Re: Discover EV Traction Batteries?
The way my boat is set up I cannot use wet cell batteries because of access problems. I don't need to replace my batteries now but these seem like a good deal. The 4Ds are about $500 each and if I leave South Africa within 30 days, which I will, I get the 14% vat back, which is already included in the price. I checked Defender's price for Lifelines and it was over $600 not including tax. There is a problem with the terminal type though.
After the refit we have decided to sell Ainia. We want something smaller that would be could for the light summer winds of Lake Ontario, although we plan to spend at least a couple of winters in the Caribbean before heading north.
