Deadweight Touge 500 Lightweight Battery

$560.00

New product introduction sale price! The first batch of inventory is on its way and orders are expected to begin shipping in early to mid June.

Reduce a bunch of weight from your car with the latest in lightweight battery technology! The Touge 500 battery uses lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) to reduce weight by a massive 45.2 lbs (20.5 kg) compared to the OEM battery. It’s a fantastic battery for cars that are driven somewhat regularly.

Aston Martin’s OEM battery is a lead-acid battery supplied by Varta. Lead acid is the oldest, cheapest, and most commonly-used battery technology in use today. It’s also the heaviest battery type and the must susceptible to damage when drained flat (meaning, it won’t recharge as well or store as much energy after it’s been completely drained).

Deadweight’s batteries are made with lithium-ion, which is the newest and lightest battery technology, and is able to recover better than lead-acid if completely drained.

An adapter is not needed for this battery – it is a direct replacement for the OEM battery.

Ordering Notes

Battery choice should be made based on how the car is used.

Weight: Lower weight (lbs / kg) is better for vehicle performance and can improve every aspect of it. All things being equal, a lighter battery has fewer cranking amps and lower reserve capacity. However, comparing lead-acid to lithium-ion is not equal – it’s an apples-to-oranges comparison – so a lighter lithium-ion battery can have as much or more cranking amps and reserve capcity.

Cranking amps: Cranking amps (CCAs) is basically how much power the battery can quickly pump out to start the engine. The CCAs of a battery need to be adequate for the car/engine type. All the batteries listed below are appropriate for Aston Martins and other large-engine cars.

Reserve capacity: Reserve capacity (amp hours / Ah) is how much power the battery can store – the higher the Ah rating, the more power it can potentially hold. The less-often you drive your car, the more reserve capacity is needed. Using a battery tender can help extend this and allow use of smaller (lower Ah) batteries even if the car isn’t driven often. Lithium-ion stores energy differently than lead-acid, so the ratings used are “lead equivalent” (PbEq) to help make it relatable to the ubiquitous lead-acid technology everyone has always known.

OEM Varta battery: 53.6 lbs (24.3 kg) / 680 CCA / 90 Ah.

Touge 500: 8.36 lbs (3.8 kg) / 650 CCA / 60 Ah (PbEq).

Touge MAX: 13.2 lbs (6.0 kg) / 950 CCA / 120 Ah (PbEq).
