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.

7 years and going strong!, May 25, 2019 By Braham (Plano, TX)
I have been buying Lupine products for 12 years now. Lupine and the guys at Lupine North America are the best in business. One of the most impressive qualities of Lupine are the batteries. Every single Lupine battery has last me 7+ years. My current 13Ah battery is 7 years old and going strong, and my 7Ah is still in use after 9 years!!! When your battery is that long lasting and reliable, I actually find them quite the bargain at <40$ per year while guys using other brands have to replace theirs every 1-2 years and not be confident that their lights will ready for the next adventure.
My lights have to be tough and reliable as I do night rides/hikes by myself. Lupine has a proven track record with me. I recommend Lupine to every person that ask me what is the best light available and many of my friends have bought Lupine lights. You won't be disappointed if you buy the best. Thanks Bill and crew!!!
Outstanding products, even better customer service, June 16, 2015 By A Kim (South Orange, NJ)
I recently had a freak accident that snapped off the plastic connector to the battery casing for my 13.2Ah Smartcore battery. I just had the product for less than a year. I recently called Gretna Bikes about the situation. All I can say is that they totally took care of me. I explained the situation and they said they would rush me a brand new replacement battery (not a refurbished one) and extra large straps to further secure the battery to the bike. I have a Betty R along with this battery. It's amazing. What is even more impressive is the level of customer service and responsiveness I received. And for that, I have been and will continue to be a loyal customer of Gretna Bikes. Thank you Dan and Bill for keeping me riding without a hitch! You guys are the BEST!!!
13.2Ah Samrtcore Battery , March 31, 2015 By Ryan Gardiner (Jasper, Alberta)
This battery has been my go to for running my Betty R. Impressive battery capacity. This battery with the Smartcore tech provides me with great peace of mind, at the touch of the control panel I know exactly how much capacity is remaining, when racing 24hrs solo being able to trust your light system is key.
