Anybody tried the Ballistic batteries??

Notice that they do not require a trickle charger as with the DRZ400.

Cheers, Scott

Mine did about 3-400kms before it stopped working altogether.

Think they are very sensitive to overvoltage and maybe not suitable to dirtbikes with fairly average voltage regulation??

Still require charging if left idle long enough or if have parasitic draw. One of the reasons I liked the look of it was they use a special charger which also balances the cells.
