Li Ion batteries

Oh, that's disappointing. I was hoping to go for a li ion battery because the yuasa's don't like sitting around for long periods of time - which mine does...

I think there are typically 2 issues that can lead to incompatibility issues:
1) the charging voltage.
2) how much the RR relies on the capacitative effect of the battery to give a smooth voltage. As li ion batteries reach full charge, the current they will accept nears zero - so its capacitative effect nears zero.

Very long, informative thread here :
