The Braille is sounding really good too. I used Yuasa on my other bikes but they don't seem to make one that is quite right for this one.

I wholeheartedly recommend the Braille.
I run the Duracell because I had a battery failure and needed to on the road again ASAP.

Could the rough handling thru shipping be a problem for batteries? I would think bouncing them all around on their sides and top can't be good for them.

I wouldn't go lithium until they are further proven some guys had them get holes and that's not good
More media hype than reality.

"With more than a billion mobile phones and computers used in the world every day, the number of accidents is small. By comparison, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration say that your chance of being struck by lightning in the course of a lifetime is about 1 in 13,000. Lithium-ion batteries have a failure rate that is less than one in a million. The failure rate of a quality Li-ion cell is better than 1 in 10 million."

The good news is lead acid batteries never fail - unless the negative terminal melts down and they catch fire, or explode or thermal runaway or ...

Lithium ion batteries with proper manufacturing processes and built in safeguards have great stats. Earth X is top of the line. My next battery will be an Earth X.

I had a Braille go dead a few months after the 2 year warranty was up. That was over $200 for the Braille too. I bought a Deka ( Harley brand) for $85 shipped and turns over perfect. Even if it only last a year I'll be saving money compared to the Braille. The Harley battery that was in my bike when I bought it lasted 6 years before it took a shit. So can' beat $85 in my opinion

5 batteries at $85 = $425 and they last 6 years each, so how many years will little Johnny get from his 5 batteries instead of buying a $449 battery?

A- 5yrs
B- 10yrs
C- 20yrs
D- 30yrs :)
I've never had a battery last 6 years haha. 2-3 at the most.
