Reduced Weight = Increased Horsepower!
Physically speaking, shedding pounds is like adding more horsepower to your vehicle. You don’t have to have a McLaren P1 or a Porsche Boxster to have a lithium battery in your vehicle! EarthX lithium batteries provide incredible cranking power and last much longer than traditional lead acid batteries. EarthX batteries are typically 80% lighter than lead acid batteries.
For example, if you have a 50-pound lead acid battery, you can replace it with a 10-pound EarthX battery, now that is some weight savings! And to reduce this amount of weight, there is no less expensive way to drop 40 pounds for the price of switching from a lead acid to an EarthX lithium battery!
EarthX lithium batteries are ideal for performance race cars or automobiles where weight and horsepower are crucial factors. To keep costs as low as possible, these batteries feature less amp hours than traditional lead acid batteries. If you drive every day, your charging system will keep the battery charged without issue but if you want to sit with your engine off and listen to your radio, keep in mind that you’ll have less energy to do this.
How to choose the right lightweight battery for your vehicle? First, consider the amount of current that your alternator puts out. Once you know the max amperage output, find out how many cranking amps you need to turn the engine over. Match these factors up, and you’ll know which battery to choose.
- The ETX1600 is 8.9 pounds. Max charge current rating is 160-amps. Delivers 1600 Peak Cranking Amps (PCA). If your alternator puts out more than 160 amps, you need 2 ETX1600 in parallel.
