Default Installation and Review: AntiGravity 12 Cell YT12-B Ultra-Lightweight Lithium Battery

Recently we had a discussion about lightweight vs. OEM batteries for us in our sleds. This discussion led me to order one of these new ultra-lightweight lithium batteries to try out in my sled this season.

Anti-Gravity Batteries.

http://antigravitybatteries.com/

Advertised as...
The Antigravity 16-Cell

The Antigravity 16-cell has MASSIVE power, it has ultra small foot print being about 4.25″ inches W x 4.75″ x 3″ but start bikes as big as 135 Cubic inch Hi-Performance Motors… This is a great battery for a Touring bikes, Custom builders who are seeking to lower the seat or hide the battery. Or serious Adventure riders.


A small box arrived in the mail today with my new battery in it!


The battery arrived shiped via US Mail, Priority.
And while the box had been banged up a bit, the contents were pristine!


The battery was TRIPLE Wrapped.
Twice in bubble wrap


And then again several times in Cling Wrap.

When placed on the scale it weighs in at 3.53 Pounds


The OEM Battery weighs in at 14.38 pounds



Net Weight Savings = -10.85Lbs !

Note:
If you opted for the 12 cell version, you would save an additional 0.8lbs
I wanted the extra cold cranking amps just in case I run into some crazy weather in Canada this winter.

When placed in the battery compartment there is SIGNIFICANT empty space left over!











The battery is now in the far right rear corner of the battery compartment.
There is a good 1.5 inches of side to side space that will have to be filled with Something to stabilize the battery.



And just under 3/4 of an inch of space in front of the battery that will have to be filled as well.

Just got the following note from AntiGravity Batteries and really thought I should share this with everyone.

THIS is the kind of letter that I love getting from a manufacturer!!

These guys clearly take pride in their product and want that pride to show through to their customers.



Hey Chris,


That is cool your writing it... but unfortunately that battery is demo off the press and not quite how the customer will be getting the battery.... That packaging was done like that because we didn't have our new retail box... and it looks fairly bad as if we package our product in bubble wrap....we don't ever.


Customers will get a retail box and a foam lining and the nice dome stickers, not those little stickers I cut out for positive and negative....The performance of yours will be fine but the presentation of how the product come is not in line with what the customer will get. I'm just a little bummed about showing a USPS priority box with bubble wrap as the battery packaging... Our new retail boxes just came in and are bad *** and product image is heavily important to us...


But thanks for starting a thread...


Regards,

Scott-

Ten pounds, thats a nice weight savings off of the front end!
The next step is to put that puppy in the freezer and see how it cranks over your sled!

Or am I the only one who does stuff like that?!!
