Forster Premium Starter
Sealed lithium iron sulfate battery (LiFePO4) | pouch cells | absolutely maintenance-free

Forster Premium StarterPermanent peak starting performance


With specially developed high-current pouch cells, particularly resistant to the high temperatures in the engine compartment. Delivers enormous weight savings and full flexibility in installation for up to 100,000 starts.
Our recommendation if you want a particularly powerful and long-lasting starter battery.

Features

  • Extremely high starting power

    The pouch cells in this lithium battery can be packed particularly tightly. This makes particularly efficient use of the space in the battery and provides a lot of capacity in a small space.
    Your advantage: Full starting power even at low charge.

  • Easy battery replacement with drop-in

    Thanks to the standard housing, lead-acid, EFB or AGM batteries can be easily replaced 1:1. The base strip and standardized automotive pole adapter connections make installation easy, and the intelligent Multi-Dynamic Battery Management System (BMS) for alternators up to 15.6 V and vehicles with start-stop function makes registration a breeze.
    Your advantage: Easy replacement.

  • Extremely long life expectancy

    The pouch cells in this lithium battery can be packed especially tightly, which makes the battery particularly insensitive.
    Your advantage: up to 100,000 starts.

Characteristics

Always choose the right battery for the application
When choosing a battery, it basically depends on what it is to be used for. The most important distinction is between starter batteries, including motorcycle batteries, and cyclic batteries such as traction or supply batteries. Starter batteries, including …
Dimensions before starting power
First of all, a battery must fit in your vehicle or machine. Check the dimensions of your old battery or the available space in the battery compartment of your vehicle. The placement of the terminals, i.e. where exactly the positive and negative terminals …
Every battery ages
With each charge/discharge process (cycle), active material is inevitably lost and the battery's performance declines. Once it has fallen to the point where it can no longer fulfil its purpose - e.g. start the vehicle, supply the consumers or drive the …
Pay attention to the state of charge
We recommend: Check the charge level every 2 - 3 months if ... ... the vehicle is often left unused. ... you drive a lot of short distances. ... many consumers are installed. ... it is cold. ... in start-stop systems the engine does not switch off as …
Also important for starter batteries: the consumers
Even before the engine is started, the starter battery has to do a lot and supply standard equipment such as the lighting system. This draws current from the battery, which is no longer available for starting. Nowadays, there are also a number of consumers …
What does damage to the battery box indicate?
Damaged battery box If the housing is leaking, cracked or chafed, this indicates destruction by external influences. Tip: Look for a robust design in your next battery. Deformed battery case If the housing is deformed by heat, this indicates a defective …
The application determines how many volts are required.
In order not to damage either the connected loads or the battery, the voltage of the battery must fit. Batteries are available with 6 or 12 volts. They consist of 3 or 6 cells of 2.12 volts each. For applications that require more voltage, such as the …
How does a melted pole occur?
A melted pole is caused by a short circuit when the battery polarity is reversed during bridging or when the poles are connected by a tool or other object. Tip: Take care when handling batteries. Learn more about short circuit and how to avoid it.
Determine excessive self-discharge
If the battery charge drops significantly, possibly overnight, this may be due to leakage current. Silent, unwanted loads can be detected with an ammeter. Oils or liquids deposited on the surface of the battery can also cause considerable self-discharge. …
Causal research for better purchasing decisions
Batteries age and fail. Sometimes it happens faster than you planned. If you know the cause of premature aging, you have a chance to make a more appropriate choice now: A battery that fits your technical requirements, intended use, and individual habits …

What is a starter battery?

A battery that is charged by the alternator and starts the vehicle. For this purpose, the starter motor requires a lot of current for a short time. In addition to the cold start capacity (CCA), which indicates how much current the battery can ideally supply, the properties of a battery influence how reliably it can provide this starting power. A battery with very good charging properties recharges more quickly, for example, which benefits vehicles in city traffic in particular. It also supplies the consumers in vehicles without an additional back-up battery or supply battery. The more electrical consumers are installed at the factory or retrofitted, the more capacity is required to supply them when the vehicle is idling or at an engine stop and still reliably restart the vehicle.
