I picked a lightly used Shorai battery from craigslist with charger, three rides, saved at least ten pounds, starts every time. I haven't had it in real cold sub freezing conditions yet, maybe next year. Charger has storage mode and charge mode, can't see a bad side to it.

I always thought the same thing, but now that I have estart I wouldn't own a sled without it. Never once have I thought as I push the start button, man I wish I could yank on a rope a couple times instead.

I use the "pull the rope" as a gauge to determine when I need to turn in my riding gear. When I am too old to pull the rope I figure I am too old to ride. Think it is some sort of an old duffer thingy?

Mold, you have in your sig, "don't mess around with the old folks, they didn't get that way by being stupid" I abused my body in other sports (ok, stupid) way before I started riding snowmobiles, (started riding@ 37). Ya I could "pull the rope" but why? Estart is just "one" thing that will "help" give me the ability to ride a few more years.

Of course once you graduate to a 4 stroke, the lithium battery is even better.
