Shido Lithium Motorcycle Battery - LT12B-BS LION
Customer Product Reviews
Great battery and ultra light
Bought this battery to save a little weight in my track bike. This battery is at least two thirds lighter than the original battery I had so Pound for £ weight saving is great. Also cranks the bike over easier to. Just need to make sure you have the correct lithium charger for this battery. Also charges in lightning time to compared to conventional bike batteries. The little battery charge gauge is a handy touch to
So far so good. Incredibly lighter than my previous one. Nice addition to it ( not sure it was displayed) is the little built-in power indicator, basically helping you to know how charged is your battery at the click of a finger..
The battery is very light and fits my bike perfectly, it all so came with a nut and bolt fitting set. As the battery came it was fully charged and ready to fit. As it is more expensive than normal lead batteries the reviews are a lot better for this battery lasting longer.
Only rated as a good as its not been put under any load or long term use. Used on a Duke 848, only been on the bike a couple of months same fitting and size as a lead acid battery. kept charge OK, but it has had an Optimate on it so wouldn't really expect anything less. However, massive weight savings over lead acid, and, it really throws over that twin with more oomph than the original.
Time will tell
Bought as a replacement for my old lead acid battery. Arrived on time and fitting a doddle. Same physical size as the old one, but light as a fag packet. So far kicks my 1158 Ducati over like there's no tomorrow. Time will tell though regarding life and charging issues.
