RS-30 lithium battery
 
Anyone seen this? I can’t find any reviews on it but it weighs 11lbs and has an auto shut off feature when it gets low. Also has a self jump start button when it shuts off. Seems too good to be true.

https://shop.antigravitybatteries.co...omotive/rs-30/

RE-START TECHNOLOGY: The RS 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 RE-START button on battery.

LONGER LIFE: Up to twice 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: Compared to a lead/acid battery the Lithium RS-30 is roughly 70% Lighter in most applications and can offer as much as an 80% weight reduction. This equates to roughly 25-60 lbs of instant weight-loss just by changing out the battery! To save this much weight in Carbon or Titanium parts would cost over $10,000 dollars. That makes the RS-30 the most cost-effective weight-loss product hands-down, while offering better starting, handling and braking! A real performance value!

ON/OFF FEATURE: The RS-30 can be turned On or Off for storage/transport purposes. During times of storage you can “turn off” the RS-30 to prevent over-discharge, then “awaken” it after months of storage to a full charge. Use the Sleep Mode as a Theft-Deterrent! Put the RS-30 into Sleep Mode during times of storage… with no power the car cannot be started or driven away.

CAPACITY INDICATOR: The RS-30 has an onboard Capacity Indicator (Fuel Gauge). This allows you to check the Battery’s “State of Charge”. Regardless if the RS-30 is ON or OFF you can check the remaining capacity of the battery.

LOW SELF-DISCHARGE: The RE-START Battery does not self-discharge like Lead/Acid Batteries.

DURABILITY: incredibly shock and vibration resistant, and no liquids inside to spill or drain out.

ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFER BATTERY: No Acid or Heavy Metals such as Lead, Cadmium, or Mercury.”

For $700 id say thats probably a fair amount of technology. Its a lot of scratch, but if youre trying to get every last pound saved, this seems like a good way to do it

So is this a good option for a street driven, non daily m3 you think? I’m not into trickle chargers or any of that hassle. Also don’t want to go on road trips with dead battery on my mind.

11lbs, auto shut off, and self push button restart are key features I like with this

How long can the battery hold the charge and have enough juice to start the car?

If its for a track car, Id just get a lithium battery for a lawn mower. Starts my car fine as long as its not cold outside. Only costs $120.

Not sure Id try and optimize CCAs for a daily driven car.

isn't manually switching a battery on/off just as much of a hassle as plugging/unplugging it from a trickle charger?


this battery also seems to be on the heavy side for a lithium ion

A couple of members have recently bought Antigravity batteries including myself. Most have gone with the ATX-20 Restart which can be had for less than $300 and mostly for track cars. Scott, the owner is a sponsor on the Rennlist forums and have started supporting their community with these.

I have reached out to Scott to see if they can start catering to our community as well and maybe bring a GB like they did on Rennlist. There is wealth of information on the Rennlist forums if interested in the mean time. I've been told they are testing on BMWs at the moment and Scott will reach out to me shortly to see how we can move forward.

Well that’s assuming it turns off, which it shouldn’t if driven every weekend. Also the car sits in storage, no outlets.

I like the safe off/push button on feature so I don’t have to worry. I’m just curious if these new features are reliable, as I’ve never heard of it before. And there’s no reviews of this battery anywhere.

I have a Braille GU1r for my daily driver and it is awesome! Similar to the posted battery, a little cheaper, definitely proven.

Great info, thanks! Id like to hear about your experience with this battery.
