What do they say about the charging requirements for these ?
Whats the warranty state ?
Now I've never bought a Lithium Iron type automotive battery
, but when you read about,
all the blather about whats required in the way of voltages and chargers, I'm a shade wary.
Some folks do seem to report they work OK though.
I sent an email to Motobatt
customer service and got an interesting response today that doesn't match their advertising. Motobatt
customer service made the following statement: "We do not recommend Lithium batteries
for anything outside of racing applications." Of course, this was nowhere to be seen on their advertising or any dealer advertising that I saw. The warranty is 2 years. The battery
has some unique attributes. There is a circuit board internally that limits high charging voltage and shuts down when the voltage is too low to keep from running the battery
flat. It also has a thermostat that turns the battery
off in the case of heat exceeding their specs. I was really excited about the 300 CCA. Oh well, back to the 210 CCA with the MBTX14AU AGM battery
I'm going to go ahead and order a Motobatt
for the Mk3 since I have had exceptional results with Motobatt
in multiple motorcycles and ATVs.
