Thanks for the reply; I've got some questions/notes inline:

Wow, that's much warmer than I thought I'd read. The phrase I remember
was "work at all human-tolerable temperatures" and something about them
freezing at like -50C but I can't find the posting now...

The ones I had looked at were bb600's I think rated at 34ah. Also, 500
cycles seems real short...I've seen people claiming 30-40 years of
continuous usage. Is there some big difference to these bb600 (a
military spec, iirc) cells vs. the ones you used to service?
