Exciting times: Load shedding and a rainy day!

Oh yes. The same is true of Air conditioners. If we had any sense, we’d have those installed in winter, and negotiate a discount. Is that what we do? No, of course not. We call the guy in February and pay premium prices :slight_smile:

I had a pal who worked for one of the big SLA suppliers. They ship (not fly) containers of these to SA. And yes, when LS rears it’s ugly head they get swamped by customers desperate to replace their dead batteries.
He referred to them being the ‘Lord of the Flies’ during these times.
