Cars have changed dramatically in the last 50 years, but their batteries have remained the same. With new technology that makes our battery five times lighter than the typical lead acid unit and YOUR new design, we can change that.

The top three prizes takeaway GrabCAD swag and prizes totaling $900 USD. 4th, 5th and 6th prizes get a GrabCAD shirt and mug. All participants get 60% discount for Lite Plus battery (SRP $770) until June 30, 2013.

So, if you're in the market for a battery upgrade or would like to design one for others, come check out this challenge!  Make the casing look great! It should be so well-designed that you would want to put it on display, not hide it in an engine compartment.
