I use a manual battery charger with NO DESULFATION mode! I've had my LiFEPO4 battery for two years now, no problems charging it with my old school manual type battery charger at 2 amps.

I haven't had any problems. Where I live in Alaska though, cold for us is rarely single digits, and we only get minus temps once every couple of years. We're fairly temperate weather wise.

Yeah, but this one uses a hex key. I ride in rain probably 80% of the time so my drain plug tends to freeze up a bit, making it a bit awkward to remove!
