As soon as the HD SAE connectors are available will be getting a Micro-start. Keep us posted!

Brought the micro start to an event this weekend. Got to use it twice. Both times it worked like a charm. First was a cold blooded 950SE (not mine ). Fired right up. The second was for a Husky. Tried several times but something was up with the electrical system and the Husky just wouldn't stay running. Not the fault of the micro start.

The only issue I had was the clamps. They are surrounded by plastic and were next to impossible to clamp on to the terminals. Ended up just pressing the clamp to the negative terminal on the Husky. I think they are designed that way to prevent accidental shorting but perhaps different length leads would be better with a bit less clamp thickness.

Otherwise it worked as advertised!

Longer leads would generate more resistance / heat upon use.

The cables are on the thin side compared to most jumpers.

Does this battery have some sort of current control to limit the flow?

sae connector/pig tail

hovering over the Buy button and wanted to know if the SAE jumpstart/Battery Tender pig tail will be available shortly?

Is there an ETA on when I will be able to get one of those? Should I hold off a week or two for my order or will it be months out?

Recent posters.
You probably should contact Mfgr.directly with your questions.
AntiGravity does not seem to reply frequently to this thread.

Looks very interesting,will probably buy after the Holidays,unless they come up with a Black Friday or similar deal.
May even get one for wife and daughters vehicles,more practical than waiting around in a questionable location for someone to come along to jumpstart.

I would like to be able to buy the SC-1 with jumper cables and a 110v charger to use as an automotive jumper as well as being able to limp a car into the shop (ie alternator not charging).
With the warning to get the micro starts off the down vehicle within 30 seconds, they may not be suitable for my limp in needs.

But.......... it just so happens that we are introducing our latest product...

It is the worlds smallest most powerful battery and no one in the industry has anything to compare to it. It is called the XPS "EXTREME POWER SERIES" line of batteries (2 models) ... So we taken our smallest battery case and filled it with pure, unadulterated awesomesness of power! We call it the SC-1 and it is 4" inches long x 1.25" inches thick x 3.25" inches tall...

It looks like our original 4-Cell but it can actually start V8-trucks and also does 1200cc Twins very easily... and its WATERPROOF (or more correctly said water tight) So you can submerge it with no ill effect. It can also hold a charge for close to a year.

It is NOT meant to be a replacement battery for an adventrure bike... the capacity is too small... what it IS meant to be is a redundant safety battery. Meaning you stick it on the bike somewhere or in your pannier (not connected) and have a back up available to flip your bike no matter where you are. At 13 oz and being so small there is NO reason why anyone should not carry this in there truck, car, bike or whatever. The cool thing is that it is lifepo4 so you can leave it connected as the emergency battery if you ever to have to get back to civilization. We will have a kit for it soon that allows you to just plug it in to a Micro-Start Harness to do the jump starting if needed.

So you understand the SC-1 is LIFEPO4 based which is safe to leave attached to your bike or car if you have to use it as a regular battery.... the Micro-Start is Lithium Polymer and CANNOT and SHOULD NEVER be left attached to your vehicle after it jump starts it.

YOu can get info here, http://antigravitybatteries.com/extr...ower%20series/ (webpage not completely active yet... can't order yet)


Check the video below...


Hey this is awesome.. was gonna go with the micro-start but this suits my needs for a backup battery better.

Order inbound!
