I have never been where I could not jump off another vehicle.

Beleive me you use them....kid and I always fight about the Anti-gravity and it's in daily use keeping phones charged, Comm sets charged etc.
Bright flashlight is always at hand.

My KLR has a Lithium main battery and it's very small and light and no problems plus the long battery warranty was good.
My Vstrom also has lithium.

The Anti-gravity was simply the best thing to take on a trip as it covers so many bases - On the CBF I just tuck it in the tank bank and it powers my nav...no need to wire the bike.
It would easily fit in the glove box of the Burgman 650 and power USB Nav all day.
Having a safe easy jumpstart option is really useful plus everything else is does.
Highly recommended and it's a big category. They are plane safe but must be in carry on luggage.

Stick with a name brand with strong reviews. Most Amazons sales are by authorized outlets that supply it via Amazon for market reach.

This is the one we use but with a multi-head charging for Apple products and the jump start head as well

I carry a Micro start Antigravity battery in my 650, and two of my three cars (the other already had a clunkier portable battery). I also carry jumper cables in my cars, but unfortunately, more than once, I have been in places where there was not someone to give me a jump (a parking lot very late one blizzard encumbered evening comes immediately to mind), not to mention how much quicker you can get back on the road if you don't have to look for someone to help. Very pleased with them so far, just for the peace of mind. Haven't had to use them to jump a car/scooter yet, nor have I had to use the flashlight, but I have used them to recharge portables, etc.

Nah, no need.
I have a pile of Cree Q5 torches spread around the place and in all vehicles - Blinding light from a single AA and they only cost $2 delivered


Every PowerPoint close at hand has a generic 2amp charger and cord in it as does the bike, $4-00 at supercheap auto.
All cords compatible with all devices, unlike apple

$50 Qlux phone has a 2200Mah battery, it lasts for several days.
My $150 waterproof tablet has a whopping 6400Mah battery.

A shame apple cant put a decent battery in their devices from day one and instead have to put some stupid battery bump on the back of it's "smart" phone case to compensate for its lack of performance

Oct 2015 purchased 2007 Phantom Grey Metallic AN650 - 7000 miles
Feb 2016 and have done more miles in 5 months than the previous owner did in 8 years.
Mar 2016 3 MC tires in 17500 miles then went Darkside - Federal Formosa FD1 165/60r 14 - now 8000 miles in and finding it far superior to the MC tyre's.

Bought one (Lithium) at Walmart for about $40- use it three times, twice for a bike, once for a car. Works great.

Great to hear. Sure is more convenient than hauling a set of jumper cables and hoping someone is, number one available, able, has the time and is willing to allow you to jump start your bike off their car.

A month ago, bought a new XP-1 Antigravity Jump Starter off Ebay. The first wouldn't charge right, but the second one did. It looks like a quality outfit, but time will tell. I'm carrying it in my cage this Winter, but the charger will be assigned to the Burgman 650 in the Spring. I paid about $100, free shipping.

Here it is: http://www.ebay.com/itm/131660484725...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

2014 Burgman UH200 (Baby Burgman) 1000 miles
2010 Honda Gold Wing/ABS
1977 BMW R100/7 (bought new)
Whizzer Motorbike


Previous scooters: 52 Cushman, 58 Allstate Crusaire, Honda Elite 80

QLux screen resolution 4.5 "
480x854 pixels
400k pixels

versus 1 million and 2 million pixels,
Quote:
the iPhone 6 display is 4.7 inches in size with a 16:9 resolution of 1334x750 (326 ppi, minus one row of pixels),
while the iPhone 6 Plus includes a 5.5-inch 1920x1080 (1080p) ...


Ya get what ya pay for - I mean the Qlux has really nice specs...circa say 2010

Why my lowly iPhone 4s snagged for $50 still has 50% more pixels than your "current" phone and runs perfectly 6 years on from its release.

All Apple tablets and phones run the same lighting connection since 2012 - as they did the wider connection on pre-2012.

I have another on order for myself.
I've always had a nagging doubt about batteries, when one most needs them they play up and are found flat, always a worry with the car I carry a large (heavy) jump start/tyre pump unit for emergencies and have used it many times.

Such a unit won't fit anywhere on the Burgman - where a flat battery, although not had one yet, worries me to death. The XP1 referred to in this thread looks to be the Cat's Whiskers for the Burgman - and everything else for that matter so after seeing the videos here I've ordered one.... after finding a distributor here in UK offering next day delivery: http://www.antigravitybatteries-uk.c...tart-xp-1.html


These forums offer so much information.... without advantages of the Internet we would all still be living in the dark age where 'word-of-mouth' was the only means of learning. ��

Per the guy from AG I traded some emails with, they should hold a charge for about 6 months, and don't like to be left flat.
If they are they often won't hold a charge well afterwards. They have their faults but I'm just 'bout to drop a dime on the XP5, or maybe the Genius.
