Yeah, Scoot.
There's a 12V 7.5 AH battery. I carry it in a nylon bag that straps onto the seat frame. When I ride during the day I usually just unplug the battery and leave it at home. During the summer when I do a little night riding it takes about 30 seconds to strap the bag on, plug in the battery and go.

The blue Jag, which I sold, had a battery in a metal case that rode under the seat attached to the seat tube.
