Our friend Dallas, who in the past served as a Moderator here and used his bus knowledge to help MANY bus nuts, both online and offline, is in ICU.  He suffers from Congestive Heart Failure, and other related issues.  Cat announced yesterday he was admitted due to extreme low blood pressure and a hemoglobin level of 5 (normal level for men is 13.5-17.5).  She updated this morning that he is stable, but that is all the info she has right now.

Please include Dallas and Cat in your prayers.

Interesting, but I wonder who actually buys them at that low price.

Too bad they can't put that same technology toward a battery for a cordless vacuum cleaner. They konk out in about 5 minutes after a full charge.

Dang, $4K for a 250 AH 12V battery.  I wonder what lead acid battery they are "20% - 25%" more expensive than.  You have to look at charge and discharge rates to see what they could actually do.

Scott, they are super heavy and have a slow charge / discharge rate but are very durable and last a long time.
They might be better suited for a stationary application.

If I was spending that kind of money I would be going this route > http://www.balqon.com/store-2/#!/HIQAP-12V-9-kWhr/p/34783145/category=12286435

3000 cycles at 70% discharge and very light.

Never heard of that brand but they are still around I see them on standby generators at the casinos here.

One guy here had a set in Eagle he bought and removed the batteries because he didn't know what they were. They are neat when you fill the cells you cover the acid and water with mineral oil to keep the water from evaporating sorta like making them maintenance free old technology making a come back like the induction cook tops from the 1930's

Ooh. Good one Dave. I wouldn't be surprised. I have the exact symptoms except brakes don't work. I'll dig around the bus next summer and see if there is one

Can someone tell me if this is just a dream?

Is there a battery that I could buy that actually lasts 15-20 years?

Scott just wondering if you maybe have a 24 to 12 volt converter that might be shot in the back somewhere. Mine was blowing the runners but I had stop and turns. Figured out it was the converter box doing it. change it and all was well.
