The G30 is replacing the discontinued GU1R model. While the internals are the same (hence same performance, cranking & capacity), the new G30 case is just under 1" shorter in length, 1/4 shorter in height and virtually the same in width.
The G30 model is designed specifically for the Import Tuner market (4 & 6 cylinder) for street/track vehicles and has enough cranking power for small block V8 race cars and hot rods with light electrical demands/accessories & standard compression. (Due to low capacity, this model is recommended as a TRACK ONLY model for high electrical demand vehicles like Audi, Porsche and others with lots of electronics & have a high parasitic draw where OEM battery is 60 Ah or higher) If this model is used in such a high demand vehicle, a lithium charger MUST be used if vehicle is not driven regularly and is going to sit for more than a week to ensure battery is not discharged. In most cases, an Intensity or Intensity Carbon model would be the recommended street/track car lithium upgrade.). This unit comes the popular ETX 30 Group size (same as B3121 AGM & MicroLite ML30C) so it‘s small & light enough to mount in a variety of locations. This battery is the best "bang for the buck" in a lithium upgrade on the market for small & mid-size vehicles and incorporates the same technology as our race winning batteries used by nearly every OEM in their factory race cars and champions ranging from SCCA to Formula 1.
Braille Lithium delivers a higher, cleaner voltage which improves the performance of every electrical component and has shown to provide:
Quicker starting (a full volt higher than lead and less voltage drop during cranking
Improved engine management & data logging performance (more stable voltage)
Less horsepower draw from the alternator due to efficient charging (5 times faster than lead),
Lasts 3-5 times longer (especially under the harshest environments),
Much more reliable (less than 1% failure rate)
Significant weight savings. (up to 1/4 the weight)
Donít self-discharge, so if the battery is disconnected (no draw or via power disconnect switch), they can sit for over a year and still have over 13 volts to start the vehicle.
To get all these benefits in one simple step makes it a very cost effective upgrade!!
Due to low capacity of this lightweight battery, if the vehicle is not driven on a regular basis, a lithium charger must be used to keep the battery fully charged or a power disconnect switch used to keep the battery from being drawn down. Do not use a standard lead charger on a lithium battery.
