A tip that might solve the expense problem: I know a guy who services security & fire alarms. He can pretty much keep me in as many used 12v 7AH SLA batteries as I can take. I've actually been using them (a couple in parallel) in the ForkenSwift for accessory power.

These are automatically replaced when they don't meet the company's 80% performance criteria.

Might be worth dropping by a local security alarm business or making a few calls.
You (or someone else in the know) should post up sometime on various sources of free batts and things that might be useful to people (like the vw solar panels), you know?
