Modern gel or Li-Ion batteries offer a significant advantage - they are leak-proof. Those who ever experienced spilled acid in their horseshoe oil tanks will highly appreciate this fact. On the other hand, owners of classic bikes do like the looks of their original energy store and the corresponding cover and mounts. With a Bates BattBoy Battery Box you can have the best of both worlds, because what looks like a period type HM5 6V accumulator on the outside can house a safe, modern battery within. Just hook it with two eyelet wires to the terminals on the bottom of the lid and you are all set. Perfect for 6 to 12 volts electrical system conversions, too. When using suitable Antigravity versions you even have some storage room left for a few small spare parts, safety vest, Cuban cigars, etc. Ain´t this one heck of a cool solution for an old problem?

Yeah, there is stuff out there that almost looks like the real thing and costs way less. Not here at W&W CYCLES, though. If you feel like supporting product pirates rather than the originators and makers of high quality parts for your bike, fine with us. We're gonna stick with the real thing.

Bates Kill Bill Battery Switches
After installation you have two options:
- use your Kill Bill Switch like an ignition switch. Half a turn out and the current is interrupted.
- use your Kill Bill Switch as protection from manipulation and theft. When you leave your bike remove the thumb screw and thus disconnect the battery from the electrical system.

Bahco Lead/Lithium Battery Charger and Maintainer
The device cannot be damaged by reversed polarity. It will automatically check the battery state and type and chose the appropriate charging program:
- Bulk mode
- Float mode
A practical hook on its back side allows for hanging it out of the way in convenient areas. Besides the common crocodile clips, the charger/maintainer comes with a 7.5 A fused harness with 6 mm ring connectors, that has a protected SAE plug.
A scrolling digital display provides step by step instructions to properly follow the charging of the battery such as “FULLY CHARGED AUTO MAINTAINING”, “CONNECT CLAMPS”, and “ANALYZING BATTERY”.
The charger/maitainer works with any lead-based or Lithium-Ion (LiFePo4), e.g. Antigravity, vehicle battery that has 12 V 6 Ah - 58 Ah. Max output current is 3 A. The device is sealed waterproof (IP 68).
