It was going to be a product, but it was decided there wasn't enough demand to justify it.

That the one Brey Krause was developing and then stopped because of too many different battery sizes?

Burkhart offers a 11lbs battery. A little pricey but it seems to be one of the few options for intense battery weight reduction.

It was just replaced by the G30. There's also a slightly smaller and less capacity G20 now too. Both are around 5lbs.

the G30 has changed dimensions, my point was if the bracket for the GU1R made it to market it wouldn't bolt on to anything currently available to buy

Small thread revival

I'm looking at Lithium Battery and will likely purchase the RS-30 (might go AG ATX-30 or Braille G30) for some of the features like restart, etc. Just wanted to check into this thread to see if anyone got any feedback yet.

I have the older version (rs-20) in my F355.

All good except it tripped the low voltage switch at the drag strip. Reset after about 10 minutes and started like it had full power. (so kind of seems like it too easily trips the low voltage cutoff switch)

Can sit for about a month with no charger and still start.
