If you find anything close to that price, please post about it. I need
a couple of pairs of RBC7's this year too. Looks like prices are up
about 1/3 from when I last bought them a couple of years ago. I went
with Power Quality Inc (powerqualityinc.com) then.
Shipping costs are up everywhere though, so it doesn't seem like
batteries that weigh 30 lbs a pair are going to be very cheap.
