  1. GMG says:

    They are difficult to come by and expensive. With the MEP831A, we generally recommend 2 12v batteries outside the unit itself. It’s a bit clunky, but much cheaper.

    Please provide price and availability for a manual for the 3kw 60 cycle.
    Price of the 24 volt battery too.
