GNB PDQ-23 Lead-Calcium batteries, fresh out of service with one of America's
top cell phone companies. These are a great choice for a solar/alternative
energy system. These batteries have a 1995 date code and a 20 year design
life. These have been immaculately maintained, as evidenced by their clean
plates, lack of sediment, and crystal-clear electrolyte. These were taken
out of service in the last couple of weeks due to the need for an even
larger UPS system. These are not the new "Classic" label shown below and in
the link, but are essentially the same. All are showing voltages of 2.07
volts (+/- .01). These have the 1.250 specific gravity. Each battery weighs
228 lbs, 6-12 on a pallet. I will have the freight code by Monday, and we
have worked closely with Freightquote.com. I will post this contact info as
soon as I have the freight code. There will be a $5.00 handling charge per
pallet to cover the cost of the pallet, banding, and each pallet will come
fully shrink-wrapped. (Will also consider interesting trades; Gooseneck 20K
flatbed, firearms, or ?) Have questions? Call Jeff at (254) 228-6503 or
(254) 791-2340. See details at:

No doubt they are in good condition. But lead-calcium batteries are *not*
the best choice for solar/alternative energy systems. They are best for
'float charging' and only very occasional discharge. For standy UPS,
they're just the thing. For a solar system that discharges/charges every
day, they wouldn't last very long. Most likely, the original warranty will
not stand up in such service (the number of cycles would be exceeded long
before the calendar life).
You planning on shipping these things wet??? whoa....
