Interested in starting my own Power wall and really still a big newbie.

I have given up looking to be honest. Also had some other priorities that filled the "I have to have more" need for now.

how unfortunate you're in an area short of cells/packs... down here in the hutt i had a chat with the bloke at the recycling centre and he says all kinds of people come and buy them although they don't sell as much as they have so the boxes are huge, $2 per laptop battery seems somewhat fair in NZD

Awesome, might be worth a drive down there. The grumpy old man at my recycling yard gave me a very stern "We dont sell to the public" response.

I am a bit concerned that DCKiwi has seen this post Smile
