    Default In need of a couple of used but good 6v batteries please....

    It seems that 2 of my inverter batteries have died. The remaining 6 are in good condition although over two years old and I am advised not to add brand new ones.

    Does anyone have one or two 6v batteries which are used but still good which I could purchase please?

    I live nearby to Sabaneta de Yasica so close by would be nice but will be prepared to travel if necessary.

    Thanks in advance folks.

    I think most people would advise you to buy all new ones.

    Buying all new ones is the best but if your budget doesn't allow then this is the next best option. WB, Doesn't your guy have or know where to get a couple?

    He says I don't need all new ones at the moment and, yes, budget is a big problem in that respect. He doesn't have any at the moment but will look out for some for me but thought it might well be worthwhile asking the DR1 community too.

    Hi Whirley,
    We will be changing four of our twelve soon and may have some good ones - I expect to do this in the next week or so once we have our Residencies sorted on Tuesday.
    I have a battery load tester to sort out the good from the bad and it is possible to put old good batteries in the same line.
    Will let you know by Wednesday if we can help

    Huge thanks to Olly (and the team) for helping me out by finding me an additional good battery, checking all my others properly and giving me sound advice.

    Alexis Inverters in GH also came up with help and batteries for which I am also grateful.

    Hope I am now all set for a while anyway.

    But, it didn't last long.... once again, I have just one battery which is dragging the others down so that they fail/ run down far more quickly than they should. As previously, I have been told not to replace this with a brand new one but to try to find a good used one with ample life left in it to join the existing bank. Can anyone help or know where I can source this please?
