We have been looking at the Liteblox product for a while now, but for some reason that all we had been doing, looking an admiring, but after a conversation with one of our customers in Texas who is building one of our carbon fibre GTR GT3 conversions we decided to get in touch to discuss the build and see what they could do for us … and I must say, why on earth didn’t we do it sooner, because the product is absolutely amazing.
For our GTR build they recommended their LB28XX The flagship high performance carbon fibre battery, in a thermally & mechanically decoupled CFK housing with implemented bracket, intelligent electronics with integrated, active kill-switch, it really is a work of art.
If you are thinking of reasons to upgrade to a liteweight carbon battery, lets assist with what this epic battery has to offer apart from the crazy weight savings over a normal car battery, these are just some of the amazing features this battery has to offer.
1, huge weight saving over a standard battery, saves 17-22kg (38-48lbs) to a standard starter battery
2, Plug’n’play replacement – fit for hardly any production car
3, Wireless interface for wireless data monitoring via Smartphone App
4, Maintenance-free due to intelligent BMS-System (over-/undervoltage, over-/undertemperatur, overcurrent & short ciruit)
5, Innovative & smart electronics for kill-switch via Smartphone App in two different programs: 1.) I.K.O.S. – Intelligent Kill-Operation-Switch: effective disconnection of the LITE↯BLOX from the vehicle due to overload or via Smartphone (emergency or extended sitting periods), similar to the common FIA kill-off switch 2.) A.V.A.T. – Active Vehicle Anti Theft:
6, while all consumers are still being provided with energy, the LITE↯BLOX will instantly shut down at any theft attempt
7, latest premium cell technology (A123 ANR26650M1B V3)
8, rapid charging (optimal für Start-Stop)
9, marginally self-drain when not in use (sitting time >250days)
10, fail safe due to innvative concept and premium materials
11, DMSB homologated (Lithium Ion battery RLB2016-27/17)
12, tested in professional motorsport
The fact its a carbon battery along with the weight saving alone make it worth the upgrade but a must have for any carbon fibre junkie, but with all he other features it really is a must have.
