I picked up 2 of the MicroStart XP3, the vanilla version.

Charge up, it came almost fully charged, then went looking for test dummies.

GSX-R 1000 at a friends shop with a dodgy battery, disconnect battery, start at first attempt.

Hmmm, what next. Aha, an F-150 parked nearby, thought about all the electronic gizmos that need backup power and moved on.

Then this...

From 2013-10-21


Battery terminal off, clamp on the XP3, start....

Crank, crank, crankkkkkkk, vroom vroooooooom....

Leads were very hot
Battery pack hot, still able to hold on though.

I like the way the clamps are protected by plastic, you do not want a short circuit on a Li-Ion battery or whatever new wave tech the batteries are made of.

The motorcycle shop is ordering 5 units.
