Mirai LiFePO4 batteries

No, not Shorai, Mirai:

mirai batteries - makers of the world's most powerful, ultra reliable, lightweight batteries

I stopped briefly at the Mirai table at the Long Beach motorcycle show, and I did lift up one of their batteries. If anything, it was lighter than a Shorai - it felt like an empty case. I even joked with the man behind the table that it was only a display piece and not a real battery - he begged to differ.

I have not been able to find much on the web in the way of discussion of these batteries. Anybody have one, or know someone who does?

Not so easy to search on Google - I tend to get stuff like the link below - fun to read but nothing to do with batteries. I did at least learn that the words Shorai and Mirai are related words in Japanese.

There's a thread on ADVRider that discusses lithium batteries here: Lithium Batteries.

As usual not everyone agrees on everything that's said, but there's plenty of food for thought. Then you make your own decision.

FWIW, Walter Colebatch used a Shorai in his BMW XChallenge on his Sibirski Extreme 2012 ride from London to eastern Siberia - 12,000 miles. Ride report starts here: Sibirski Extreme 2012.

I've had a Shorai battery for about, oh, six months now, with no problems so far. I am curious about the Mirai, though not because I want to change batteries.
