Features:
  • Made in the USA. Why it matters:
    • Superior craftmanship; rigorously tested; high-quality parts.
  • Due to shipping regulations regarding shipping lithium batteries, the EarthX batteries can only be shipped via FedEX or UPS Ground.
  • The difference between the ETX680 and the ETX680C is physical size. The "C" is for compact.
  • Designed for a 60 amp alternator or less
  • 12.4 Ah of reserve power with an amazing 680 cranking amps!
  • LED battery fault light indicator
    • The indicator can be plugged into your control panel.
    • Battery Management System (BMS) redundancy accurately monitors cell voltage, state of charge, and resistance.
  • The ETX680 meets the requirements from Rotax engines as an approved lithium battery for use.
  • Made in the USA with imported cells

Product Description

Free Standard Shipping!

Order today and receive free standard shipping on your EarthX ETX680C Lithium Battery for Experimental Aircraft & Race Car with 60 Amp Alternator. Only valid in the contiguous 48 states and not valid with any other offer.

The difference between the ETX680 and the ETX680C is physical size. The "C" is for compact."

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.

Engineered and assembled in the U.S.A.

Fault Conditions

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.

What our Customers are saying
EarthX customer service is excellent
February 8, 2018
by on February 8, 2018

The EarthX ETX680C was my choice for an aircraft application, but when I took the battery from the shipping box and rotated it in my hands, it went "thud" within it's own case. Something substantial was free to move inside the battery case, not withstanding the fact that the terminal voltage tested normal full charge. I contacted EarthX via their email portal and got a response within 30 minutes !! They shipped a replacement the same day. The new battery, without a "thud", was in my hands 2 days later, along with a prepaid return shipping label for the "thud" unit.
Customer service doesn't get any better than that.

GIVES THAT 912S A KICK
October 25, 2017

I HAD ANOTHER (BRAND) LITHIUM BATTERY FOR 6 YEARS TIL IT DIED BUT IT NEVER TURNED THE ROTAX912S LIKE THIS EARTHX 680C DOES. LOOKS LIKE A GREAT BATTERY AND ESPECIALLY THE FACT THAT IT HAS AN INDICATOR LIGHT THAT GIVE ONE AN INDICATION OF BATTERY TROUBLE. I MOUNTED THE INDICATOR LIGHT IN A SPOT THAT I WILL NOT MISS IT IF SOMETHING DOES GO WRONG. I DON'T EXPECT A PROBLEM BUT IT'S NICE TO HAVE A BACK UP SYSTEM. TELL YOU HAW THINGS GO IN 8 YEARS WHICH IS THE POSSIBLE LIFE OF THE BATTERY.

Earth X Battery
July 6, 2017
by on July 6, 2017

I purchased the Earth X battery to replace 2 Odyssey batteries I had for my Lycoming O320. The battery arrived in very secure and padded box with in 7 days of order. The battery is extremely light and my weight went from 30Lbs down to 4Lbs! This has helped my weight and balance dramatically. The engine cranks over much faster than with 2 Odyssey batteries and the alternator refreshes the battery to full charge with in minutes of run time. The extra crank power is very noticeable. We will see how long this battery lasts but based on history from others, I expect much longer use than with a lead acid battery.
