I have been reading up on what betteries are best. The 6 Volt model L16 keeps popping up as the most reliable and longest lasting. Hold on, wait just a second please. I am still picking myself up off the floor after seeing the price per battery. The cheapest I fould is $227.00 for just one. Unfortunately it is at the lower end of the amp/hour scale. The really juicy ones are running about $357.00. Yeah, I want those, about a dozen please. Anybody know where to get these cheaper? Are they worth it? They claim the batteries will last from 7 to 10 years. Is that true? Holy poor house Batman. I mean if I start buying these I may have to mortage the house. I am running a Wagan 5000/10000 watt inverter powering all the lights in the house and most small appliances. How many of these Bad Boy Batteries will I need?
