as Joe Friday said... "Just the facts, ma'am"

with sooo many different vendors of Li-ion motorcycle batteries all making claims theirs is the best!
the lightest, most powerful, the most greenest... etc. etc..

who are we to believe?

due to physics and economics realities of producing a viable li-ion battery for a 12 volt internal combustion platform. hitting the sweet spot between production costs and performance gains is the li-ion motorcycle battery.

whereas production costs to mfg a li-ion battery with enough amp hour capacity to support even a small car would be very expensive. worst yet weight savings over my AGM 45lb 750CCA battery vs say a li-ion battery weight of 15lb... saving 30lbs on a vehicle that weight 5,000lb is just not that important.

vs a motorcycle 10lb can be very important
