Whether you love tearing up the trails on an ATV, hitting the highway on your motorcycle or taking your jet ski out on the open water, your choice of battery has a big impact on your vehicle's performance. So, what's the best powersport battery brand? X2Power lithium iron phosphate batteries last longer, recharge faster and are both lighter and safer than lead acid, AGM or gel options, and you can only get them at Batteries Plus.
Batteries Plus' X2Power lithium batteries outperform all other battery options. Due to their high temperature tolerance, lithium iron phosphate batteries degrade much slower than other powersport batteries, giving them life cycles of up to 2,000 cycles. That's four times longer than traditional powersport batteries! They're also two times lighter than a lead acid battery, providing you with much faster vehicle acceleration.
Lithium iron phosphate batteries charge twice as fast as lead acid batteries and have a very low self-discharge rate. This means they can be stored for long periods of time without losing their charge, making them the perfect fit for seasonal applications like motorcycles, ATVs and jet skis.
Lithium Iron Phosphate is the safest type of lithium battery in the powersport industry. They have excellent chemical and thermal stability, meaning that they stay cool in higher temperatures. This ability to remain cool also helps prevent them from venting gas.
In addition, each individual battery is outfitted with its own intelligent monitoring system that monitors and reacts to multiple voltage, current and temperature changes. This helps prevent it from overcharging or from suffering individual cell damage. Not only does this system make the battery safer, it also helps to maximize the battery's performance and battery life.
X2Power lithium is designed as a drop-in replacement for most seasonal powersport vehicles, including motorcycles, ATVs, UTVs and personal watercraft. Lithium batteries don't function as well in cold weather, however, so if you're looking for a replacement battery for your snowmobile, an AGM battery is your best option.
It is important that a lithium iron phosphate battery has a sufficient charge before it is installed. If your X2Power battery is below a 50% state of charge when you get it, you'll need to charge it before installing it.
When charging a lithium iron phosphate battery, it's very important that you use the right charger. Otherwise you could end up damaging your battery. Look for a charger that is compatible with lithium batteries. Many chargers will come with modes for different battery chemistries. You also need to make sure that the charger's voltage matches the voltage of your powersport battery. Batteries Plus offers a huge selection of battery chargers, including two official X2Power powersport chargers.
