I asked myself several times if there is any 3rd party battery available for SRAM etap.

Any aero optimized battery could be nice

Any weight optimized battery would be awesome.
Maybe with slightly less energy.

Should we start a Kickstarter campaign?

- For more aero, optimze your position, buy an aerosuite etc.
- For less weight, take a look in the mirror and ask yourself: Is this my optimum BMI?
- For less energy, step back to mechanical shifting


There is no need for a 3rd party battery.

Maybe not, but there is a need for a redesign of the battery housing so the tabs don't keep braking off.

My thoughts exactly, lol. Just how many watts would you expect to save with an "aero battery"? Surely the question can't be serious?

As for lkessweight... drill some holes in it! :D
