WPS advertises a built-in balancer, which allows the use of any charger. And, Bike Bandit had this in stock and ready to ship.

I needed a more powerful battery to start my bike in colder weather. Finally decided to just pay more and get one that they claim will be a lot better than a stock lead acid battery.

Very satisfied with the batteries. They came fully charged, and the two motorcycles started right up. I highly recommend these type of lithium ion batteries

How can I review this after only a month?
Bike = 2014 VFR800

I've been considering a Li motorcycle battery for several years, but always put it off because I perceived them as too expensive, and because they would require a different type of charger. When my old OE battery finally quit on me I compared all the Li batteries available, as well as available Lb acid replacements. I almost went with a different brand due to an additional feature, but in the end bought the WPS because it's reviews were consistently solid and non-controversial (across multiple sites). I was surprised to find that, although not cheap, the WPS Li battery was still actually about $20 CHEAPER than an OE replacement battery for my VFR800!

Another detail that helped me choose THIS Li battery over a competitor is the claim that it will work with any charger, due to it's internal circuitry. I'm still a little nervous to try it on my old Battery Tender. I now had no reason NOT to try a Li battery. Since it ships with a strong charge I haven't had to test the charger yet.

These things really are as light as they say they are. I think I weighed it at roughly 2 lbs, compared to my OE Lb Acid 8 lbs battery (1/3rd the weight), which is nice because my VFR could certainly use a diet, and I've got some accessory weight to compensate for.

Once it was all hooked up I barely tapped the start button and it rev'ed to life!

I do have a "smart" power distribution unit installed, so I know I'll have some parasitic draw on the battery, but since I regularly commute on my bike, I don't expect it to be an issue. The LONGEST it's sat since I've had it was MAYBE almost a week, due to extreme weather. It didn't occur to me to test it with a multi-meter before restarting it for the first time since the break, but it had no problem cranking my engine.

So, how can I review a battery after only a month? I really can't. Unless something catastrophic were to happen all I can do is lend my thoughts and early impressions, since ANY battery SHOULD perform flawlessly at this point. Since I have to give it stars anyways, I gave 5 "optimistically hopeful" stars. The REAL review will hopefully not come for another 3-5 years. If it comes before that, it likely won't be as happy, but thus far I'm pretty happy I chose the WPS.

Good so far.
Original battery was working fine but was five years old. At that age I start to worry about lead acid batteries. Decided to try this newer technology and it is working well so far. The light weight is impressive-you pick up this thing and wonder if there is anything inside. Fit was perfect with the spacers provided. Installation went smoothly. Only heart burn, had to remove the crash bar on the right side of my Yamaha Super Tenere for the install. That was a problem with the Alt Rider crash bars and not the battery. The bike cranks faster now than it ever did with the lead acid battery-it has about 100 more cca than old battery. So, I like it. Good so far.

Not sure
I ordered this on Aug 1st, 2017 for my 2006 ST1300. Zero problems till this week, but I left the key on and drained the battery. Tried a tender and had no luck. Volt meter said it was putting out 3.6V. Changed to a Schumacher 6 amp Lithium charger I had and seems to be coming back to life. So, I am happy, just concerned for a little while. FYI, this is my first venture into a lithium ion battery.

light and strong
I bough this battery to replace an old style acid battery for my 94 shadow 1100. It has more cranking amps and holds a charge better through the cold months.

Great Light Weight Battery
This battery is so much easier to remove, particularly on a 750 Honda Shadow. It was a struggle to remove the heavy lead-acid battery during the winter or every time it had to be recharged.

So far I love this Lithium battery, but I guess it's to soon to tell how long it will last and how reliable it is since I've only had it for a short time.
