Anyone tried this

Claims to shave 50lbs from the battery setup. Seems like a lot of weight savings.
The weight savings are from the battery only. Braille batteries weight like 10-15 pounds. I had one on my GTI once, sucked big time. Battery would discharge every day.

Nice for a track built vehicle, but not good for a DD. IMHO there's a reason our battery is big.
