Can your potential seller confirm the specifications of these submarine batteries?

Until you know the capacity of these submarine batteries no-one can estimate how many you need.

Is your "caps lock" stuck? - in forumland, it's viewed as "shouting" - and actually renders posts likely to be ignored Wink

Get all the details you can, even manufacturers descriptions/ code/ reference numbers,
otherwise,
its like asking us:

'How many drums do I need to save rainwater?'

We do not know the size of the drums or how much rain you want to store.

drums = batteries
stored rain = daily energy demand

Without verified maintenance records I would suspect you'd only get scrap value for them. May be a bit more.Only guessing though.....

 Scrap worth is going to be based purely on the weight of the lead in them...

 For reuse as an energy store that is going to be down to the condition & capacity...

 Nobody can guess their worth until you have more information about them I'm afraid...

Being a military vehicle, arnt they going to be pretty well maintained? And a standard(ish) size?
