7:30am batteries arrive. Fortunately the truck driver had an electric work saver so he put the pallet directly into my garage. I moved them and got rid of the pallet. A quick test revealed about 12.7v on each of the 10 batteries. I contacted the battery manufacturer and was advised that they would work o.k., but would have about 6 months life on an electric car as they were designed for telecomms back-up supply. As they came from a recycler, they were very cheap. They are Hawker Powersafe 105AH 12v units. Hawker are are getting me a price for their traction batteries. The terminals are at one end of each unit as they are designed to be linked together. I will get some copper bar to make the connectors.
