Make a log of your driving and your needs and figure that if you want a lead acid pack to last more then a year or two that you need to keep it above 50% state of charge, then go with as high of voltage as you can afford.

For Aerohead "Phil Knox" and anyone else that is interested I have created a Facebook Group called Ecomodder Aero EV for folks who want to post pictures and can no longer use Photo Bucket. You can copy the link there and post the link here at Ecomodder and since it is a open group everyone ought to be able to access it. The more people who join this Facebook page the better as then anyone can view photos directly without needing the links. New groups could be created to handle the separate niches many people here at Ecomodder get into.
