I would get:
Shorai LFX Lithium Battery
Type: LFX19A4-BS12

I'd also get their Battery Management System for $75. Well worth it.
Cheers

Q:
What is a maintenance-free battery?
A:
QUICK ANSWER
A maintenance-free vehicle battery is one that is not designed to be opened or refilled. The liquid solution in conventional lead-acid batteries can evaporate, lowering the level in the battery and rendering it inoperable. Sealed batteries use materials to fix the electrolyte in place, removing this necessity.

So you still have to charge it.

Anti Gravity batteries, made in USA. You need the charger too.

Antigravity, Shorai, Ballistic...... Take your pic, at least 4 popular brands are manufactured in the USA.
You don't need a specific charger from Antigravity, although a decent charger is a good idea, as long as the charger does not have a auto de-sulphate mode.
I've put so much info on Li batteries up already, have a look in the General maintenance section, this is not a 3-cylinder specific topic.
Have a look in my photo albums, there's pictures and info in the maintenance album.

I've just ought the Shorai one along with the charger. I like the fact it plugs into the battery rather than having to wire it up on the terminals.
