I've just been reading some articles about Hydrospout water turbines and came across this information sheet on looking after batteries.

Hope it's OK mods, not selling anything but it might be of use to someone.

Nice one Andy and 'all in one place'. I'm a regular visitor (though not for a while) to the Powerspout website and even get their news letter but this one has passed my by. I see there's one on battery sheds too and not tarpaulins  hysteria
