      Per the Firefly web site 


      80% DOD 1000 cycles

      What you don't know is at what amp load?

      The highest amp load they show 20.2 amps x 5 hours which
      is not real world loads for a EV.

      Firefly pack would weigh 975 pounds I believe 
      about 75 more then a gel pack

      CALB CA 60AH pack weighs 740 pounds less.

      Not sure what the costs of the Firefly is but I doubt it's less
      then a gel pack. The gel cells are they around 240 each?

      For about 30% more then gel you can buy a CALB 60AH pack

      The CALB pack would have far more cycle life and greatly
      Improved all around performance. 

      I am not able to post costs on the CALB cells because it's less
      then anyone else including buying directly from CALB. 

      Once you put in a LiFePo4 pack you will never go back to lead. 
      Just ask any of the LiFePo4 drivers on this list.

      My understanding is 3x the lifetime of the typical lead acid battery.
