Product InformationStore Part Number: LFX14L5-BS12

Overview

Replaces: YTX14AHL, YT12CL

The Lithium Iron Phosphate battery is the ultimate in weight versus power technology. This battery weighs in at only 2.27 pounds and offers an incredible 210 C.C.A. This is a drop in replacement for your Lead-acid battery, and will require no change to your stock charging system.

Shorai LFX batteries contain Shorai-proprietary eXtreme-Rate Lithium Iron prismatic cells (chemistry LiFePO4). They contain no poisonous lead, no acid, and do not create gasses during charge, as traditional Lead-Acid batteries do. Compared to lead-acid, Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries are also extremely light, have much lower self-discharge, do not sulfate, and are environmentally friendly.

This is the heavy duty LFX14A5-BS12 battery. It offers an incredible 210 C.C.A., and the Lead-Acid Equivalent of 14 amp hours. It weighs in at only 2.27 pounds and yet still has the power to spin over even the most stubborn engines. Not only does this battery offer incredible advantaged over the lead-acid battery in weight, but also in physical size. This battery will effectively take the place of a YTX14AHL in power, but it is not larger than a YT12CL battery.

We recommend using this battery in your regular commuters, your frequent play vehicles, and anything that may require that extra punch to start.

*BatteryStuff understands the importance of getting a replacement battery right away and usually ships all batteries the same day as ordered if received before 1:30pm (Pacific), however USPS does not guarantee delivery times with priority mail.

Comments

We recommend using these batteries in temperatures above 0 degrees Celsius. This battery may require spacers to make it work in your application. Included with this battery are foam spacers that will aid in fitting this battery. ** PbEq equals Lead-Acid Equivalent. This means that a 14 AH PbEq Lithium Iron Phosphate battery will perform the same as a 14 amp hour Lead-acid battery.

Shorai Lithium 14 AH PBEq
Pros: First off I am a mechanic with over 35 years experience in the field, covering everything from small engines to diesel rigs. I eat, sleep, and breathe fuel fumes. The battery is light as can be, has a pretty neat design, and does not use acid. Thats it in the \\\"Pro\\\" column.
Cons: It refuses to maintain a charge for more than a few days, even on the shelf, without the charger hooked up. Not a good thing if you plan on using it for ANYTHING away from the wall outlet. DO NOT BUY THIS BATTERY!
Other Thoughts: I design and build custom go karts and also have a restored 1980 Yamaha XS850SG. A classic if ever there was one. I put the battery in my bike and it just won\\\'t stay up to par. I had intentions of using them for my karts due to the lightness and ease of maintaining them. Not gonna happen in this lifetime. Do not get this battery if you want a reliable one.

**NOTE from BatteryStuff** Battery was covered under warranty for manufacture defects. Battery did not perform as advertised and Shorai honored their 2 year warranty.

LFX18A
Pros: I will tell you The Shorai battery is all that they say it is and more. One thing I am not used to is the incredible customer support and the OUTSTANDING factory suppport. I had to get creative with mounting the battery on its side in my bike because I needed to up size to a lfx18a stronger battery, The factory reps were fantastic and worked with me all the way through. My bike starts like a rocket now and I have room for tools in the batt box . Very happy
Cons: There are none.
Other Thoughts: It was such a great product I bought two lfx18a

Shorai Lithium Battery
Pros: Works great, strong start and keeps charge for long period between uses. Eliminates hassle of battery tender or staring/running bike just to keep battery charged (I have 5 motorcycles and hate rotating the tender between them). Phenomenomally light weight.
Cons: Fitting the spacer foam around the battery is a minor nuisance but once done the battery wont shift or rattle.
Other Thoughts: The case around the battery encloses mostly air, since the actual battery is so small. I would be interested in just the battery internals and connectors in a compact case; Then the battery compartment could be used for storage of other items. I will buy more of these as my old batteries expire.

Best battery I have found to date
Pros: So far so good with this amazingly small lightweight battery. I have other issues with my 1981 bike at the moment but the battery is amazing.
Cons: Took some time to fill the gaps left by the much smaller battery, but the fill material is included.
