Most sites will offer the terminals as well for a little extra. In my case amazon gives you the "would you like to add SAE terminals for $16" so I added them. My reasoning for not going Lithium at this time was, This is just an $80 battery, I can buy 3-4 before adding up to the cost of the lithium. With the lithium being way more sensitive to discharge I would've had to buy a tender too. BUT lithium would've been ~6lbs lighter.
