Hi Scott (Antigravity), great products.

I'm just wondering if any SAE connector plug accessory, out from your Micro Start unit?
I'd like to connect by the SAE connectors to my heated gear (Powerlet jacket liner & glove liners) while off the bike.

Is this possible? Use the XP-1 or XP-3 units as portable battery power to run heated gear continuously while I'm disconnected from the bike.
I have SAE connector on the end of my Powerlet harness connections.

Thanks.
Dave

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.

This thang works! I disconnected the battery cables on my F150 6.2 liter. Hooked up the microstart and started it 4 times one right after the other, on a cold engine. I bought 3 - one for me, two for presents!

First test

I'm not bashing this product, but here's the result of my first testing of the product.
I bought it on line using the ADV discount code " adventure" for $129.
Received it in 4 days ( Saturday ).
Charged phone, no problem.
Ran laptop, no problem.
I took it to work Monday knowing I had an acid test waiting. We have a JLG man lift with an industrial V4 gas engine. It is cold here, about 38 DF, the machine has a drained battery, and had been sitting that way for a few weeks.
Hooked up the cables, then plugged in a fully charger Micro Start. The machine turned over no problem but would not start. On the sixth crank the positive cable solder joint melted. Afterwards the unit showed three solid lights indicating the minimum cranking charge still remained and I think also that we did not over load the Micro-start battery unit during our acid test. I'll contact the seller for warranty of course.

Hey Fritz,

We will warranty it no problem... it reacted exactly as it should. The clamps melted because the load was to high for the unit. We have not testing on industrial motors, or other things outside of our industry.

So anyone interested in purchasing a MICRO-START... It works as intended absolutely and we will offer your money back if it doesn't.... BUT, it is intended for stock Auto and Trucks up to 400 Cubic inches, or Motorcycles and Powersports Vehicles. Outside of those parameters we don't suggest its use. We want happy and stoked customers, we made a pocket size jump starter and personal power supply but it is just that... a pocket size device with incredible power, but does have limitations. We will soon have larger beefier units designed for Diesels and more industrial applications, but a pocket size device really can't do somethings.... Please use it only as intended and you will have great results. Outside of that is a grey area and we don't want to oversell the product and get bad reviews.

We've had some really cool results and emails of people starting V-10s and other stuff, but honestly it is not intended for that use. Wait for our larger ones. But if you own a bike or average car or truck you will be blown away.

Hey all,

I had a chance to read a couple posts asking questions about the unit here... Sorry I have not responded for what appears to be pages, but often I don't get any notification that there is a post, and I don't check often. So please feel free to write to us at info@antigravitybatteries.com and we will respond very quickly.

Also we do have the Harness Kit now that does allow for you to connect a harness to your bike or car and then you can just plug in the micro-start to this harness instead of having to take off your seat and use the clamps to jump start. Additionally this harness come with a reducer tip that you can plug into it so you can still charge your vehicles battery using the standard SAE type plug. Basically our harness kit will replace your battery tender type harness with much thicker cable capable of handling the massive amps required to jump start the vehicle.

In January and February we will have some bigger models coming out and additionally a very small one about as big as a Galaxy Cell phone that will easily do you motorcycles and up to V6 cars...but it will be so thin you can stow it anywhere.

Was that a dead battery or just a low battery?
