The battery that Stanton bought (link in original post) is a high quality battery with energy storage equal to or better than the original lead acid. The little motorcycle style batteries being discussed lately are no where near the same capacity as the original lead acid. They will probably work fine if the car is driven every day, but could be an issue if the car is parked for extended time. FWIW, the battery store where I buy my batteries no longer sells the motorcycle style lithium batteries because they had too many problems with them. I was planning to buy one for a motorcycle that has an alarm system which discharges the battery when parked. After prematurely replacing a couple of batteries due to failure from sitting discharged, I intended to buy a lithium until I learned that they no longer sell them. Also, the manufacturers of the small lithium batteries like to express capacity in terms of watt hours instead of the more familiar ampere hour rating for 12-volt batteries because it makes them sound more powerfull. 96 watt hours sounds a lot more powerful than 8 ampere hours when comparing them to conventional or AGM batteries that have capacities of 12 to 20 ampere hours.
