So, For my Creeper project I'm looking into getting a 5ah 12v battery charger combo from ebay. Weight looks like a problem though. Any other recommendations?

Every Lipo ive had has been damaged by me and i'd prefer something that could be more forgiving. Ni-cd and Ni-Mh batteries seem to work for me.
Found this battery and charger combo:
Would this work?
You can get Lithium based batteries which have automatic protection circuits built in or you can buy circuits to protect/warn or even use the EZ-B itself to monitor and warn of low voltage. To be honest, laziness and poor care and attention to the battery, in my opinion is no excuse not to use it (no offence).
There's nothing wrong with telling it like it is. Sometimes we all (including me) need to hear the truth spoken frankly. I accept and appreciate constructive criticism when given with my own best interests at heart. It would be a better world if more people could speak and hear the truth and not get offended.
oops! I did not see that weight was a problem.
