YT12B-BS Lithium Battery (GT12B-4)

The high-quality alternative with substantially higher starting power, longer life and considerably lower weight.

Lithium-ion technology offers the following advantages as compared to “standard” lead-acid batteries:

  •  starting current is up to 30% higher – over 40 CA (lead-acid battery: 10 CA)
  •  substantially longer life at over 2,000 cycles under JISD standard (the lead-acid battery only survives around 150–300 complete cycles)
  •  less weight; 1100 g as compared to 4,100 g 
     including distance spacers which hold the battery firmly and securely in the battery box – without any further adjustment work!
  •  no environmental contamination – contains no acid or heavy metals such as lead, cadmium or mercury
     contains no acid, cannot leak
  •  quick charging with the compatible charger – up to 90% within 6 minutes
  •  energy saving – stable discharge voltage and low internal resistance
  •  extremely safe – non-explosive and non-flammable

12 V
Length x width x height = 150 x 69 x 130 mm
Terminals: positive on the left, negative on the right
Charging current: standard 2.5 A, maximum 24 A
Cold-cranking amps (CCA): 290 A

Almost any high-quality motorbike charger that uses a pulse charging method and has an automatic switch-off can be used.
The keep-fresh-function of these chargers does not work with lithium batteries.

If you connect such a charger, it charges the battery once, then switches off and the users of the motorcycle using current would empty the battery although the charger is still connected.

To make a permanent connection possible, (f.e. in winter time) so the battery is always nearly fully loaded, you need special lithium chargers (f.e. CTEK).

Never use chargers that work with a charging voltage of more than 15 V (for example when working with high peak voltages for checking whether desulphation is required) - you find a note in the instruction manual of your existing charger!

Starting problems may occur at extremely low temperatures (below around −10° C) due to an increase in battery resistance.
However, the integrated management system means that this is less of an issue than with most conventional lithium batteries.
There is also a simple trick you can use: if the battery is not working well under extremely cold conditions, switch your headlights on for between 10 and 15 seconds. That warms up the battery and improves the starting power.

funktioniert völlig problemlos
Review by sam
systembedingt leichter und kräftiger ersatz für standardbatterien. funktioniert völlig problemlos und unauffällig. abgesehen vom preis kein grund mehr etwas anderes als so eine batterie zu kaufen. (Posted on 8/1/2017)
Zwei Batterien gekauft und zweimal nach jeweils nach einer Saison kaputt - Bin überhaupt nicht zufrieden - Ganz schlechte Qualität!!
Review by Axel
Habe mir vor zwei Jahren die erste dieser Batterien gekauft und war eigentlich auch damit zufrieden.
Nach der Saison ausgebaut und bei Zimmertemperatur gelagert. Im Frühjahr wieder eingebaut, Batterie war tot.
Hatte beim ersten Mal noch gedacht, dass ich etwas falsch gemacht habe und habe mir daraufhin die gleiche Batterie nochmals gekauft.
Aber, die gleiche Geschichte wieder. Auch diese Batterie war im Frühjahr tot und liess sich nicht mehr laden.
Fazit für mich - War ein teurer Spass und es wird für mich keine Lithium oder andere Batterie von Shido mehr geben. (Posted on 6/2/2017)
