The Lead Batteries are having problems

My range is not what it was and so the batteries are all out of the EV and back at Northeast Battery getting tested to see how they perform under a load.  They have also found some grey sludge in them and they are being very helpful to try and find out what is causing the problem.

I am also working on a new DC to DC converter for the 12 volt system.  I am using some Vicor bricks and some heat sink and should be able to eliminate another 30 lbs of weight.
