Exige V6 Dry Cell Battery Recommendation

Recommended Posts

Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

Time for a new battery on the CR,  current one's no longer holding charge.
It appears the one used on the CR is no longer available and its secured differently to a standard V6 one.
Clamps over the top rather than at the bottom.

Anyone got recommendations on a replacement?

go for that: https://www.liteblox.de/shop/liteblox-lb19xx-motorsport-batterie/ 

by the way: what does the original battery in the V6 weigh?

interesting product.

I have followed the configurator : https://www.liteblox.de/fahrzeug-konfigurator-liteblox-batteries/ and get the same model :)

The "biggest" model is just 2,6KG...

So ! I have been reading this post, which is pretty much the only one about batteries on the web for the v6 ... Can we have some feedback please from people who went for the lithium solution for a couple of months now ?? 

 

Also the links are not up to date anymore of course, what is exactly the shorai model you went for ? A lithium battery will last more than a week without the charger ? In case of a holiday with the car, and you never know she does not move for a week ..

 

Also SSc propose that kit now, looks good value. Spending more than 1000 pounds for an install is a bit extreme to me, I sometime am away for the week, if I forget to plug the battery, that would be an expensive mistake ..

Page 8 of my build thread ;)

There is no better weight saving option than to invest in a lithium battery. My rationale of buying the option from @Seriouslylotus vs Shorai is documented in my build thread.

No problems since installing and I don’t always connect to a charger that said haven’t tested anything longer than a week unconnected or car unused.

Not sure if this helps but I’ve left my 380 which has a lithium battery for 3 weeks uncharged and not driven and it started fine

Just dragging up this old thread.. how are people getting on with Lithium batteries? Anyone got any new recommendations? Need a new battery, thought I might as well lose some weight in the process.

Recently fitted an Aliant YLP30 purchased from Demon Tweeks. Produced in house in Italy. 

Just 1.7kg and has started the car 5/6 times without any issues. Will report back in a few months with any issues.

I’m sure it looks closer than it is but please insulate those terminals or at least that cage!

Looks good value for that. Are you keeping it on a maintenance charger all the time?

Hi looking to get a new battery at the moment - does this battery fit in the standard OEM bracket? Any problems with starting ? Many thanks

It does not fit the standard bracket as is much smaller. I fashioned one using a piece of alu plate and the existing battery tray bolts. 

No problems with starting even after being left off the battery tender for 7 days. 

Very impressed so far.

You will want to ditch the standard battery holder as it’s VERY heavy!
