Battery Management System (BMS) that actively balances the lithium cells while protecting the battery from overcharge, over-discharge and over-temperature conditions.
“These built-in protections make for the longest service life possible, up to two times the life cycle of lead/acid and other lithium starter batteries on the market. We’ve all been left stranded by a dead battery. It’s awful, frustrating, and in some situations, if you’re in the middle of nowhere, it can be very dangerous.
“Our objective as a leader in lithium-ion technology for motorsports was to create a vehicle battery that the customer can rely on and not worry about getting stuck in the middle of nowhere with a dead battery, and I’m happy and proud to say we have done it with this new battery!”
All Antigravity RE-START batteries have a new 4-terminal-post design, which allows for easy connection for the user, and the ability for the dealer to carry less stock since one battery will work for right or left side connections on the vehicle.
They also come in direct-fit OEM sizes, so there is no foam needed for installation as required by other brands. All the new RE-START batteries come with a 3-year warranty. Sizes are available for most modern motorcycles and powersports vehicles, and also race cars.
Established in 2009 offering high power, lightweight and compact lithium-ion batteries for racing motorsports vehicles, Antigravity has since grown into a leader in lithium-ion battery products for all channels of motorsports. Located in Los Angeles, California, Antigravity Batteries” is a company dedicated to building the best in lithium-ion products for the motorsports community,” says Scott.
“We offer the highest quality, most innovative and diverse line of lithium-ion battery products to meet the demands of all motorsports and powersports enthusiasts and beyond - from our multi-award-winning MICRO-START mini jump starters to our wide range of lightweight, high-power lithium-ion starter batteries for motorcycles and more.”
