Lead acid batteries are spendy these days. If I can replace a car battery with a $30 lithium, I'm all about that. How about for motorcycle use? Since it isn't run below freezing, would it be a good candidate for an unmanaged lithium ion? In other words, is there any reason why LiFePO4 would be a better replacement than other lithium ion chemistries?
