Good lightweight battery

I'm looking to shed some weight this winter and looking into a battery. Anyone know of a good lightweight battery that will work for the street as well?

I hope the powers at be include a yearly keyboard and mouse replacement allotment in your paycheck. ;o)

Personally I think they all do the same, what you want to look at is what offers the best connections and quick disconnects...................for example I bought one of the very first before big companies started coming out with them from a college kid trying to make a buck on this site...it was allowed because no sponsors were selling them at the time....anyway my battery is still running strong weighs less than 2lbs(8Cell) with years of starts.....the key though is security with vibration resistance from terminals falling off....that would be my main goal when choosing a new type of light weight battery.

Unfortunately no. No keyboards and mice. And I do go through them pretty regularly. It's more the medical expenses that get me though. I find that in my sleep my right index finger twitches uncontrollably and the my left hand will randomly do the ctrl-c and ctrl-v motions. It's hard to live sometimes with this. And I have PTSD really bad sometimes from these types of threads. But life goes on.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

I want a shorai, but I had to opt out for a Battery Source batt recently due to funds lol. Do the shorai batteries require a special charger? I have a charger from battery source as well that's why I ask.
