Exige S at 14,008 miles

posted to 2008 lotus exige s 240 on jul 2nd, 2015 with tags exige and lotus

Replaced old lead acid battery (37 ½ pounds) with a Voltphreaks VPH750 lithium ion battery and NCI bracket (5 ¼ pounds), saving 32 ¼ pounds!

The VPH750 battery has an automatic low voltage cutoff which can turn the battery off when it gets low, so it won't die completely and can just be turned back on to start the car. It also has a power button so I can just turn it off during the winter instead of having to trickle charge it.
