I have recently replaced the batteries in a UPS and now have a pile of 20 batteries that i would rather see to off to a new home than the recycle centre.

These batteries are out of a UPS that was 3 years old, and have still got a lot of life left in them. 

They are almost the same as:
http://www.apexbattery.com/vision-cp1290-battery-sealed-lead-acid-batteries-vision-batteries.html

The details on each are:
Vision CP 1290 12v 9AH
Value Regulated Rechargeable Battery
Constant Voltage Charge
Cycle Use: 14.5 - 14.9v
Standby Use: 13.6 - 13.8v
Initial Current: Less than 3.6A

I will take any offers for any number for interested people.  Perfect for an Aux battery for house alarms etc. Friend's have used them for their emergency lighting around the house (solar panels on the roof to charge them and 12v lights in hallways)

Located in Hamilton, and these are fairly heavy so courier could be expensive.

How heavy is each one? 15kg per ticket shouldnt make moving them _that_ expensive, but do they need special courier since they are full of acid?

I guess they would be a couple of kgs each, but dont have a set of scales to test for sure sorry.

As for couriering them, they arrived at my place on a courier from the supplier, so should be fine? Would need to check with Courier's though on their stance.
