Batteries

Postby MOUSE » Tue Mar 23, 2010 7:40 am

Load test shows reading of 7ish :42 after 5 years of neglect, i think i charged it twice so suppose that's o.k.


Anyone know if the "maintainence free" type batteries are worth using or should i bang another wet plate in?

Cheers Dig, better get my :501 to bat shop tomorrow or i won't be delivering easter Eggs this weekend. Sealed ones appear cheaper than old skool.
