kopkei, did you actually watch the video(s)? I mean, no where in the videos cited does it discuss apple cider vinegar.

Actually, it looks like the area footprint is not that bad (2X?), so much for my "eye-balling" it. If they could halve the price, they would start looking quite good being that they are 100% DOD batteries with about the same cycle life as flooded lead-acid at 50% DOD. Economies of scale and all that.
