I think it's about time for a new battery in my dr350 with estart. I've read thru this tread and I think the 4 cell 2.3 will work for me but I have a couple questions.

I don't often ride under 35 degrees but I Do see temps in the 40s regularly. Should I think about a larger battery to deal with this?

On longer multiday backcountry trips I will plug my phone in to charge every few days overnight.(I know I could do it while riding,but I don't like not having my phone on my body while riding) Being that these batteries are starting batteries will this small load cause any issues?

I'm trying to loose weight as well as free up some space in the battery box for a spare rear tube. So the flat 4 cell is appealing but is there any reason to go with the plastic cases square one instead?
