Super B Andrena 12V5Ah Light weight Lithium Ion starter battery (previously known as Super B B5200, SB12V5200P-BC )
The Super B Andrena 12V5Ah Li-ion battery
contians a very high capacity and has lightweight (just 850 gram / 1.87 lb, about 80% weight reduction). The 13.2 V, 5200 mAh Lithium SuperB Andrena 12V5Ah battery
has a long life span and low self-discharge. The dimensions of the Super B Andrena 12V5Ah battery
are only 114 x 62 x 81 mm (LxWxH).
PLEASE NOTE: The capacity is relatively higher than a lead battery with the same capacity. This newly developed Super B battery
Andrena 12V5Ah is designed to replace the much heavier 10 to 12 Ah lead/acid battery.
The Super B Andrena 12V5Ah
Lithium battery is specially developed for semi-heavy motorcycles and engines (up to 1000cc 4 stroke and 300 cc 2-stroke) with semi-high compression.
This battery can be implemented on the following vehicles:
- Yamaha / Honda / Suzuki / BMW / Super Bike 1000cc, all models.
- KTM 300cc EXC 2-stroke, all models. Enduro 450cc bikes, all models.
- Yamaha / Honda / Suzuki / Super sport 600cc, all models.
- 450cc dirt bikes and 450cc ATV, all models.
The Super B 5200 starter battery is based on the safe Lithium Iron Phosphate technology (LiFePO4), better known as Lithium Ion.
The Super B 5200 starter battery delivers up to 300 Cranking Amps.
The Super B 5200 starter battery offers many advantages over conventional 10 to 12 Ah lead/acid batteries:
weighs less: as much as 80% weight saving; 1. lb / 850 grams;
recharges many times faster: within 5 minutes after starting your engine the battery will be recharged;
is much smaller: 1/3 or less of the space; 4.49 inch, 2.44 inch, 3.19 inch (WxHxD) / 114mm x 81mm x 62mm (WxHxD);
has a longer service life: more than 5 years instead of 2 to 3 years;
has a low self-discharge rate.
super B batteries are based on Lithium Iron Phosphate technology (LiFePO4). This so called Lithium Ion technology as used in the super B batteries is the safest Lithium Ion technology today. On top of that our specially designed casing and electronics further increase safety and durability.
Super B 5200 refers to 5.2 Ah (Amps/Hour), which represents the real nominal capacity under maximum continuous load. How different this is from lead / acid batteries where manufactures provide a 20 hour rating. For example the 10 Ah lead / acid batterie can be discharged over a period of 20 hours with a 0.5 Amp load. This is not very practical, as the same 10 Ah battery discharged with a 2,5 Amp load, for example a 25 Watt light bulb, will yield no more than 2.2 Ah of energy. The lead-acid battery, therefore, has less capacity when the load increases, which means that you can start more often with the super B.
We use a 10-second rating instead of CCA for the super B 5200 battery. The 10-second rating is easy to understand: it represents the amount of current a battery can produce during 10 seconds without being damaged. The super B 5200 can deliver a current of 300 Amps during 10 seconds. The batteries can deliver higher currents for shorter periods and lower currents for longer periods.
The super B 5200 battery can be charged with almost all motorbikes, up to a maximum of 14.4 Volts. Do not overcharge, as this will damage the battery. The super B charges much faster than conventional batteries: charging a lead- acid battery takes 7 to 14 hours, during which the internal resistance increases and the charge current decreases. The super B 5200 can be charged within 1 hour at a charge current of 6 Amps. If the charge current is increased to 12 Amps, it will charge in 30 minutes. Do not charge the battery with more than 20 Amps as this will damage the battery.
We recommend to use the appropriate super B charger to charge super B batteries. Do not use a lead-acid charger, as these chargers are optimized for a different battery technology and make use of methods for charging and safeguarding which are unsuitable for super B batteries.
Over 5 years.
Connecting the battery
The super B 5200 battery is designed with M6 screw terminals, this makes it easy to replace the stock lead-acid battery. The super B 5200 battery is shipped with two M6 bolds and plastic end caps to fit to the wires on the bike
Self-discharge As super B batteries have a very low self-discharge rate, the batteries will last for several years in storage.
F.I.M. / Stock Racing
The F.I.M. modified the regulations for stock racing regarding battery use.
Article 22.214.171.124 Battery:
The Battery may be replaced. If replaced, its nominal capacity must be equal to or higher than the Homologated type. The F.I.M. has approved the super B battery for use as replacement battery.
