The 12V 300CCA 5Ah PowerStart® PS5001 lithium Starter Battery is a very lightweight and compact product. It uses high-performance cells with Lithium Iron Phosphate LiFe (LiFePO4) delivering extreme powers. They are ideal for your motorcycles, trucks, construction equipment, airplanes, LSA, quads, jetski and other applications. A charging status LED display is located on the top of the battery. It allows you to know the estimated state of charge of the Lithium 12V 300CCA starter battery.
Compared to lead-acid batteries, PowerStart® PS5001 starter batteries offer:
high charge/discharge currents,
80% weight gain,
Extreme starting power and a large pulsed discharge power reserve,
Optimum safety and a longer service life of about 10 years thanks to its lithium-iron phosphate technology and integrated BMS system.
The Lithium 12V 300CCA PowerStart® PS5001 starter battery is a compact product using Lithium ion cells. It delivers very strong currents to easily start internal combustion engines. Unlike lead-acid batteries, the voltage of the PowerStart® battery drops slightly during start-up. This delivers constant power to the starter motor.
The Lithium 12V 300CCA PowerStart® PS5001 starter battery incorporates an innovative control system (BMS Battery Management System) to ensure a very high level of safety during use. The BMS constantly monitors and balances the battery cells. This is to protect it and preserve its lifespan. The battery is protected by a waterproof ABS case. It is splash-proof and dustproof (IP56 protection class).
Our Lithium 12V 300CCA lithium starter batteries are therefore completely non-flammable! In summary, the BMS can be used to monitor the status of individual battery elements, such as:
Real-time cell balancing for optimized lifetime
Too high charge or discharge currents
Batteries with a better ecological footprint
PowerStart® products are lightweight, high-performance and environmentally friendly. The Lithium 12V 300CCA starter batteries directly replace older generation batteries. The latter are inefficient and harmful to the environment. This is due to the use of heavy metals and the difficulty of recycling (lead batteries VRLA, AGM, etc.).
PowerStart product is covered by a 2 years commercial warranty.
Does my PowerStart battery will fit with my vehicle alternator ?
Alternator are usually regulated and provide a voltage between 14.2V and 14.8v when operating. PowerStart battery has a built-in BMS that is able to limit charge current when voltage is greater than 14.4V : unlike conventional Lithium starter batteries, the BMS does not immediately cut-off charge as soon battery is reaching maximum voltage, but it will decrease incoming current using a PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) device until battery is totally charged and balanced.
This innovative BMS system allow full protection and charge, even if alternator is not properly regulated or if it delivers a voltage greater than battery max charge voltage.
How safe are Lithium-Ion PowerStart batteries ?
PowerStart batteries are using Lithium Iron Phosphate chemistry (LFP) that is one of the most safe Lithium-Ion technology. This chemistry is not subject to thermal-runaway, is non-flammable and is considered as non-hazardous by international regulation standards.
Each battery is fitted with a high quality Battery Management System (BMS) that ensure a safeguard role during battery operation. The BMS is designed to deliver high power in complete safety for a very large spectrum of applications,
What can i use PowerStart battery for ?
PowerStart batteries are designed to start Internal Combustion Engines or to run application that needs high level of Power for a short time.
PowerStart are commonly used for Motorbikes, scooters, Quads, Jet-ski, snowmobile, but also for microlight, LSA and private aircraft starter batteries.
After removing your old batteries, place PowerStart battery in the same way. You may use the same cables to reconnect PowerStart battery.
How long does a PowerStart battery last ?
PowerStart advanced lithium-ion technology will provide you with thousands of engine start cycles as soon the battery is properly operated and engine to start in working properly.
What is the Battery Management System (BMS) and how does it work ?
Each PowerStart embeds a built-in BMS. This BMS is a high-tech design that manage two main aspects of battery during operation :
Protection features :
Low Voltage Protection
Over Voltage Protection
Short Circuit Protection Switch
Reverse Polarity Protection Switch
Over temperature – Automatically shut-down battery until normal temperature recovery
Balancing features :
Internal cell balancing – Automatically balances PowerStart cells during battery operation. Balancing algorithm has been developed to ensure perfect balance between cells throughout battery life.
