Re: Battery lifetimes RE: East Coast outage?

Thanks. A couple of people told me that the target is 8hrs for Bell Canada huts. So hopefully some power will make it there before long. Not sure how well they will prioritize what huts to charge with portable gensets. I imagine they dont of course have a portable genset for every hut out there.

hours we will start seeing infrastructure problems as remote batteries

generators, but predicting battery lifetimes is as much art as science.
Sometimes the battery doesn't last as long as predicted.
