The Lithium 12V 280CCA 5Ah PowerStart® PS5000 starter battery is a very lightweight and compact product. The entire PowerStart® product line is designed with high-performance cells of Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) technology delivering extreme power.
The PowerStart® PS5000 Lithium 5Ah 12V 280CCA has a battery status LED display. This is located on the top of the battery. It allows to know the estimated state of the charge level.
Compared to lead-acid batteries, PowerStart® PS5000 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.
Direct replacement of the lead-acid battery
The 5Ah 12V Lithium Starter Battery PowerStart® PS5000 has been designed to replace Leaded Starter Batteries advantageously.
It is used for competition vehicles and applications requiring very high currents.
For an efficient and powerful start
The Lithium 12V 280CCA PowerStart® PS5000 starter battery delivers very high currents. This makes starting internal combustion engines easier. Unlike lead-acid batteries, the voltage of the PowerStart® PS5000 battery drops slightly during start-up.
This delivers constant power to the starter motor.
The Lithium 12V 280CCA PowerStart® PS5000 5Ah Starter Battery has been designed to replace Leaded Starter Batteries advantageously. The battery incorporates an innovative Battery Management Systems (BMS) control system. This ensures a very high level of safety during use. The BMS constantly checks and balances the cells of the Lithium 12V 280CCA PowerStart® PS5000 Lithium Starter Battery. It protects and preserves its lifespan.
Our Lithium 12V 280CCA 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
The battery is protected by a waterproof ABS case. It is resistant to splashing water and dust (IP56 protection class).
More environmentally friendly Starter Batteries
PowerStart® products are lightweight, high-performance and more environmentally friendly. These batteries directly replace older generation batteries which are inefficient and harmful to the environment. In particular, 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.
