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.

           It's not the years, it's the mileage.
