Is there a 16-volt battery?
When it comes down to these batteries, there are two main types. The most common 16-volt batteries are lead-acid based, which often have AGM technology, making them maintenance-free and spill and leakproof. There are also 16-volt lithium batteries available, which weigh less than their lead acid counterparts.
What is a 16-volt battery used for?
Many drag racers and circle track racers have opted to run 16-volt batteries to give their ignition system and other components a boost. The extra voltage from these batteries creates a hotter spark, allowing you to run a larger spark plug gap and even jet up your carburetor.
What battery does Nascar use?
Lithium batteries have been used for several years in NASCAR. While there are other lithium batteries on the market, the pricing has been too high for the average racer. The GO Lithium battery has undergone 3 years of research, development, and testing.
Can you charge a 16-volt battery with a 12-volt charger?
Your 12v adapter would only be able to raise the battery voltage to 12v, but to charge a car battery fully you would need to raise the voltage to 13.8v. The 16v adapter would raise the voltage too high and could cause damage.
Can I use a 14 volt battery in my car?
So yes, a battery at 13-14V should theoretically be able to run a car. Above all though, make sure the battery is designed for automotive use to begin with. There are in fact dry cell automotive batteries (Optima springs to mind), but they should not be obfuscated with your standard AA battery.
Who owns Interstate battery?
Interstate Battery System of America, Inc., a.k.a. Interstate Batteries, is a US privately owned battery marketing and distribution company. It markets automotive batteries manufactured by Brookfield Business Partners, Exide Technologies, and others through independent distributors.
What batteries do race cars use?
Super B lithium batteries are made for high-performance and race cars.
What is the maximum voltage to charge a 12V battery?
Those batteries that are used in deep discharge cycling mode can be charged up to 2.45 volts/cell (14.7V for a 12V battery) to get the highest charge rate, as long as the voltage is dropped to the float voltage when the charge is complete.
Can I charge a 12V battery with a 14V charger?
Yes, it’s not optimum and probably doesn’t want to be done at very high current but yes 14VDC will charge a 12V lead acid battery reasonably well.
Which is better EFB or AGM battery?
The new study showed an EFB battery is able to handle a temperature increase at 50°C and absorb 52 percent more energy than a comparable AGM battery. When translated into an operations environment, the implication is that an EFB will last 52 percent longer than an AGM battery in high-temperature environments.
Is an AGM battery worth the extra money?
Definitely worth the price. The biggest perk is they hold their charge. You can charge it in the fall, come spring it’s still 100% charged. I know mine has lasted quite a bit longer than my old lead batteries…that said, I never spent the money on lead then I now do on AGMS.
How much does a racing battery cost?

Why Turbo Start 16 Volt batteries?
Many racers in professional racing have made the switch to 16 volt batteries. The Turbo Start AGM is a sealed battery so it will not leak, even if punctured. Additional Turbo Start 16 volt benefits include a faster spinning starter and higher volume from electric water and fuel pumps.
