When it comes to weight reduction, it’s difficult to beat the cost-to-benefit ratio of a lithium battery. We replaced our NSX’s heavy AGM battery with Antigravity’s drop-in Group-35/Q85 lithium battery and keep it in top form with the CTEK lithium charger.
Reducing weight in a car is almost always a good thing. Enthusiasts often have no problem spending thousands of dollars on carbon fiber hoods, lightweight seats, or titanium exhausts. While these options often accomplish that goal, they come at the expense of making a car more of a ‘racecar for the street’. To many, this is not a problem, but when it comes to bang-for-your-buck weight reduction, a lightweight battery is often a far better solution with additional benefits and no drawbacks.
AntiGravity Batteries is an industry-leader in providing aftermarket lithium-ion batteries to the automotive, motorcycle, powersports, and motorsports industries.
AntiGravity Batteries are revolutionizing the industry with proven, reliable, “intelligent” lithium-ion batteries. Since our NSX is a daily driver and there is plenty of room in the factory location for the battery, it made the most sense to use AntiGravity’s Group-35/Q85 Lithium Car Battery.
This battery has an insane 1,500 Cranking Amps, 40 Ah (amp-hours) capacity, wireless Jump-starting with a Keyfob remote, push-button jumpstarting via a button on the battery; all while weighing in at 13.6lbs.
The built-in Battery Management System (BMS) protects the battery from over-charging and discharging in additional to thermal protections which make AntiGravity batteries some of the safest and longest life-cycle lithium-ion batteries in the market. We are pairing this battery with CTEK’s Lithium-Ion charger for when the car sits for long periods of time when we do the next major mods.
On top of the battery we can see the positive and negative terminals, the built-in handle that folds out of the way, and on the lower left of the battery sits the push-button jump starter.
The built-in electronics will prevent the battery from going dead and damaging the battery, while keeping reserve power to be able to jump start itself in conditions that would otherwise leave you stranded. This push-button jump starter is an amazing, convenient feature that makes Antigravity batteries a must for cars that are not always driven frequently or on a battery charger religiously.
