I know batteries are one of the most expensive parts of a solar system there is a less expensive pretty much free source of batteries for your solar system. contact me and i can share.
Go on then, I'm intrigued - where are these pretty much free batteries from?

Haha he deleted his account bless.
Almost sure thing those were half inched.
 
Although... having said that... I do know that sometimes batteries must be replaced every x months for safety reasons... and are often perfectly serviceable... like a mini-submarine for example ??

Perhaps so. :)

I think the fact he searched for threads to reply to, then deleted his account once people questioned them, rather than saying he had serviced them (like a mini submarine); we were probably right. :D
