I need one 8 volt battery.
I hope all of you are smarter than me and when you buy new batteries you keep at least one old one. Right now I need only one and hate to put a brand new one in with 5 old ones.

Be careful Harriette. All batteries "should" be replaced together so each is of the same standard/efficiency. A bad battery in amongst a good set will overload the good ones as they try to make up for the bad one and wreck all the good ones quickly. Also you can't just keep an old battery without keeping it on permanent recharge as they go bad quickly without this.

Harriette, try and find someone with an old one. Phil is right. You may ruin your new one.

Alex Canales 635-8170 in the DFC area refurbishes batteries and charges $100. I have always been happy with his service and he will give some guarantee.

Thanks - I do understand and know that if I put in a new one the existing ones will pull it down to their strength - hence need for used one.

......and the flip side that is more important is a bad second hand one will kill the rest of the good ones. Make sure the replacement is good was my point - just in case you missed it.

Thanks Phil - yes, I do understand. It's a real dilemma.
