The AutoRace line of 12-volt batteries has been developed by Ballistic Performance specifically for auto racing. They have a capacity of 20 amp-hours and are capable of putting out a burst of 1000 cranking amps.*
These lithium-ferrous-phosphorous batteries have many advantages over conventional lead-acid batteries in racing applications. They are much lighter than lead-acid batteries (about 30 to 45 pounds lighter than an equivalent size lead battery). They can deliver a huge burst of energy and recover quickly, making them ideal for starting. They are totally dry, so they cannot leak in any position. They don't self-discharge as quickly as lead-acid batteries (only 10% per year, compared to about 4% per week), so they stay charged much longer when not in use. Ballistic Batteries are made in the USA.
Measures 9.25" L x 6.9" W x 3.25" H (235mm x 175mm x 83mm H), about half the height of a standard Group 35 automotive battery. Weighs just 6.5 pounds (3 kg). 3/8-16 UNC female terminals (positive on right side). A BMS (Battery Maintenance System) port between the terminals allows periodic balancing of individual cell charges using the Ballistic Performance Advanced Battery Charger/Balancer (Part No. 1178-252, sold separately).
* At 70° F. This is not the same as "Cranking Amps" (CA) or "Cold Cranking Amps" (CCA). CA is measured at 32° F, and CCA is measured at 0° F. Ballistic batteries generate heat as they recover from a cranking effort. Regardless of the temperature outside, a Ballistic battery can be brought to 70° F internal temperature simply by cranking your engine!
