Fallout Shelter – Battery Bank
The above image is of a battery bank. It’s one of the many sources of power for my father’s fallout shelter. (For background, click here.) A few summers ago, my father discovered that many of the batteries were corroding and needed to be replaced. So he bought fifty new batteries (at fifty pounds each) and he and I lugged them into the shelter to hook them up to the bank. The math: 50 batteries x 50 lb. = 2.25 tons. Yeah, it was a very long day.
