Supposed to be working on the batt trays with Ivan this weekend.

One good note: the freebie batteries which we got (and recharged) back in January apparently are still holding their charge. Checked them yesterday.

Still haven't load tested them, but they've now passed two tests: accepting & holding a charge.

I'm going to contact my guy at the forklift company and see if he has any more trade-ins coming in. I'm sure we'll find some weak ones in our current batch when we start loading them up, and it would be nice to have some back ups.
