I had been wondering about lithium batteries. The big problem is the heat. Those are the ones that have been known to catch fire.

I’ve also been watching the prices and evolution of batteries. I just changed out my 8D’s this year, but I took the lead acid route this time again. They still give me the most bang for the buck if well maintained.
