IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS for LiFe Batteries
1) SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
2) Do not throw away the box or any foam packing until after the installation is
a) Do not immerse in water.
b) Do not short terminals together.
c) Do not use or store the battery near sources of fire or heat.
d) Do not reverse the positive (+) or negative (-) terminals.
e) Do not put the battery into a fire or apply direct heat to it.
f) Do not pierce the battery casing.
g) Do not strike, throw, or subject the battery to severe physical shock.
h) Do not solder directly to the battery terminals.
i) Do not attempt to modify the battery in any way.
j) Do not place the battery in a microwave oven or pressurized container.
k) Do not use the battery if it gives off an odor or generates heat.
l) Do not allow charge voltage in excess of 14.8Volts.
m) The batteries optimal operating range is 40ºF to 140ºF. (See Usage
section, paragraph (f) for cold weather use.
n) Do NOT use lead-acid chargers which employ a high-voltage “antisulfation”
o) Keep batteries away from pets and children.
p) Fully discharge before disposal.
a) Be extra cautious to reduce risk of dropping a metal tool onto battery. It
might spark or short-circuit battery or other electrical parts that may cause
b) Remove personal metal items such as rings, bracelets, necklaces, and
watches when working with any battery. A battery can produce a short
current high enough to weld a ring or the like to metal, causing a
c) To reduce risk of battery explosion, follow these instructions and those
published by the manufacturer of any equipment you intend to use in
vicinity of this battery. Review cautionary markings on these products and
on engine.Once installed apply a good quality anti-corrosion spray to the terminals.
d) Reinstall the vehicles protective battery caps, and cover the unused
terminals with the supplied caps to ensure the battery cannot short against
any part of the vehicle.
e) AEROVOLTZ Lithium batteries are pre-charged to 70% of capacity and
must be charged before use.
a) There are a couple of damaging conditions for any Lithium starter battery;
they include prolonged storage in high temperatures and allowing the
battery to be deeply discharged.
b) Compared to lead-acid batteries, the Aerovoltz ® Lithium battery has
less than 5% of the average self-discharge rate and can be stored for
much longer periods without maintenance.
c) If there is no current draw from your vehicle when your ignition is off the
Aerovoltz® Lithium battery can be stored for one year without
d) For long term storage the ideal temperature is 1ºC (34ºF).
e) The battery should be stored in a minimum charge state of 70%.
f) A lithium battery’s cranking performance decreases as its temperature
approaches freezing. Most vehicles will start normally on the first try in
temperatures down to 40°F. If the engine fails to start on the first try in cold
weather, a load such as the marker lights can be used to warm the battery.
The length of time it takes to warm the battery depends on its temperature.
The colder the weather, the longer it will take to warm the battery
sufficiently. Five minutes is a good rule of thumb when the temperature is
below freezing. Keeping the battery fully charged will improve cold weather
a) Do not use a desulphation or pulse charger, doing so will damage the
battery and void the warranty.
b) Standard lead-acid chargers may be used, as long as they do not exceed
14.8Volts during charging.
c) Maximum charge rate is 10Amps.
d) The use of a lithium specific charger such as the units in the Aerovoltz® Lithium
Charger series is strongly recommended
e) Do not allow the lithium battery to discharge below 8Volts as this will
damage the battery and void the warranty.
f) Do not charge the battery in temperatures below -10ºC (14ºF).
Batter Management System (BMS)
All Aerovoltz Intelligent Lithium Batteries contain a BMS system. A battery management
System is an electronic management system inside the battery that manages the charging of the
Battery by protecting it from overcharging, balancing the cells during the charging process and make sure the battery operates in a safe environment.
The BMS will manage the following functions:
Over Current Protection
Over Discharge Protection
Short Circuit Protection
Temperature Protection HIGH and LOW
Self discharging in non-active mode
a) Carefully remove the existing lead-acid battery from your vehicle following
the manufacture’s guidelines.
b) Next place the original battery next to your Aerovoltz® Lithium
battery to compare the variation in size. The original battery may be the
same width but is longer in length and taller in height. To make up the
difference apply the appropriate amount of the adhesive foam to either the
Lithium battery or the battery box.
c) Ensure the battery now fits surely in the battery box and allows the battery
cables to reach the battery terminals with no issues.
Wiring Harness and Reset button installation
a) The Aerovoltz ® Lithium battery allows the cable eyelets to be either
connected from the top or front side of the terminals. Choose the side that
matches your configuration the best.
b) Contained in the box is the wiring harness to be able to charge the battery when not in use and alsohas the built-in reset button should the batteries BMS system go into fault mode due to any of the parameters is protects from.
c) IF YOU DO NOT INSTALL THE WIRING HARNESS YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RESET THE BATTERY FROM A FAULT MODE
d) Use the supplied 3mm screw to attach the SMALL ring terminal to the reset connection on top of the battery. (do not overtighten as this bolts directly to the circuit board. The LARGE ring terminals can be attached to either side, whichever fits your application the best. Again, do not overtighten bolts
e) Use the supplied hardware to attach the terminal rings to your battery. Do
not over-tighten the screws. (See diagram below)
c) Check our website https://www.aerovoltz.netfor the latest updated warranty
d) Warranty is not transferable from original purchaser.
a) Aerovoltz ® offers a Limited Three-Year Warranty for its
Lithium Batteries, for defects in material and or workmanship.
b) Do NOT return any product without an RMA# (Return Merchandise
Authorization) or before first contacting Aerovoltz ® to
perform some simple diagnostics. In many cases issues can be resolved
1) 0-12 months: Replace free of charge with original receipt.
2) 13-24 months: 50% off MSRP with original receipt.
3) 25-36 months: 35% off MSRP with original receipt.
* Customers are responsible for paying the initial shipping charge to return
the batteries. Aerovoltz will pay shipping on replacement batteries returned
to customers, except those without a copy of the receipt and/or RMA#.
Returns MUST be accompanied by:
a) A copy of the Original Receipt.
b) an Aerovoltz ® RMA#.
Returns without a receipt
a) If there is no receipt but we can determine from the serial code that the
battery is still in the warranty period, or within the first three years of
Aerovoltz selling the battery then the customer receives 35% off MSRP for
that battery type.
b) The customer is responsible for all shipping charges.
No Fault Found
a) Any product found NOT defective after testing in house at Aerovoltz Batteries will only
be returned to customers at their expense for shipping.
Conditions Not Covered
a) Any physical damage to the battery occurring after purchase.
b) Any modifications to the battery, including but not limited to the terminals.
c) Any corrosion including salt water.
d) Any over-voltage charging of the battery.
e) Battery discharged below 8Volts.
