My Shorai is 5 years old.it pains me to pay out the nose for something that seems like it needs to be replaced every few years anyway. Unless this is for a race application, you could also consider an ETX20L, its less than $100.. but its "lightweight" is only due to smaller form factor. That antigravity battery's weight is impressive!
Don't buy a Braille unless you like throwing money away. They're just re-badged East Penn batteries. You can find the same battery for much cheaper using many brand names, but usually using ETX20 model format, where the 20 can be different numbers that denote a different size/capacity. Deka and Big Crank are brands you can find easily that are usually half the price of the Braille and use the identical insides. Sometimes Braille offers a carbon case, but unless you're really just shopping for a pretty case, save your money.Looking for a super lightweight battery for 2007 exige. Willing to pay for lithium-ion, looking at braille G20 and G30, wondering if any members are using these and if they work well in the Lotus? Thx for any input
It's heavy compared to the other batteries being discussed here and having had one (it was in my Exige S when I bought it) I'd never own one again. It's a lightweight car, so "feed" it accordingly.I have used Odyssey p680 for years. They seem to last about 3 years based upon my purchasing history. The car lives on the battery tender if parked more than 3 days. Why spend more?
A better solution on weight would be for me to drop the extra 35+ lbs I have been carrying for 2 decades. I did lose 10 lbs. in the last year but still have a long way to go.It's heavy compared to the other batteries being discussed here and having had one (it was in my Exige S when I bought it) I'd never own one again.
