12V Starter Battery

12V Starter Battery

A123's 12V lithium-ion starter battery sets a new performance standard for micro-hybrid vehicle applications, offering a lead-free solution to demanding start-stop and recuperation systems. By utilizing advanced chemistry and system design, our UltraPhosphate technology powers this starter battery to outperform lead-acid technologies.

A123's advanced technology delivers outstanding cold cranking power, superior cycle life and high charge acceptance, while still boasting up to a 60% weight reduction over lead-acid. These attributes enable the key fuel saving features of a micro-hybrid vehicle.

Cold Temperature Performance:

A123's breakthrough Lithium-ion chemistry now delivers a wider operating temperature range for exceptional cold crank performance that outperforms lead-acid and also contributes to system reliability.

Extensive Cycle Life:

A123's UltraPhosphate technology delivers a solution that lasts multiples of the lifespan available with lead-acid products. Long life and high durability in start-stop applications defer the need to replace the 12V starter battery, which reduces vehicle manufacturers' warranty risk and total cost of ownership for the consumer.

Dynamic Charge Acceptance:

A123's robust 12V battery can accept high rates of charge and capture several times more energy from regenerative braking for improved vehicle fuel economy and reduced emissions. This advantage is sustained over product life and does not suffer the severe performance degradation experienced with lead-acid technologies.


Smart on-board battery management system (BMS) electronics report real-time data and diagnostics to protect the battery and prevent premature failures, reducing service and warranty costs. The integrated BMS provides cell balancing and built-in system-level safety features protecting the battery from under/over voltage and over temperature conditions.

Lighter Weight:

Our 12V system weighs less than half of lead-acid equivalents, contributing to increased vehicle fuel economy and performance.
