Batteries are here!


Today I moved in and hooked up 4 brand new MK Battery 8A8D batteries.  At 250ah each, this gives me a respectable amount of battery, and should make the system very happy.  Also, at 160 pounds each, 650 pounds total, there is even less chance of my house blowing away in a storm.
