Lightweight Batteries From Performance Distributors

If you’ve been around cars for any amount of time, you’ve picked up a battery. If you emerged from the experience without a trip to the chiropractor, you probably recall hoisting that rectangular object over a fender and under the hood was a chore. Batteries are heavy, we all know that, but modern technology and designs are changing the status-quo when it comes to supplying your vehicle with vital electrical power.

Traditional lead-acid car batteries have been around for a long time, and with every other system in automotive design evolving to keep up with the times, it’s surprising we been happy to deal with the mess and weight so long! Not only can the added weight contribute to a heavier curb weight, the size can be hard to package in a cramped engine bay once all the space has been occupied by things like power adders.Performance Distributors

Performance Distributors may be best known for supplying spark to the combustion equation, but they don’t limit themselves to distributors. In the video above the Dyna-Batt is the subject of our attention. With an alternative to bulky heavy batteries will you choose to lug around your old 12-volt unit?

The Dyna-Batt is like a traditional car battery in that it provides your ignition system and general electrical system with the necessary cranking amps and power to keep the lights on. But that’s where the similarities end. The Dyna-Batt is much more compact in its dimensions and weighs and anemic 13.5 pounds in comparison to the traditional 40-80 of a traditional battery. It is a dry-cell design meaning it can be mounted at any angle, and is available in multiple post designs for convenient wiring.
