I have this one:




Amazon's website says 18aH in the description but the Shorai website says 36aH for the same product number.

Has anyone used an Antigravity battery in their Lotus? I can get those in a couple of days, but the Shorai is going to be 4-6 weeks from the dealers I've contacted.

my exige only gets driven once in awhile (store in a separate storage place away from my condo). anyways, I have tried many of the above options. For me, it was either coming back to a dead battery or use the cut off switch every time when I dont drive for 5+ days.

since, I have switched to a bigger costco battery (i know sacrilegious) and so far my car never died once even if I dont drive it for more than 3+week. (I dont track my car and more weight wasnt a huge issue for me vs dead battery and not able to drive my car adhoc)

It's truly an amazing battery - I have NEVER had to use the charger. Started right up after sitting for 26 days with the alarm LED just flashing away

I have a Shorai LFX36L3-BS12 on the way. I had read that they struggle when cold and some people add a super capacitor. Or crank a few times until it warms up.

Is it really a problem or is it only in super cold weather and in that case I could just leave the lights on for a bit?
