    Just want to give a little plug for their customer service. Called ( wish I could remember his name ) at 4:45pm asked some questions, he was very courteous and answered all my questions. I said ok, he said I will package it up and get it out. I live one county over, had it next day. Battery worked, light as hell. As far as long term, time will tell.

    Here is an update after about a year using the Antigravity battery. The rest of last year was uneventful. The Antigravity started the bike every time without much hint it was different than a big heavy lead battery. About mid August I had to put the bike aside to do some top end work.

    It sat all fall and winter until this week when I finally completed the engine work. It was a little below freezing that morning and the summer blend gasoline was 7 months old so it required a lot of cranking before it finally fired. The Antigravity battery just kept cranking and cranking it over with no hint of getting low after sitting around for 7 months without a charge. I'm sold.

    Is the conversion from PbEq on a 20 cell battery 13. 2 amps or thereabouts?
    22x.6=13.2 amps ?
    Thanks

    the new A123s are 2.5.... 5p x 2.5 = 12.5 Actual Amp hours if tested as a standard testing.... did I answer this in our emails? Sorry if I missed it.

    So I bought an Antigravity battery from Scott over a year ago now for my KTM SDR with the stock Yuasa battery that was getting weak. Well the year rolled by and my KTM wasn't getting ridden much and it was on a battery tender so I kind of forgot about the Antigravity sitting in my office. This weekend I sold my Daytona and realized I'd be riding the KTM a lot more and it occurred to me I'd never installed the new battery. I was pretty certain that sitting in my office unused for over year had at best depleted the charge beyond starting capacity and at worst ruined the battery from discharge. I decided to install it anyway (PITA on the KTM) and hooked it up. Turned the key on and the electrics whirred to life...hit the starter button and the bike roared to life instantly! Damn impressive for a battery sitting unused for over 12 months. I'll be using more of these on my other bikes as the lead/acid batteries go bad.

    Great product...Scott

    Hi Scott,

    Do you offer any batteries with an integrates BMS yet, or do you plan to in the near future?

    Cheers,

    Quick question on chargers.

    For a YTZ7 ... is there any reason (aside from cost) not to go with an 8A charger? On the face of it, it would appear to charge the battery quicker.

    Hello Antigravity,

    I have 2003 Husqvarna TE610E. It is a 600cc single, electric start only, no kicker. I just might ride into the dark beyond, drop it in a creek, flood the heck out of it (water, gas or both) and have a difficult time restarting it. For a dual sport it has a decent 240 Watt alternator.

    The stock battery is a YTX-14BS.

    Which of your batteries would you recommend? It looks like the small case 12 cell would work. Is the 16 cell totally overkill, if you were spending you grandmother money would you do it?

    Thanks!

    Eric

    Is there something the matter with your site today? The "loading... please wait" status lasts a loooong time when I push the Add To Cart button.

    Does the baby Jesus not like internet battery sales?

    To others... the site is right and works correctly again.

    Went into the garage this weekend and started the KTM SDR with its Antigravity battery (now a couple of years old) after sitting in my garage all winter during the worst winter in recorded history in SE Michigan. I normally move the bikes down into the basement but snow came early last year and never went away :eek1

    I have the Triumph with an AGM battery on a tender but don't have one that works with the Lithium so it sat all winter without one. Put the key in the ignition expecting the worst as that's always what has happened to my lead acid batteries in the past left unattended for long periods of time. Turned the key and VROOOM...the KTM fires up like I just put it away last night.

    Doesn't get any better than that! :wings:bow
