Euro Car Parts now stocks LP Lithium Ion motorcycle batteries

22 April 2016

Euro Car Parts, official prime battery supplier to the RAC, has launched a new range of Lithium Ion motorcycle batteries by leading European distributor Landport (LP).


Originally developed for racing, the super-light LP Lithium Ion batteries weight between 0.4kg and 1.5kg. This represents a massive weight saving over standard lead acid motorbike batteries, which generally weigh around 4-5kg but can be as heavy as 8.7kg.


Thanks to an innovative design, featuring four terminals instead of the usual two, just eight part numbers cover virtually every post-2004 bike on UK roads. They are also suitable for a wide range of leisure applications, such as quad bikes, jet skis, golf carts and garden machinery.


Martin Gray, chief executive officer (CEO) of Euro Car Parts, said:“Given the amount bikers spend on carbon fibre parts, the ability to gain a 5.5kg weight advantage from a battery is a big plus. Further still, because the Lithium Ionunits are solid, with no risk of spills, they can be fitted in any position, even upside down. They will accept a faster charge too, so they’re a great all-round upgrade.”


Bikers can buy direct from Euro Car Parts, either via eurocarparts.com or in-store. The website features a nearest store finder and shoppers using the Click & Collect service can pick up their parts at their local branch within 15 minutes of placing an order online.


Please note: Lithium batteries require special chargers. Fortunately, Euro Car Parts stocks these too, along with a huge range of other motorcycle parts and accessories.
