12V Lithium Ion Starter Battery

12V Engine Start Battery: A123’s Nanophosphate EXT™ lithium ion 12V starter battery sets a new performance standard for micro-hybrid vehicle applications by delivering a significant increase in cycle life, charge acceptance and a 50% weight reduction as compared to lead acid batteries. A123’s advanced chemistry and system design now offers excellent cold temperature performance that is on-par with lead acid, eliminating lead acid’s last remaining performance advantage over lithium ion for starter battery applications.


Primary Applications:

  • Standard lead acid replacement for all vehicle types
  • Enables mild hybridization for start-stop and micro hybrid battery systems
  • Optimized 12V power net system for improved fuel economy (disable alternator under certain conditions)


Key Benefits over Lead Acid:

  • Extensive Cycle Life: More than 4X longer life than lead acid provides lower total cost of ownership
  • Dynamic Charge Acceptance: Accepts high rates of charge and captures more energy from regenerative braking for improved fuel economy
  • Lighter Weight: up to 60% lighter than comparable lead acid batteries
  • Cold Temperature Performance: Excellent cold crack performance - on par with lead acid
  • Reliability: Real-time data and diagnostics protect the battery and prevent premautre failures, reducing service and warrantly costs
