Shorai battery is NOT the same as the one used in Boeing and neither is the operating requirement the same. Shorai battery is NOT the same as the lithium batteries used in your phone batteries either - you can argue its a bit deceptive they used the word lithium.
They are unbelievably light. Don't need special charger, just one without the desulfercation mode... Basically most cheap chargers. Yes they won't wake up from a deep discharged state but I don't think most mc batteries can either.
Starting from extreme cold ( freezing point or below)in the morning might be an issue.... Just leave your lights on for 30 seconds to "excite" the batttery and try again. I never experience this issue because my bike is stored in place warmer than 0 c
