Elect vs. Mech lift pump

Discuss equipment for your boat here.
Has anyone changed their lift pump to an electrical pump. I'm in the process of changing mine and I saw somewhere a guy installed an electrical one on a FL120 instead of the original mechanical. Has any of you guys tried this? No doubt the original pump is more dependable but maybe an electrical for backup situation. Ideas?
I replaced my mechanical pump on my Perkins 20 years ago and have not had a problem since. Installed a new electric at 15 years and kept the old one as a backup in the parts bin.
