Been using lithium-ion on my motorcycles (street and off road) for years now. Love them. Always considered a swap for the cars, just never bit. Might have to try this, simply because I can (deep discount).

Winter performance on the bikes has been stellar, especially the standby time (time between starts).

Anyone other than the OP successful in acquiring this new X2 Power lithium battery? BatteriesPlus does not advertise it on their website and google search just about says it doesn't exist.

I couldn't find it so I went with this battery

Antigravity Batteries AG-1601 16-Cell Lithium Ion Motorcycle Battery https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DUHOEDE..._v0fsyb0D7V6TW

But I've not yet ran it in the car. Hopefully by the end of the weekend!

Did you happen to confirm this is safe for use with lithium batteries?

I bought a noco genius gb40 yesterday based on "ultrasafe lithium jumps starter" and that's in reference to the unit itself. It says it's only safe for lead-acid batteries... so now I'm looking for a portable unit that states it's safe for lithium batteries and no luck finding that just yet.

I didn't look to see if it was safe. I cannot imagine it's going to matter too much, as it is just for jumping. I got one of these to charge the battery if it every loses charge: https://www.batteriesplus.com/productdetails/slc10003
