Application : These newly developed batteries are designed to replace the much heavier lead/acid batteries.
Safety : super B batteries are based on Lithium Iron Phosphate technology. This so called Lithium Ion technology as used in the super B batteries is the safest Lithium Ion technology today. On top of that our specially designed casing and electronics further increase safety and durability.
Capacity : super B 2600 refers to 2.6 Ah (Amps/Hour), which represents the real nominal capacity under maximum continuous load. How different this is from lead / acid batteries where manufactures provide a 20 hour rating. For example the 7 Ah lead / acid battery can be discharged over a period of 20 hours with a 0.35 Amp load. This is not very practical, as the same 7 Ah battery discharged with a 2,5 Amp load, for example a 25 Watt light bulb, will yield no more than 1.4 Ah of energy. The lead-acid battery, therefore, has less capacity when the load increases, which means that you can start more often with the super B.
Which super B suits your bike : In terms of starting current the super B 2600 is comparable with a 5 to 7 Ah lead acid battery. The super B 5200 is comparable with a 10 to 12 Ah lead acid battery. . super B 2600 . up to 250cc four stroke . up to 450cc four stroke, at an ambiant temperatur of 10 degrees Celsius and above . below 10 degrees Celsius we advise the super B 5200. . super B 5200 . up to 1000cc 4 stroke . up to 300cc 2 stroke
Starting Current : We use a 10-second rating instead of CCA for the super B batteries. The 10-second rating is easy to understand: it represents the amount of current a battery can produce during 10 seconds without being damaged. The super B 2600 can deliver a current of 150 Amps during 10 seconds. The batteries can deliver higher currents for shorter periods and lower currents for longer periods.
Charging : The super batteries can be charged with almost all motorbikes, up to a maximum of 14.4 Volts. Do not overcharge, as this will damage the battery. The super B charges much faster than conventional batteries: charging a lead- acid battery takes 7 to 14 hours, during which the internal resistance increases and the charge current decreases. The super B 2600 can be charged within 1 hour at a charge current of 3 Amps. If the charge current is increased to 6 Amps, it will charge in 30 minutes.
Charger : We recommend to use the appropriate super B charger to charge super B batteries. Do not use a lead-acid charger, as these chargers are optimized for a different battery technology and make use of methods for charging and safeguarding which are unsuitable for super B batteries.
Lifetime : over 5 years.
Connecting the battery : The super B batteries are designed with screw terminals, this makes it easy to replace the stock lead-acid battery. The super B batteries are shipped with two bolds and plastic end caps to fit to the wires on the bike.
Self discharge : As super B batteries have a very low self-discharge rate, the batteries will last for several years in storage.
F.I.M. / Stock Racing : The F.I.M. has changed the rule for stock racing regarding battery use:
126.96.36.199 Battery: The Battery may be replaced. If replaced, its nominal capacity must be equal to or higher than the Homologated type.
The F.I.M. has approved the super B batteries to be used as replacement batteries.
