Smile Lithium Ion batteries

Has anyone replaced their lead acid battery with a lithium ion replacement?

If so, what differences have you noticed.

thanks,

Derek

Default $$$$

I do know they cost much more. No I do not have one. Hopefully the price goes down by time a need a new battery. I do know they are much lighter in weight and can be smaller in size depending on who you buy it from. They DO take a special charger if they need to be charged from what I have read on them. Nothing wrong with loosing a little weight weather it be for ourselves or our bikes. Let us know if you get one and what you think of it. I am curious also.

My friend has a Shorai battery and is happy with it. He has a 116 ci sportster so it is turning over a big motor. According to Shorai, you can use a battery tender on them. This is what I will get when I need one. About 1/3 the weight.

http://www.shoraipower.com/c.3379047...ery-finder.ssp awful expensive compared to lead this also on using a non lithium charger.

Q. Can I use Lead-Acid battery chargers or charger/tenders?
A.Yes. HOWEVER, you may NOT use a charger/tender if it has an automatic "desulfation mode", which cannot be turned off. We have confirmed with Deltran, makers of the "Battery Tender" brand, that their products do NOT have a desulfation mode, and are therefore OK for use with Shorai LFX, for example. But the best possible charger/tender for Shorai LFX is the SHO-BMS01, which will be released on about March 15th 2011, we expect. It uses the 5-pin BMS port in the LFX batteries, in order to monitor, diagnose, and balance the individual cells during charge. And it also has an optimized storage mode that will give the longest possible service life to your LFX.

If you are storing your vehicle and want to check the remaining capacity, or you're a racer with a constant-loss system, you'll want to know how resting voltage (i.e. with no load or load under 200mA) maps to remaining capacity. LFX batteries should be maintained such that 20% capacity remains at minimum, as best practice. Use a good-quality voltmeter to check remaining capacity, and consider recharge whenever the battery capacity falls to about 50% remaining. Of course, if you get the Shorai dedicated BMS01 charger, you can just hit the "Store Mode" button and leave it to do the work for you.
