Does anyone have any experience with this brand of battery?

ETX24D - EarthX Motorsports


Saw it at the NYC MC show and it looks to be a great product.

I am looking for personal experiences with this particular brand.

Hasn't there been a rash of lithium batteries, in 'hover boards' and such spontaneously catching on fire? The airlines don't want lithium batteries in your checked baggage either. Seems a few have been known to also spontaneously ignite.

Here's an idea, let's place a lithium battery a couple feet under a motorcycle gas tank, yea, that's the ticket.

No sir, not for me thank you very much. But like I suggested earlier to MrM: step up to the plate, spend the money for the Earth to X lithium battery, install it and let us all know how it works out.

So far it doesn't seem anyone else has been willing to spend $350 for an as yet, unproven and untested motorcycle battery.

But first please ensure your motorcycle insurance is up to date and it includes loss of use to damage by fire.

Default LiPO4

I rogered up for one from a large autoparts chain two years ago. Before buying, I researched back to the US manufacturer, IIRC one of two mass-producing them for powersports/motorcycles.
The literature inside the box referenced the need to trickle charge with a lithium-suitable charger on a periodic basis. I didn't do so, and the battery seemed to be all done (slow starts, not no starts) at 14 months (12 month warranty).
I say seemed to be, because the new replacement is not performing better than the one I brought in. The bike's charging system etc was checked and rechecked at the dealer. So, I suspect the spread in quality of batteries is as wide as was referenced in the recent 'hard start' thread.

One of the reasons that I liked it, and bought another, was the fact that it made a significant difference at first light-off, particularly in cold whether. The lithium batteries don't carry a lot of reserve, but the first discharge tends to be stronger than that from lead acid.

Ah jeez, just re read and realized I forgot to get my 'thinker skin' IAW post 59...
