EarthX batteries are light and seem to work well unless you leave the master on and drain it below the never return voltage. I did and it wouldn't ever accept a charge after that.

Never, ever, ever, EVER, turn off that beacon light switch. First lesson any student needs to understand.
My airplane (old 172) has the beacon hard wired to the master switch. With the master on, you can't close the hangar door without the whole ceiling flashing red at you. But my airplane also has the old generator, so I am informed you also have to turn the generator field switch off or you'll have a dead battery in a couple of days too!

My airplane ('77 Commander 112TC) very clearly specifies in the POH to turn off the beacon for engine start. Never got a straight answer on why, and I suspect it was based on the voltage droop doing bad things to the originally-equipped, long-replaced beacon, but easy enough to put in the checklist and do what the book says.

Sure, same as reading the book and looking at fuel selector and any kind of switch position. Yet, the #1 cause of crash are fuel being off at takeoff.
