Suite #8 has a blown fuse and loose wires. One of the suit chargers has a loose wire as well. Both will be repaired, but the source of the blown fuse is a mystery at the moment. We have a bag of spares.

Two suit batteries labeled as bad were tested and had low capacity at 2.5-3.5 A-hr. Two unlabeled and non-boxed batteries were tested at 2.9-4.7 A-hr. There are more unlabeled that I assume are deficient and not planning to test, but can test them if needed. I am now testing a boxed and apparently new battery.
