Save around 4 - 5Kg for similar money & go to Li Ion

A cheaper alternative to lithium is AGM

Leoch LPX600 Xtreme AGM Battery
High cranking amps, Can be deep cycled, Ideal racing battery
Equivalent to Odessey PC680.

Long storage life (1 year before needing a recharge)

Quick charging capabilities (4-6 hours to reach 100%)

3 YEAR GUARANTEE

Considerably lighter than lead acid

Ebay item 152632389652

63





If it ain't broken, fix it anyway (just because).

Volvo C30 T5 Polestar

This is certainly how I'm going when I'm ready. They can also be packaged at weird angles if I remember correctly?

I've used a Yuasa 17Ah battery successfully for a few years - it's a golf cart battery I think. It turns a 2 litre zetec lump over quite happily and I've had no issues at all. It's small, light and cheap. I paid less than 30 about 3 years ago, looks like they've gone up by a tenner since then.

Yes, can fit them any way you like, upside down if you wanted to! That Extreme AGM battery looks like a good buy if you're not bothered about the weight, fitting a Li Ion battery is about the most cost effective weight saver I know of!

I'm also interested in size - smaller volume sometimes means packaging can be better if it can be moved down and centerwards. One of the most awkward things I did on my fury last time was move the battery from up-high on the bulk-head shelf (good location for maintenance) down to the floor, in the engine bay, right next to the starter-motor. It was a lot of mass to move, and necessitated get a Varley red-top to do it. Worth it though.
