The battery of the starter system of a TaG engine ("Touch and Go", such as BMB/Easykart, IAME X30, Rotax MAX, ROK...) needs some simple maintenance operations. However, these are essential to ensure that your unit is always ready for use and to minimize the risk of getting... Stuck! That's why we've selected four accessories and tools (along with practical tips on how to use them) that will help you keep your battery in perfect condition and maintain it in the best way possible.

Charge Maintainer

The charge maintainer is an essential accessory for all karts with a lead-acid battery (such as an AGM, for example). Indeed, this type of battery tends to lose charge when it is not used for several days. On top of that, there is also the memory effect, which is typical of lead-acid batteries. What does the memory effect mean? If the battery is left unused for several days with a low charge, when it is used again there is a clear decline in storage capacity, as if the battery remembers the state of charge it was in and can no longer go any further. The model we propose is the Bosch C3, one of the best on the market and at a very affordable price. The integrated microprocessor detects the battery voltage and ensures an optimum charge level, acting as a charge maintainer as well as a conventional charger. Thanks to the short-circuit and overheating protection and the automatic switch-off function, it can be kept safely connected to the battery throughout the winter.
