Do exchanges not have those wonderful ranks of batteries any more?
Admittedly the last time I had a tour of an exchange was in the early 70s,
but then at least the big ranks of high quality lead acid batteries were

thought that was simply because the new kit didn't need quite so many
coulombs. Does this mean there's now no battery back up at all? What
