      i need something much much smaller         but do not fear i have been turned on to a site
      www.greenbatteries.com and from what i have seen i think these are the peopel to fly with
      and what is with the car batteries?
      why a solar charger instead of stopping at every grocery store i might see or go looking for a plug in the forrest
      a solar charger will be a lot easier for me
      i just might not come back on my bicycle
      i just might keep going i don`t know yet
      but thanks for all of the input
      it has helped big time..........................................

      Sure, if you can *find* a free battery that's lighter it makes sense
      to use one. To repeat the first sentence of that paragraph: "if CHEAP
      is the main criteria". Spending more is an easy way to save weight.
