Darrell Gwynn earned the nickname “The Wolf” on the NHRA circuit in the late 1980’s for his tenacity on the track. By age 28, he had already won 28 national events. Sadly, his budding career would be cut short by a horrific crash. In April of 1990, just a month after winning the Gatornationals in Gainesville, his Top Fuel dragster broke apart during an exhibition run in England, sending him into the wall and paralyzing him forever. Approaching his paralysis with the same metered determination that he had shown on the track, Gwynn would go on to become a Top […]
Ott Defoe is an up-and-coming professional angler, competing in the Bassmaster All-Star series, among others. Fishing professionally for only 6 years, he has shown himself to be a rising star in a short time. In 2011, he not only won the Bassmaster Rookie of the Year award, but went on to claim the Elite Series All-Star title! Needless to say, when Lithium Pros wanted a professional angler to give our batteries a true real-world test, Ott was the perfect candidate. Ott runs (4) of our M3110 batteries; one for cranking and three in series for his 36V trolling motor. Here’s […]
August 9, 2011 Recently, Lithium Pros has expanded to a new market for 12v, 24v, and 36v marine trolling motor batteries. One of our first customers to try one of these products is a local Knoxville fisherman named Jr. Bailey. He has been fishing since the mid-80s in a variety of boats with all different kinds of batteries. Currently, he is running a 2000 Bullet 20-XD with a Minn Kota Four-trex 24v trolling motor, rated at 80 lbs of thrust. Recently, he tried our new M3400-24 to see how it stacks up against the “regular” deep-cycle lead acid/AGM competition. Here […]
Team picture after the race. From l-r, Peter Oelschlaeger (Faculty Sponsor), Tony Licata (Safety), Taylor Matthew, Sean Stuart, Brandon Augustus, Murphy Johnson (Driver), Rick Hochenedel (Driver), Leslie Morgan (Driver), Van Le (Master Mechanic), Alidia Findley (Captain), Kevin Stuart (Parent/Chaperon). Earlier this year, a crowd gathered at Texas Motor Speedway for a race event–but not the kind one might expect. There was no telltale roar of internal combustion engines in the pits, only the sounds of battery chargers and teams preparing their vehicles for the upcoming race. This race is not driven by gasoline or methanol, or even the batteries themselves–instead, […]
History was made this weekend, when Cagnazzi Racing’s Erica Enders drove her Chevy Cobalt into the winner’s circle, narrowly beating four-time class champion Gregg Anderson in the O’Reilly Auto Parts Route 66 NHRA Nationals at Route 66 Raceway. This may develop into a friendly rivalry, as last year she became the first female to qualify #1 and race in the final round…but lost to Anderson on that day. The Cagnazzi cars, Ender’s included, run T1600 Lithium Powerpacks, a great choice for anyone in the Pro Stock class. This battery has plenty of reserve capacity and cranking power, yet still weighs under […]

Update 11/11/11 We caught up with the […]
Lithium Pros introduces the world’s first floating marine battery made especially for electric trolling motors. Featuring the most advanced lithium ion technology available, this battery has four distinct advantages: 1. Light weight. Because of their 3x higher specific energy and energy density numbers, Lithium Pros batteries are inherently light, so light in fact they float! They are easy on the back when you have to lug them in and out of a boat. The substantially lighter weight also allows the boat to go further into shallow water. If you are carrying the battery, you need to be using a Lithium […]

As winter sets in and the weather gets colder, we get lots of calls and questions about how our batteries perform in winter weather, and what steps need to be taken to maintain them. ALL batteries will perform poorly in cold weather, regardless of whether they are lithium or lead-acid. In fact, a lithium battery will still outperform a comparably-sized lead-acid when the temperature drops. However, since most people try to run the smallest and lightest lithium battery possible, there are some things to be aware of: For a daily-driven car… …almost no extra effort is required. On a very […]
Lithium Pros has two lines of lithium batteries. What’s the difference? Which one should I buy? Lithium Pros introduced the L series of lithium batteries in May 2010. Featuring a patented MOSFET protection system, the L series offered the racing world a fully solid state way of controlling the battery based on several factors. Because of this system, fully automatic and solid state low voltage protection was finally available as well as over current protection, short circuit protection, over temperature, and high voltage protection in a starting battery. All of these are automatically resetting when the abnormal condition is corrected. What does this […]

A lifelong drag racer, Keith Haney has spent the last few years establishing himself as a competitor in NHRA’s Top Sportsman division. Riding on the success of his businesses, Keith has finally been able to venture into the drag racing world with a properly-backed team.

This year, the car was wrecked in testing, but the team will be back and stronger than ever once the new chassis is […]
This year, the off-road veterans at Probst Motorsports have started campaigning two new midget cars in the Illini Racing Series, driven by young upstart Ryan Probst and their new driver, Patrick Wilda. Campaigning in only the pavement races this season, the team plans to move into a full schedule for 2012. The IRS series is geared to prepare drivers for national Midget racing in a relatively affordable way, using engines and tires that need rebuilt or changed much less frequently. Common engine choices are the Chevrolet EcoTec and that of the Ford Focus. Thus far, Ryan has shown great promise […]
Since coming onto the NHRA scene in 2000, Cagnazzi Racing has built a strong reputation for itself as a competitive, winning team.

The Challenger is powered by an Arrington 392 engine, fed by a Procharger F1C and mated to a Paramount Performance Products NAG1 transmission. Of course, the car is also running a lightweight Lithium Pros battery. The C680 provides solid cranking performance, even on a 900hp engine, and could very easily be […]
It is no surprise that hybrids and electric vehicles (EVs) have become so common in recent years. With gas prices seemingly always on the rise and the ever-increasing efficiency of electric motors and batteries, the hybrid has gone from something of a pipe dream to a tangible alternative. Automotive manufacturers have been perfecting the technology for over a decade, and now a person of sufficient time, knowledge, and motivation can buy the parts and assemble their own. Two of the aforementioned people are George Voll and Dan Boyd, a couple of long-time friends from Indiana with tons of mechanical experience. George manages a hardware store, and has also been […]

As of August 2011, Kyle is 2nd in points in the MLRA, 6th in SLMR, and12th in NCRA. Kyle runs our L925-16A in his Late Model. We wish him the best of luck with the rest of his season.
The team at Nitrous Express is already well-known for their great products and service in the racing world, but they also participate. Their latest is a 24-foot purpose-built dragster, powered by an upgraded 7.0L Duramax diesel engine and fed by not only two massive turbochargers, but also their dual-stage diesel nitrous system. This car made 1154 hp and 1682 ft-lbs on its first and only full nitrous pull at 26 pounds of boost. Once the setup is dialed in, they hope to run 45 pounds! Naturally, such a massive diesel engine requires a lot of power to turn over. That’s where Lithium […]

Will it work in the dirt? You bet! Several dirt track racers have been testing the Lithium Pros L1600A, L925-16A, and the new C1600 battery on dirt tracks across the South and Midwest with great results. Why run a lithium ion battery in a dirt car? Because it’s an easy way to shave 31 pounds from the car and have the same great 16V performance as a typical 16V AGM battery. This battery only weighs 11 lbs yet has enough capacity to cover a 100 lap race. It’s the same size as the 16V AGM batteries in use so no […]

Why are XS Power Lithium Powerpacks for automotive use not rated in cranking amps? The simple answer is because you cannot safely extract energy that fast from any lithium-ion battery on the market today (even if some competitors claim a crank amp rating.) Sustained high rate discharges from lithium-ion batteries will cause dangerous electrolyte venting and explosive fires. After such an uncontrolled high rate discharge permanent damage is done to the individual cells. This is a characteristic of the Lithium-ion cell’s chemistry and has been confirmed with our in-house Firing Circuits battery tester. Well, will it start my car? Yes! XS […]
