Guess the answer is no. The guy mentioned the first bath of SAE adapters were accidentally made backwards. Looks like instead of using them on the portable battery itself he decided to make use of them by mounting them on a battery harness in order to be able to use HIS harness with the blue plug for charging the bikes battery with a battery tender.

Since I use high amp SAE cables on my bike and make SAE connector jumper cables using 8 gauge cables I thought it would be really slick to be able to plug one of these guys directly to those cables.

At $25 a pop for those battery harness cables that would cost me more than the Antigravity battery itself if I wanted one on each bike.

Looks like I'd have to just cut off the battery clamps and make my own.

I bought the xp-3 a few weeks ago and love it. I do have a question though. I know you aren't supposed to leave the unit hooked up when the vehicle is running, and I can assume that is because of the charging system on the vehicle trying to overcharge the micro-start and damaging something.

My question is, can this unit stay hooked up to your running bike IF the stator/charging system has gone bad?

I had a stator die on my bike a few years ago and it left me stranded on top of a mountain! Would this unit have been able to help me in that instance?

I bought 2 of the XP-1 units. One for my wife's car and one for me to split duty between the bike and car. Had to use mine this morning to jump start my car. Worked like a charm.

Received my XP1 in January and have used it to boost my wife's truck and to charge phones while at our off grid cabin, very happy with this piece of kit.

Can the XP3 be recharged off the bike? Let's say I want to use the XP3 at night time to recharge my camera and Bluetooth headset. During the day, can I plug it into my bikes 12V system to top it off? Assume the charging system of the bike has a high enough output.

If so, this would be particularly useful on multi-week rides, providing a charging source for accessories at night, and jump start power during the day.

Comes with AC and 12V charger so yes, you can recharge off vehicle socket.

I am guessing it would be slower than AC

My order was shipped and received in just a couple days.

When I noticed that I was sent a different cable, I emailed them and got a response within an hour. Since it was pretty late on Friday, they asked me to call them on Monday.

First call was answered by a real person and they got me squared away in under 5 minutes. Correct cable was shipped shortly after talking to them.

Hard to beat that kind of customer service in this day and age.

yet another review

Used the XP-3 to start a completely dead Ford Crown Vic with the big V-8.

It took a few tries since the car was sitting for nearly 6 months...but it did start.

The wire was a little warm to the touch where the fuse block is connected, but nothing that looked like it was a problem.

According to the LED's I'd drained it to a little above halfway with that jump.

Pretty fantastic product. It'll be traveling with me whenever I'm on the bike

Thank you all for your answers mates..

I'm the unlucky one then, no answer to emails, private messages nor web messages.. In three months.

Guess I'm missing something here, but just can't figure what... (????!!!!?)

My order arrived quickly, so far only used it to charge up a Go-Pro while doing an all day time-lapse. Worked perfectly (for that anyway), and barely used any battery life. Very happy to have this in my side case.

Thanks for the fast service.

I was at the outboard dealer yesterday and he was very interested. While larger boats usually have two batteries, most 16-20 footers only have a single engine.

My wife has used it twice now. When you put the key on to listen to the radio in our minivan, the gps also comes on and so after 20-30 minutes, the battery won't crank the engine.

used it again to get my 1150GS started when I managed to kill the battery cranking it over when it dropped to 22F. I was all packed up to go on a long trip and made sure I connected the pig-tail to my battery in the event i needed to use it again.

I also used it to charge a couple phones while we were camping.
