I have source that is sending me 6 of them next week. The company I'm dealing with bought out all the inventory Turbo Start had. They are sifting through everything and trying to get set-up to start making batteries
I was contacted when the new castle deal went down. I'll try to keep you up to date on any new developments.
If anyone should need a battery or two, please contact me.

That 18 volt deal is an add-on to your existing battery from my understanding.... it's for your ignition system only. Still need the heavy one for cranking the engine. ????

Question about them batteries.. can they be reconditioned? If so who can do it? I left the fan on my car for a few hours at the track one day and it killed the battery!! It never took a charge again like it used to. Is there anything I can do with it besides tossing it???

Monty, are you talking about the AGM type batteries? If so, I don't think there is much that can be done to recondition them, or at least I haven't heard of anyway. But I might be misspoken.

Another don't with the AGM battery is not to leave it out in the cold winter weather, this will definitely hurt the battery and it won't hold a charge for more then a day.

If it’s an old acid type, you may want to drain the battery and refill with fresh acid, this I know will usually bring them back around.

The other point I would like to make about batteries in a racecar environment is. Most battery manufactures will tell you to replace a battery after about a year of use. This is due to the car launching, shaking etc. This will usually knock lead pieces off the plates and build up in the bottom of the battery, once this build up starts touching the plates (and it will). It internally shorts the battery, hence, not holding a charge.

Ok enough battery 101 LOL

A bit of information about battery chargers and the AGM battery. It is best to stick with the Turbo Start battery charger. We have tried to use the Moroso type that supports both 12 & 16 volt batteries. Even with this charger modified for AGM type batteries, we lost a brand new set of Turbo Start AGM's in about 2 months.

Just as a FYI.

Ok, now I'm done (lol)

Thanks Sparky.. it is a AGM series battery. I bought the thing new last year (about March time) and had a new Turbo Start charger shipped with it. Ever since the battery died it would not make a full pass without killing the battery. I charged it a few times to see if maybe cycling it would help but it didnt....
