Lightweight battery?

Lightweight battery options? Anyone running a aftermarket battery that saves weight? What's your setup? Looking to shave weight

I run a Braille 21 pound battery. I dont have the specs on hand, but I'll see where the picture I have compared to the OEM Ac Delco battery. I will say I needed to buy a battery tender to keep it from losing its charge. It is not my DD fwiw.
