I was considering a lighter battery, like the 925.

Ended up going with a pc1200mj. 38lbs. It's got some serious juice.

It sat at the airport for 60 days and cranked right up at about 25f.

Pretty common to be double digit negative temps where I live in the morning in January/February. It spins the engine well.

There are times when it's a survival situation if the car won't start, figured the extra weight was worth it for me.
