Now you can never be stranded with a flat battery thanks to the lightweight Antigravity Re-Start Battery which includes a built-in jump-start feature.
Small jump-start battery packs have been available for some time and are a great accessory for riders as they also charge your phone and other electronic equipment.
However, these Antigravity Re-Start Batteries include a jump starter feature built into them.
So if you’ve left your bike’s lights on overnight and find you have a flat battery next morning, you are not stranded. No need for a push start!
Just remove the seat or fairing and manually push a button on the battery to activate the jump-starter function.
Antigravity Batteries of LA say they will soon have a remote keyfob available which activates the restart feature, saving you some bother.
These lightweight motorcycle batteries are available online from $US224.99 for the AT12-BS Antigravity battery which replaces your bike’s YT12-BS lead/acid battery and weighs just 1kg.
There are six sizes in the range right up to the ATX-30 at $US399.99 to replace a YTX30 OEM lead/acid battery.
They are also available in Australia at many motorcycle retailers through importers Carlisle Tyres & Accessories. Click here to find out where they are stocked.
All Antigravity Re-Start Batteries have a new four-terminal-post design for connection on either right or left side connections.
They also come in direct-fit OEM sizes, so there is no foam needed for installation.
Antigravity Batteries started in 2009 and claim their batteries have two times the cranking power of normal lead/acid batteries for easier starting.
They also claim to be the first lithium-ion powersport battery with a full battery management system that actively balances the lithium cells while protecting the battery from over-charge, over-discharge, and over-temperature conditions.
Service life is claimed to be up to two times the lifecycle of a lead/acid or other lithium batteries and they come with a three-year warranty.
