Would be just as easy to throw a booster pack on it to get it to turn over. They come pretty small and compact these days so lugging them around isn't much of an issue.

Do you mean carry one around in case your battery goes flat?
Hepco Becker will love your idea.

I bought the G310R for it's (lack of) weight.
Carrying a battery pack ............................... no way.

When was the last time you had a flat battery ?
Since I'm riding motorcycles I never had a flat battery (> 40 years).

Maintain the battery well and you don't need a battery pack (or get yourself a roadside assistance membership)

This is about the size of a large-screen smart phone (albeit little thicker), and would fit under the seat:

Good insurance, especially at this time of year.

I have something very similar to the XP1, but at a considerable lower cost, I have used it to jump start my bigger bike on a couple of occasions, before I replaced the original battery a few weeks ago.
It tends to live in the car as it's doesn't get used a lot in the better weather so might come in useful again.
