Lithium Ion Batteries

Saw these on TV the other day, Lithionics Battery

They are pretty cool, looks like the diesel battery has enough cca to only run one battery. They have a never die feature that will not allow them to completely drain you can also use the never die feature to disable the truck via remote, which would be a good theft deterrent. These batteries have a 2000 to 3000 cycle life which is about 10 times of a lead acid battery. Also Lion batteries hold their voltage a lot better than conventional, so you won't see a dip when starting.

I havent seen the price of the diesel battery yet but I'm guessing they are pretty proud of them. My batteries are fairly new so I can't be the guinnea pig yet, but I will be looking into getting one of these batteris when the time comes.

I'm finishing up an airplane that is using one of their batteries. Very light and small size with a push button kill switch.

Found this on the site for the diesel battery.



WARNING:
Lithium batteries are designed for operating in environments under 60C/140F. If you have an under the hood installation, inform Lithionics and we will provide a special heat shield system.

Just talked with them for about 30 minutes, the batteries are essentially built to order. If it's under the hood they install the heat shield inside the battery. They seem to be a great company from talking to them. The battery should last for more than 15 years. I will keep gathering info on them, and might be ordering one real soon so I can be the guinea pig.

They ain't cheap. I don't see the benefit for the trucks. In aircraft and racing it's all about weight.
