Do you need some new 'Deep Cycle' batteries? Buy them now, lead is going through the roof, apparently China and India are buying it all, and using it for solar, or selling it back as batteries. pete

Yah, we feel the effect here in the States too. Lead costs more, it costs more to power manufacturing, and more to transport products to market. I bought a mid-size battery for my wife's car today WHOLESALE from my son's automotive repair shop for $85. That's at least $20 more (or about 33%) than I would have expected to pay 6 months ago. But I don't think it's practical to stockpile lead acid batteries for future use!
