The EarthX Lithium batteries (LiFePO4) are designed to be a light-weight, maintenance free replacement of your standard lead-acid battery.
These batteries will work with any vehicle charging system and "modern" lead-acid battery chargers, thanks to the exclusive built-in electronics (Battery Management System, BMS).
No other motorsport lithium battery manufacturer offers a battery with built-in electronics to protect it from over-discharging, over-charging, plus keep the cell's charge level balanced.

This table shows the most common fault conditions and possible causes.
|LED Light||Voltage||Possible Cause||Recommended Action|
|Slow Flashing (5s on / 5s off)||Less than 12.8V||Battery over-discharged (due to faulty charging system)||Charge battery. Once charged, the light will stop flashing.|
|Slow Flashing (5s on / 5s off)||Less than 13.2V||Weak or failing cell||Charge battery. If voltage drops below 13.2V within a few days, discontinue use.|
|Slow Flashing (5s on / 5s off) (>1 hour time period)||13.2V - 14.6V||Weak or failing cell||Discontinue use. If in flight, this is not an immediate issue unless it is in conjunction with a charging system failure.|
|Slow Flashing (5s on / 5s off)||Greater than 15.2V||Over-charging (due to faulty charging system)||If in flight, shutoff charging system immediately. Aircraft over-voltage protection is required if alternator charging system is greater than 20 amps (i.e. over voltage crowbar circuit)|
|Slow Flashing (5s on / 5s off)||13.2V - 14.6V||Cell to cell charge levels are not balanced||May come on briefly during periods of high current charging until the cells are automatically balanced. Try charging with a plugin charger, like an Optimate Lithium charger.|
|Solid Light||Any voltage||BMS electronic issue||Discontinue use. If in flight, this is not an immediate issue unless it is in conjunction with a charging system failure.|
|Solid Light that turns off after 3 minutes||Any voltage||Short Circuit protection was activated||Nothing neds to be done.|
|Short Flashing (2s on / 2s off)||Any voltage||High battery temperature (> 65°C / 150°F)||Let battery cool down prior to cranking or charging.|
Bought the battery and so far it’s everything that I read about ..I have a 2014 -110 Harley Davidson CVO Ultra ..
The standard batteries from Harley even when new ,would have some difficulty turning the high compression motor over .. and on top of that would only last 2 yrs tops ..either always on battery smart charge (1st one ) or charging ever two weeks or so ..
This new one .. Wow ! It cranks over so much better, you immediately hear the difference..
I have it 3 weeks now , so who knows the lasting effects..but it looks very promising 😁
One other thing ..the battery is less wide or thick ..and much lighter..I used styrofoam to fill in gap ..seems to be working great ! Might want to consider the battery holder they sell .
