I was talking about the video of people trying to blow their hands off with lithium batteries- thought I heard Krautistani being spoken.

I know this is a long thread, but YES--this is the battery I am using in my 950. Several replies in this thread from me specifically about this exact battery.

They make a 7.5 version of this battery and it cost about $210 with shipping. I think I might try it as I've killed yet another battery.

Wonder what a lithium ion does with an air pump ?
Anyone know ?!?

I bought this one

http://ebatteriestogo.com/merchant2/...ct_Code=01-344

Seems to be the cheapest battery with a CCA above 200.

Works great!

with the LiFePO4 battery that I am running I have had zero issues with the gutted slime pump that I use.... go from aired down to street pressures in no time.

running a euro headlight switch and 35w HID so if there is any question of need for max cranking amps to the starter I turn off the headlight.

LiFePO4 Pack 40Ah (128Wh), 40 Amp (Continuous discharge rate), 100 Amp ( < 30 sec Max Surge rate) limited by 6AWG wire

E-batt / Turn tech

E-batt charges $21 to ship where Turn tech only $8 .
That makes Tuen tech only $7 bucks more and it seems to have a stronger moulded case .
