I mean if the LiFe is the one being jump started. The low internal resistance should mean the Pb delivers current well in excess of the LiFe's charge rating.

I don't doubt the amazing tech in these small batteries. 7.6Ah is quite enough to start a small car. I just feel safer with a bit more reserve. I also felt that the 30A charge rating of a single pack might be too close for comfort. 60A should be fine with the stock 75A alt.
