photography backup question: replacing batteries in ones' UPS - where's a good place to get them? my UPS is probably 10 years old and the batteries are well knackered, seemingly the genuine APC ones (there are two) cost a kings ransom. Any ideas?

Did exactly that last week, two SLA batteries from Jaycar, $40.00 odd each. Replaced like with like, they were previously replaced a little over 8 years ago going by the date on the batteries (not that I remember doing it).

yea I haven't seen the other threads nor did I read the title while I was at work. Just answering the question would be good enough.

Thought so, ID4 is coming soon.

I never thought you would see Aurora so far north.

Cool, your lucky that you can capture it. I don't think I will ever see it up this far.

I see there are a large number of photos now being posted in Facebook

So, I need to get back into this photography thing. When's the next actual GKPE happening? I have a basic new camera and a couple of Lenses.
