The battery tender one is a 26-35ah battery or so it claims on the specs. There are at least 3 sizes smaller, but this is the largest capacity one that they have. Looking at what others were saying about at least 20ah I thought this one might work.
If anyone knows other LifeP04 options do not cost an arm and a leg please share. I think it makes a lot of sense to have a lithium battery for this purpose.
