Default EarthX ETX36D Lithium Battery

I am doing a few upgrades to the Nytro before snow flies and a lightweight lithium battery was on the list. I did a bunch of research and it seems like earthx is the best (most expensive as well!) Looks like this is about an 11 pounds weight savings for $350.

I live in ND so cold was a serious concern. In reviews I saw they are using these in AK with success so I thought why not give it a try. I also always carry my antigravity lithium microstart just in case (you need to buy one of these!).

I will be posting some picks. I got the earthX today and it is about the same size as the stock battery just a little bit shorter. I know what 10 lbs feels like, but when you put them each in one hand it is amazing the difference. If you think about an extra 10 lbs hanging high up on the side of a sled it is quite a bit.

I will be posting pics and performance updates throughout the year.

Had one in my wife's apex for a few years and it's always started the sled. Even at -30F it has always started. Thinking of getting another one for my sled.

that would be unfortunate, i have an email in to earthx to figure that out for sure.


here is a size comparison, like i said it is just a little bit shorter than stock



on my cheap scale i show a 10.41 lb weight loss.

at a purchase price of $350 this mod cost $33.62/lb weight loss.

I have one on the way. I want the extra crank power. Don't really care about the weight loss. It's a bonus

Bought one of these for my Boosted Viper. Sled fires right instanly run for a few seconds then quits, if I keep firing it up it throws a couple codes ( never looked to see what the codes were) put the factory battery back in fires up and runs perfect. Battery was/is fully charged.

I have been using earthX for 2 years. No problems. At -5F it took 4 starting cycles over a 10 minute period to start the nytro
