Great Post,

If any of you who are running the Shorai batteries actually deplete the charge in one and have to charge it, please let us know how it responds to your charger. Same for just a preventative trickle charge. AGMs, Gels and LI batteries all respond differently to a charging cycle and have differing "Ideal" charging rates. The problem is that our motorcycle's internal charging circuit as well as the conventional trickle chargers most of us have are optimized for lead acid charging rates. This is why some earlier versions of so called "Super Batteries" end up with much shorter than expected life spans. I'm not saying that is the case here, I'm actually interested enough to want to know the outcome. I'm just saying it may be the only potential down side.
