    Lithium-ion batteries

    What is the popular brand/PN for the more popular lithium-ion car batteries out there being used in Pro Touring? Are many people running a 16v setup? What sort of 16v specific battery tender are you using?

    This seems to be a growing niche the past several years and I've read of many advantages to having the 16v battery.

    So I have it narrowed down to these 3 batteries, the first one is 16v and the other 2 are 12v:

    I'm leaning towards the XS Power 12v, the specs are just amazing. XS Power has a 16v, but the specs are far less impressive compared to their 12v: https://shop.sparkedinnovations.com/...-4ah-group-34/

    Thoughts?

    EDIT: Here is another 12v option: https://antigravitybatteries.com/pro...tive/ag-35-rs/

    I think all in all, I will go with the XS Power 12v. Then I have zero risk to any components which may be too sensitive for the 16v battery.

    I thought my AGM was expensive! I don't see a weight on the Li- Io batt?

    Between 8-16 lbs for most. I'm buying them more for the voltage consistancy than the weight savings since it's in my trunk anyway.
