Schaumburg, Illinois: The average weight of a lead-acid or AGM battery in a Sportsman drag race car is believed to be around 37lbs or heavier. In contrast Altronics’ new Powerlite lithium battery with 900 cold-cranking amps weighs 7lbs.
Available with 12 or 16 volts, the larger Powerlite 1,050 amp unit weighs 8lbs and the 1,200 amp 9lbs. Further, for large high-compression motors Altronics has just released their 16 volt 920SS series. Powerlite possess the latest technology, have maximum output, and are extremely light.
Importantly, their energy empowers them to bump the motor with the starter when checking valve springs, valve lash, and clutch settings without fear of damaging the electronics. Of course the 16-volt option provides faster cranking, runs pumps, fans and nitrous solenoids more efficiently, and always provides adequate ignition with sufficient voltage for peak starting.
Measuring 9.7 x 3.8 x 8.2in, Altronics’ Fred Bartoli says the Powerlite charges much faster than the typical lead-acid or AGM battery and has a 10-year life expectancy.
A “Green” product, the Powerlite range of lithium batteries is environmentally safe, covered by the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) directive, which means the batteries are biodegradable and therefore land-fill-safe.
To mount the Powerlite range of batteries, lightweight billet aluminum battery frames are available, which weight 1lb and cost $149.99. And speaking of price Altronics’ Fred Bartoli declares Powerlite offers a decisive edge on pricing:
Powerlite 900 amp lithium battery with 15 amp charger $999.99
Powerlite 1,050 amp lithium battery with 15 amp charger $1,199.99
Powerlite 1,200 amp lithium battery with 15 amp charger $1,399.99
