I have a 2010 non-ESA - I am using an Antigravity LiPo (Lithium Polymer) AG16YTX12 battery, much bigger than stock and WAY lighter. It turns the motor over very well, no problems. I have not had any problems starting in the cold either, but then I very rarely see below 32F (0C).

Very happy with the battery - it does not need a tender. Spec says parasitic drain is <0.2 volts per year.
