I do not understand why you guys are spending ~$150 on supercapacitors when you can get a LiFePO4 with 500 CCA for $215.

Because we get -40 degree weather here and the first time I crank with the battery and then recharge in those conditions, it’s toast.

Edit: If anything, I could have used a much smaller and cheaper LiFePO4 and just relied on the capacitors.
