Proper Care and Feeding of a NiMH Battery

What does NiMH stand for? The material is Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) which has many advantages over other battery construction materials. What is meant by battery memory? Older generation and batteries with other chemical make-up were subject to a memory effect. This is when a battery must be fully drained before recharge or their capacity is reduced. The New Generation of NIMH batteries do not develop a memory effect and can be recharged at anytime during usage cycle. When uncertain about battery charge level or condition, recharge it. more...

Lithium Iron FAQ

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

What Is the Best Battery Charger for my Motorcycle Battery?

That really depends on the size and voltage of your battery. If you have a small battery, under 6 amps storage, the Battery Tender Junior may be the best choice. If you have a larger battery, and may want to use your charger for other purposes, the Noco Genius G-1100 or the Battery Minder Plus would be a good way to go. more...

What is the difference between Yuasa and Motocross batteries?

Not much really. Motocross is manufactured in the same factory, the same assembly process, at the same time as the Yuasa. The only difference is the label applied at the end of the manufacturing process. Motocross came about as a way for Yuasa to enter the ever growing aftermarket, without disrupting their already established brick and mortar new bike dealerships. This allows them access to a much broader market share, at a much more reasonable price point. more...

Will I Need to Charge My Motorcycle, ATV, or Snowmobile Battery When it Arrives?

Will a Small Charger Maintain a Large Bank of Batteries?

Quick answer: No. We recommend that you should size a maintenance charger to be no smaller than about 1.5% of your battery packs full rated value. If you need to replace charge that has been drained by use, we recommend you go as close to 10-20% of the full value as possible. more...

Lithium Battery Overview

Lithium Based batteries are quickly becoming a reasonable replacement for the 150 year old technology of Lead-Acid batteries. In applications where weight is a consideration, Lithium batteries are among the lightest options available. In recent years Lithium has become available in several chemistries; Lithium-Ion, Lithium Iron Phosphate, Lithium Polymer and a few more exotic variations. more...

PRI-G FAQ and Dramatic Benefits

By comparison, gasoline today is initially much cleaner than gasoline sold 10 or 20 years ago when it is first produced. However, today’s fuels are less stable today because they are produced through cracking processes versus the less efficient “straight-run” processes used years ago. As a result, today’s fuels deteriorate at much faster rates - resulting in excessive carbon build-up in your engine. Given the varying length of time it takes for fuel to be consumed after refining, it is wise to freshen fuels every tank full with PRI-G to ensure maximum combustion and performance. more...

PRI-D FAQ and Dramatic Benefits

Given the fact that literally thousands of fuel additives are offered on the market, engine manufacturers have no way of monitoring or testing the claims of so many products - making it difficult to determine specific products that are safe to use. However, PRI chemistry does not alter any fuel specifications issued by engine manufacturers - specifications by which manufacturers judge whether or not a particular fuel affects safe engine operation. PRI has been safely used in thousands of engine types. more...

What is the Difference Between the Terminal Type F1 and F2?

The SLA batteries we sell, up to 12 volts 15 Amp Hours (AH), commonly use the faston tabs as the terminal type. The F1 and the F2 are the terms we use to refer to the terminals. At first glance, they look very similar. These are flat blade type terminals which stick up at an angle from the top or side of the battery. These terminal types are designed to be attached with a push-on spade insert, either for your application or for charging. The F1 terminal is thinner, and the F2 is wider. more...
