Lightweight battery options?

I was considering relocating my battery to the trunk on my 6-6 coupe, then the idea of a lightweight battery came to mind instead. I found this, but Im not sure on fitment, or if its powerful enough.

Amazon.com: Battery Tender BTL35A480C Lithium Iron Phosphate Battery: Automotive

The car can start off of a LiPo battery used for RC cars, ran it for about a month. Ran a smaller one of these for a month, until my trunk got to a ridiculous temperature (likely near 200*) and it blew out the bottom. Given I had already shorted the thing out so many times it was leaking, but still. theres a risk with them, but theyre the strongest batteries per weight out there. If cost isn't a huge thing, get 2 of the 1 size smaller ones and line them up. Should be around 30Ah and 700CCA

If you get a Braille, you may want to invest in a battery tender/trickle charger. That is to keep it charged at 100%.
Do some research to get more details.

7 lb Optima Battery for Toyota Prius. Required spacers on the terminal, I just cut old terminals and wrapped them around the ones on the battery.
