    • Antigravity Batteries updates their lightweight Lithium-ion battery offering with three new options featuring wireless jump start (9.8 lbs)

      Great news for those looking to knock some weight off their car. Antigravity Batteries updated their lithium-ion lightweight battery lineup with three options which feature a brand new wireless key fob remote for emergency starts.


      Yes, that means should you return to a dead battery you press a button and you get a wireless jumpstart. This resolves an issue where with previous battery designs you would need to physically press buttons on the battery for a restart but also needed electrical power to pop the trunk and reach said battery.

      The new battery design also does not require a tray but will just pop right into the place of you old battery.

      Scott from Antigravity explains below.


      Scott from Antigravity Batteries here, I wanted to drop some information on our NEWEST Lithium Batteries... yes they are actually ground-breaking!

      To start, we wanted to make our newest battery accessible for more Vehicles and Customers. We found many people just wanted the EXACT SIZE that fit in their car. So that is what we did, the new batteries are a DIRECT OEM FIT. Meaning it is the same size as your stock battery, so you will not need a special tray or any other adapters or modifications to mount them. Most of you will just be concerned with the H6/Group48 size battery. So we did that size and also the H5 and H7. Plus we will have Group 35 ,and Group 51 and expand out from there. But the "H" sizes are used in most Euro Sports Cars including BMW, Audi, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, etc.... so these will fit them all.

      We have also made the batteries available in different amp hours. The Amp Hours Capacities available for the H6/Group48 model are 24Ah, 30Ah, and 40Ah. By offering different amp hours the Customer can choose a battery that is more tailored to what they are looking for. For example people who track and want the lightest weight possible might want the 24Ah (9.5lbs), a person who wants to have a solid Ah yet still benefit substantially from Lightweight can go with a 30Ah (11.5lbs) and a person who might have some Cameras, Radar Detectors, luxury options and other stuff on the Car might want a 40Ah Battery (16lbs). Keep in mind if you use a 24Ah battery you will not have as much time that the car can sit in storage compared to a 40Ah model.

      SUPER COOL NEW FEATURE ALERT!!! So one of the ULTRA-COOL items we developed into this latest battery (yep, first in the world) is a WIRELESS KEYFOB REMOTE that is used to operate our RE-START built in Jump-Starting feature. If you are not familiar with our RE-START feature, its basically a built-in jump starting for the battery, so in the event you ever come back to a dead battery you can awaken the battery with the Keyfob and start the car and drive off. So in effect you would never be stranded with a dead battery!

      - Weight of the Batteries H6/Group48 Case @24Ah is 9.8 lbs , H6/Group48 Case @30Ah is (11.5lbs) , H6/Group48 Case @40Ah is (16.5.5lbs) so you definitely have some options for dropping some weight.

      -Availability.... finished production will be at the end of February we expect to be shipping in first week of March. We are initially doing the 24Ah and 40Ah models, the 30Ah Version will not be in until April. I currently have 10 pieces of H6 @24Ah models and 10 pieces of H6 @ 40Ah that we have used to take pictures, and develop Marketing materials, some we will be sent Industry people, but unfortunately that is not enough to openly sell them yet. So early March if not a week before we can start shipping.

      Some pictures are below... if you have any questions please let me know.

        My goal is to get 200 off the car.

        Need to pick up scales...

The key here of course being once you engage the restart to actually drive the vehicle and allow the battery to be charged up and topped back off.

        Thanks for the answer, ps: what size should I order based on the image of the battery I attached above?
        An H7 is what I see listed but really you should be able to get away with the H5, H6, or H7 as the only difference is the Length..with H5 being the shortest and the H5 being the longest

Or if the battery is left to sit from infrequent usage will the chemicals inside degrade so essentially is there a lifespan in terms of recharge cycles, and if that isn't reached is there an "expiry date" for the battery. Pretty much like car warranties "4 years or 80,000km whatever comes first". But in this case it would be "x cycles, or Y years what ever comes first".
        We rate the battery to last 7-9 years which will of course depend on use, climate, ect..and technically this would be rated accurately at 2500 cycles but you'll honestly see other makes inflate their numbers to ridiculous values so it's something to be mindful of when comparing. These will also have 5 year warranty on them.

        Getting a battery under 10 pounds is unbelievable. Wow.

        I'll probably opt for the 30Ah at 12.5 pounds. I'm guessing that should save like 35 pounds over the factory 991.2 battery? @Antigravity Batteries can you confirm?
        35 is usually a good average figure as there will be +/- of about 5-10lbs depending on which option is currently installed but on the average your lead/acid battery is right around 50lbs

        And that is correct, the 30Ah option should be April where the others will be likely within a week.

        Doesn't the GT3 have a factory carbon roof panel? Or is the GT2 RS panel magnesium? Either way, Porsche has them...

        I wouldn't go w Porsche as it's $$$. I'm sure you could get it done at well known shop for less. The GT3 cf hood is already $18k. Forget about it!

        Oh I know was just saying we have factory lightweight roof options.

        I'm happy to just ditch the heavy glass and replace it with a standard panel.
