Our intelligent SmartCore electronics pull power evenly from Li-ion battery cells, minimizing burnout, and maximizing the longevity of your battery. The battery also acts as a capacity gauge, offering visual and audio signals in 10% increments.
And, a tail-light and running-light function may also be activated with the push of a button.
Our long-lasting, Li-Ion SmartCore batteries are completely waterproof and feature an extremely robust protective outer shell made of ABS plastic, made to resist extreme weather, shocks and mud. And, integrated electronics prevent electric faults on rough terrain.
Due to identical external connections, SmartCore Batteries are compatible with all Lupine products across the range. Although our batteries are characterized by high capacity and energy density, you should keep in mind the power requirements of your lamp head to achieve peak performance.

This should be called GeniusCore!, October 7, 2016 By Mark Hendershot (Grand Rapids, MI)
I've been using the original batteries for many years. I finally had the need to upgrade. This was an amazing purchase. It lets the user know the capacity in an easy to see display. This brilliant battery has only been used for a few rides, but it's looking like it should have been named GeniusCore!
Original keeps on going, August 24, 2015 By Anonymous (Annville, PA)
I have one of the old stye 6.6Ah batteries with my Wilma. The thing that amazes me is that it still works great after 6+ yrs of daily commuting. My commute is 20 miles round trip, one way is always in the dark, 3-5 days per week, 10 months out of the year. The only issue I have had has been with the charger and the was resolved very quickly by Bill.
Lupine: Can''''t be beat, May 28, 2015 By David Ashley (Arlington, VA)
Recently added two of the Smartcore series batteries to my Lupine light kit. Used the 6.6Ah last weekend during the 44 hour Equinox Traverse adventure race. As always, Lupine is bomb-proof and reliable. As my teammates had to switch battery packs, put away a broken light, and buy new AA batteries at a gas station for their headlamps I used one light and one battery each for trekking and biking for both nights. What I really like about the new SmartCore is the ability to check battery capacity. Normally I grab a fresh battery out of my gear bin for each night in a multi-day race. With the Lupine I could tell that it had 80% charge remaining after the first night, and I had used my bike light all night. So I knew with full confidence no replacement was needed. By the end of the race my teammates were asking where they could buy a Lupine. I recommend them to anybody who is counting on a bright light and battery to be reliable, powerful and survivable. No recommendations for improvement.

The perfect battery, Smartcore works flawlessly. I love this size of this battery it has great capacity, it is perfect for in the Jersey pocket either as a spare, or running my Neo 2. Carrying this battery in my Jersey pocket allowed me quick access to a battery for my Betty R when it was time to make a change.
