    Re: Load Shedding Batteries

    Wow! What an error!
    Time for a new electrician?
    Incidentally my LC is into its 8th year - great battery. I am sure the Ctek D250 has helped.

    Victoria Falls - good flows

    Vic Falls is seeing good flows currently three times more than during last year's drought.

    Their camouflage is tops so you don't easily see them.
