Reconditioning quote is $430, including shipping and new batteries but
not missing plastics. By comparison I can get a used-but-tested one in
better cosmetic shape than mine (i.e, all plastics present) for $390
shipped from CDN Systems in Austin. Tough call which is the better deal.
Haven't asked 3P about trade-ins ... didn't know they did trade-in. I'd
assume it'd be comparable to reconditioning cost.

Yeah, I'm pretty happy with them. Use them for all my UPS battery needs.

They're new to me. I'll check'em out.
