I have the 5.0 and I've started mine 3 times now, this year, in the cold 45-55 and have no issues, starts right up.
Has anyone been able to get the proper charge leads/connectors and proper charge parameters for their speedcell battery as stated in this post above? I’ve message them and waited for a response several times finally gave up, and just yesterday decided to try again. I run they’re 8 cell 5ah battery In all of my bikes and love them but during the winter storage I’d prefer to have the proper leads to use my chargers. (Been into the RC hobby just as long as I’ve been riding this is ever since I can remember.) so of coarse I have my favorite charging equipment and would prefer to use mine as I know they are all calibrated to spec. My speedcell battery’s are fine I just want to know how well they are balanced during the off season so I can monitor for cell issues. I would just buy the charger they sell but already have better charge equipment. I also have been trying to find out what cells they are using now being A123 is no longer. I believe someone else has picked up where they left off but this I am not sure of. All I know is speedcell still advertises they use cylindrical cells which I have found far superior to prismatic in this type of application you want safe reliable cells and A123 are amazing cells.We include proper velcro with each battery to you can cut it/secure how you see fit. The tray is only provided for the Supersport 2.5 (4-cell) in a 2015+ R1 application on request.
the 2.5 Supersport provides plenty of cranking power for a 2015+ R1 street or track (We suggest the 2.5 for the 2015 R1 street or track)
We get all of our cells from A123 systems, located in Michigan and we use only premium US partners to make our product. We only use the A Grade cells and hand select for for batch sorting. This ensures our batteries are only of the highest quality and ensure longevity.
Other makers use prismatic material like gel packs (found in cell phones and laptops), this is simply not appropriate to handle high amperage discharge events like starting a motorcycle its actually downright dangerous.
We have a charging unit that connects to the bayonet connector on top of the battery (JST-XHR is not appropriate for this application, its just the cheapest) our IP67 rated MIL connector pushes out water and debris when connected while also providing positive lock feeling.
The power supply itself is an industrial grade power supply (similar to high grade LiFe/Po chargers used in hobby RC racing) we 3rd party out(we make our connector and supply charging parameters
Superbike Unlimited has these chargers and other Speedcell genuine accessories available as well.
We suggest getting a charger if your running 2+ batteries, running a total-loss charging system, or are a dealer etc. Most consumers wont need these with proper care of the battery.
If you have a similar charger from RC racing or are in the IT industry etc and just want the leads/connectors and charging parameters (experienced users only) we can supply that alone as well.
No problem we are here to help. We stand behind our product 100% and we are here to support our valued customers and dealers.
we hope every R1 on this board runs a Speedcell:gengar:
