Anyone get their RBS battery yet? I've been trying to get hold of Ali for two weeks and nothing so far ... no tracking number, details etc.

Cheers,

What a stunning piece of engineering excellence. A work of art - love the manual
Felt a little heavier than I expected but the scales don't lie. 4kg. Versus the 13kg I took out of it. Mounted in and cranked her up. Perfect.

Thanks so much guys!

Exclamation

I ordered CBS with 5yrs warranty, received RBS with LVC switch. May i know why?

Send two Pm waiting for reply.

I said RBS because my battery number is S/N : RBS-30xxx-A

Battery looks awesome though

You have the correct battery: we issued yours with an RBS serial number due to the shortage of CBS serial number tags at the time it was built. It is special

Give me a call, I have some ideas. You may have a stuck relay in your car to draw the battery down that quickly. 414 - eight zero 1 - three 2 8 6

Stuck relay? Wouldn't the low voltage cut off switch work?

Most people are able to let their Lotus sit for weeks and still start the car, so you have something drawing a lot of amperage.

If the LVC were activated, you would get nothing out of the car (no lights, no clicking, etc.). If you are getting lights but not enough battery power to start the car, it sounds like the voltage didn't quite get low enough for the LVC to disconnect the battery. Simply put it on a charger for a while and you will be fine, but you need to find out what the current draw is from your car.

If, on the other hand, the LVC activated, you should put a charger on the battery and then press the reset button. The battery will not charge when the LVC has disconnected the battery, and if the voltage is too low it will try to "awaken" the battery then see the voltage is too low and instantly "sleep" the battery. That's why you should put a charger on the battery, then press reset and let it charge a while.

The job of the LVC is to disconnect the battery before it gets to low to harm itself.

My stock battery did let the car sit for 3 weeks without any issue.

No lights or clicking sound at all

For all I understanding from the web & forum, this battery need nothing, but just to press the LVC if thing happened.

This is a brand new battery.. 12days after installation....

I disconnected CBS(with RBS series number), hook up to another battery, car start in one crank

Called local agent workshop manager, he said "no stuck relay"

This battery require me to purchase charger & store in the car ? I hope is not .

Thank you thomas
