Yes, but the question is whether those battery rebuilders are just de-sulphating old, dead batteries, or are actually 'rebuilding' them by installing new plates etc. I don't know the answer to this, but would be interested in reading about, for instance, the measured current capacity and lifespan of a new versus a 'rebuilt' battery.

Jeremy, still hoping to be convinced

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

Jeremy - my local Interstate dealer has a whole area set up to "rebuild" batteries on site, and sell them as such - I assume they take the best candidates from their take outs and do what is necessary to bring them back to life, and the rest are recycled - I'm not sure how many of these involve replacing the plates - but they have alot of them - FWIW
