    Awesome............more sellers is always a good thing for the marketplace. I do wonder where the batteries are made.

    The Type XXI German U-boat carried 250 tons of batteries, as memory serves, and could travel submerged for 11 days. It was extremely advanced and became the prototype for our first nuclear powered submarine...the Nautilus.

    All of the above battery interconnects were solid and un-insulated. Falling off of the suspension equipment would have been quite shocking I should think.
