T1600 16V 20Ah Lithium Ion Racing Battery Battery with Charge Protection is the go-to choice for Top Dragster, Top Sportsman, Pro Mod, and many other drag racing classes. It is made for engine starting and the T1600 is our best value in a 16V battery for total-loss systems with no alternator. It is also a great choice for many types of circle track racing, such as dirt/asphalt, Late Models and Modifieds. It has plenty of reserve to last for a full drag racing pass with multiple stages of nitrous, or for a full circle track race of 100 laps or more, depending on loads.
Made into a Group 34 case, this product is a drop-in replacement for popular 16V offerings from Turbo-Start®, XS Power®, and others. (10.24″ L x 6.93″ W x 7.2″ T) Weighing only 10.5 lbs, the T1600 16V 20Ah Lithium Ion Racing Battery Battery is super light weight. But don’t let the weight fool you. This battery cranks an engine like nothing else. The high power Lithium Iron Phosphate cells used in the T1600 16V 20Ah Lithium Ion Racing Battery Battery are optimized for the highest power output. That means lightning fast engine starts every time. You’ll need two of the “other guy’s” batteries to do what one of these will.
Thanks to the Lithium Iron Phosphate technology, the voltage will be higher near the end of the pass (or race), giving you a performance advantage and more consistent voltage all the way to the finish line.
The T series batteries feature a charge protection board. The third terminal on the battery is intended for the charger’s ground connection and allows for balanced and safe recharging of the battery.
Please note, the T series batteries do not include a low voltage disconnect. It is very important that the battery voltage never drop below 12.0V. Over discharge damage is excluded from warranty coverage. Further, T series batteries are not to be used with alternators and they are not to be connected in series (for higher voltage) or parallel (for higher capacity.) For low voltage protection, alternators, and multiple battery banks, use L1600A.
*Note: All 16V lithium-ion batteries require a specialty battery charger. Do not use 16V battery chargers designed for 16V lead acid batteries.
