You will need about 1/3 the lead acid capacity. All the capacity is available at cranking voltage, unlike the lead acid.

Like most things you get what you pay for. The more expensive batteries tend to be better balanced and protected and generally improve reliability. The lower cost ones do the job and have just as good cranking current, but you just need to take a bit more care of them.

Thanks for the info Nez, how has yours been (assuming you've had it for a while)? Reliable?

I'd like one the main thing putting me off is I'd have to add the weight back in as ballast anyway to meet minimum weight for my class Rolling Eyes

Currently using a Odyssey PC545.

I just got this one a week or so back, Dunc, so can't really comment.

I had a Magnetti Marelli MM-iON-10 which lasted about 3 years then started getting a little bit lazy. I didn't use a proper charger or take it indoors at Winter etc. so I suspect it could have lasted longer.

Never had any issues with them though so I'm hoping this one will last just as long, if not longer, since it comes with it's own dedicated charger.

This new one is 1.2Kg, for info.
