    Hollis H-160 replacement battery?

    25.6v life was the recommendation the whole time. Those are also, and unfortunately incorrectly referred to as 24v lifepo4 batteries since they are designed to replace SLA in many applications. It is...

    Hollis H-160 replacement battery?

    I accept your apology.

    I have a set of PST (Genesis) HP100 3500psi hot dipped galvanized doubles.

    Last hydro May 2016.

    They are located in Rockville, MD. You would need to pick up.

    Hollis H-160 replacement battery?

    Looking for Worthington/Genesis hot dipped galvanized HP-100s, will consider Fabers, and LP-85.

    Attending the NSS-CDS conference next week, and diving West Palm this weekend. Prefer to pickup.
