Antigravity Lithium Ion Battery
The Ford Focus needed a new battery, and with the Air Suspension system the older battery was being taxed, and while it could start the car ok, the resistance on the batterty was increasing and struggling.
I thought about this a lot, and decidied to take the plunge and try out a Lithium Ion Antigravity Car battery. Specifcally, the Antigravity H6/Group-48 Car Battery - 60 Ah.
Here are the specs:
H6/Group 48 OEM Automotive Case size (directly replace stock battery). LxWxH: 10.75 x 7 x 7.5 inches. Amp Hour Options: 24 Ah, 30 Ah, 40 Ah, or 60 Ah. High Power: 24Ah=1000CA, 30Ah=1200CA, 40Ah=1500CA, 60Ah=1800 Cranking Amps. Exclusive RE-START Technology (Wireless Remote Jump-Starting). Complete Battery Management System built-in. Ultra Lightweight: Drop up to 40 lbs instantly! 70% lighter than lead. Safest Battery Technology using full BMS and Lifepo4 Lithium chemistry.
Here is some of the marketing speak:
First Battery with WIRELESS Built-In Jump-Starting! Wireless Keyfob Remote actuated Emergency Jump Starting. So you won’t be stranded by a dead battery ever again!
FULL Battery Management System (BMS) including Over-Discharge, Over-Charge, Short Circuit, Thermal Protections and Cell Balancing.
RE-START TECHNOLOGY: The RE-START Battery has self-restarting capabilities. It intelligently monitors its status and if it senses over-discharge it will put itself into a sleep mode, yet saves enough energy to allow you to RE-START your vehicle. Simply press the Wireless Keyfob.
OEM FITMENT: Exact Lead/Acid Replacement sizes. No additional modifications or trays necessary to install.
LONGER LIFE: 2x to 3x the lifecycle of lead/acid and other Lithium batteries due to full Battery Management system.
HIGH POWER: Up to 3x the Cranking Amps of similar sized lead/acid battery. Better Starting and higher voltage at start-up.
ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT: The Antigravity RE-START Battery can be as much as 70% lighter than the Lead/Acid equivalent. This equates to roughly 25-55 lbs of instant weight-loss just by changing out the battery! That makes the Antigravity Lithium-Ion Battery the most cost-effective weight-loss product hands-down, while offering better starting, handling and braking! A real performance value!
LOW SELF-DISCHARGE: The RE-START Battery does not self-discharge like Lead/Acid Batteries. It offers a longer storage time provided there are not excessive Parasitic Drains on the battery.
DURABILITY AND CAR SAFE: Much more resilient to vibration than Lead/Acid. Incredibly shock and vibration resistant; no liquids or acid inside to spill or drain out. Will not release dangerous Hydrogen while Charging and will not leak liquids that are damaging to your finish or chassis such as acid.
ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFER BATTERY: No Acid or Heavy Metals such as Lead, Cadmium, or Mercury. Always remember to Recycle your batteries responsibly!
I thought it was pretty cool how it has a remote jumpstart feature, that’s something I think every car should just have at this point. So now the car seems to handle the power load better, and I’ll update this with more as it ages. It’s a stock sized battery, fit with no issues, and so now I just need to put some miles and time on the battery pack to see if it does what it’s supposed to do.
