Hey folks,

i've searched the site for Speedcell batteries but come up with nada. Was curious if anyone has used/seen a speedcell battery in a cx500. They are Lithium iron phosphate used in racer bikes i think... Wondering if these can be used with our bikes, and of course, I know this would need the mosfet regulator as part of this but was curious if anyone has used one before.

thanks

Technical Specs:

Capacity: 5.0Ah @ 13.2VDC

Discharge Profile: 240A Pulse @10 sec / 100A Continuous (above 12.0VCD)

Charge Method:
STD: 1.0A @14.4VDC x 240min
Rapid: 5.0A @ 14.4VDC x 48min

Weight and Size:
12cm (L) x 6.4cm (W) x 8.4cm (H) / 4.7in (L) x 2.5in (W) x 3.3in (H)

Rr that is not great advice sorry

Humankind being lazy wont hook it up once it will crank

Then some one will keep doing it till the time it melts down and starts

on fire or the starter solenoid sticks on from low voltage high amperage

And then it melts down ect to small is just

Dangerous and bad for the starter and wiring and

The battery

I agree that it's not great advice, it was somewhat tongue in cheek. I was assuming that it would be used for every start.

The usual reason that someone wants to use a small battery is to reduce the bike to the minimum necessary for operation. That is the cafe racer philosophy. Unfortunately on a bike like that there would be no place to carry the booster pack, except perhaps for a backpack on the rider.

Make it easy, get a kick start bike. My CB400 does fine without a battery.
Every time I hear lithium ion I see a burning hover board.
The air lines have severely restricted lithium ion batteries from passenger
carrying air planes.
