There seems to be some reliability debate on these though - cold weather issues ? Maybe it was for the earlier models ? Not sure, but for a 10 lb savings, Im willing to give it a try and see how it does.

You can see it in this picture a bit better...


I went with a Ballistic battery after hearing about all the problems with the Shorai. The battery on my BMW project was 14 pounds and I put a 2.5 pound battery back in.
