is the NeverDie feature, and what will it do for me?

SYSTEM NOTES AND FREQUENCY OF CHARGING:
A.) The "Pushbutton NeverDie System" has a continuous
amperage draw of 1 Milliamp.
A 25 Amp Hour Lithionics Battery lithium-ion battery with
only the "Pushbutton NeverDie System" should be
able to be stored for over 2 years before charging.
Calculation: 25Ahr/.001amp = 25,000 hours.
25,000 hours/ 24hrs per day = 1,041 days.
B.) The "Wireless Remote Key Fob NeverDie System"
has a continuous amperage draw of 4 Milliamps. A
25 Amp Hour Lithionics Battery lithium-ion battery with
only the "Wireless Remote Key Fob NeverDie System"
should be able to be stored for approximately 6 months before
Calculation: 25Ahr/.004amp = 6,250 hours.
6,250 hours/ 24hrs per day = 260 days.
of our Lithionics Battery lithium-ion batteries can be ordered
with either "A" or "B" above or both
"A" and "B". Thus, as an example, a
20 Amp Hour or 25 Amp Hour Lithionics Battery lithium-ion
battery with NeverDie System option both "A" and
"B" will likely need recharging every 3-4 months
to compensate for the small amperage draw (.001 amp and/or
.004 amp) of the NeverDie System. 25Ahr/.005amp = 5,000
hours. 5,000 hours/ 24hrs per day = 208 days.
If your vehicle also has a small "Parasitic Drain",
this must also be factored in and the battery charged in
accordance with the total amperage draw.
The NeverDie System is
an option that can be ordered with ALL of our batteries
at additional cost. NeverDie is a Low Voltage Cut-off
circuitry built into the battery that will allow you to
use the majority of the electricity in your lithium-ion
NeverDie System prevents over-discharging your lithium-ion
battery and this greatly extends the life and performance
of your lithium-ion battery.
For all our 12 Volt "Automotive
Engine Starting Lithium-ion Batteries",
if you use your stereo for a long period or forget to turn
your headlights off with the engine off, then the battery
will automatically enter "sleep mode". "Sleep
mode" will be automatically activated once the battery
is drawn down 80% to 90% (10% to 20% of its capacity/ charge
remaining) in our Automotive Engine Start Lithium-ion Batteries.
You can "wake up the battery" by simply pressing
the silver button on the battery for 1 second or the "On"
button on the wireless remote and then within 10 seconds
start the engine or connect a lithium-ion approved charger.
all our 12 Volt "Automotive Engine Starting Lithium-ion
Batteries", we can custom program this cut-off
point from to 30% of its charge. A 30% cut-off point may
be beneficial for extremely cold Canadian winter climate
areas, or for vehicles and diesel machinery that are hard
all our 12 Volt Deep-Cycle Large-Scale Lithium-ion Batteries
equipped with the NeverDie System, the Low Voltage
Cut-off is just 3% to 5% of the batteries total capacity/
charge. This means you can use up to 97% of the energy in
the battery before it enters "sleep mode". This
way, you cannot drain your new lithium-ion battery completely
- allowing you enough energy for at least 2 or more engine
you order the NEVERDIE Pushbutton, a simple button
will be located on the top of your battery to manually shut
down the battery for storage or to "wake up" the
battery from sleep mode. If your battery location is hard
to reach, we suggest that you order the "Wireless
Remote Key-Fob NEVERDIE Option".
NEVERDIE NOTES: Please check with your vehicle manufacturer
about the effects of disabling the battery. In Marine Applications
for boats that are moored, you should determine how the
NeverDie function may affect safety systems - particularly
Bilge Pump Operation.
