    Lightweight Batteries. who's running them?

    Just bought the Braille 21# battery.
    Just curious if people are having problems with it?
    I know a few people have tried different ones, 15# and 17# and found that it wasnt up to task.
    So im curious if there are any long term users of the 21#

    I've run the 15# in an N54 for months at a time. It's OK. But will run dead if you're not careful. The 21# may be more forgiving. If you want a good budget lighter battery use the MINI Cooper battery. It's around 28#, uses the OEM hold downs, and is around $150 at most dealers.

    As long as you run it in the summer you should have no issues. Ive seen people run #15.

    I bought the OEM Mini battery which is much lighter than the M3 battery, never used it though. Too bad you bought the braille, I would have sold you mine for a good price.

    You sure? I spoke with Drew before purchasing as I was concerned and he said it has been flawless.

    I never read that but you may be right. Either way I called him and asked him about it the day I bought it which it after he had it for a few months.

    I don't know, last I heard he was happy with it but you may be right.
