    I also hunch it would serve you to put a little tire-patch cement on the two faces of your cut. Patching glue partially dissolves the surfaces and allows a certain amount of bonding of the two rubber...

    The ones I use have a little carbon filter that's supposed to vent and purify the outgas. They don't seem to work but that may be because they are up top adjacent to the ostomy, where I slime a new...

    What's different from the Pb battery scheme is that it has a connection to the middle of the two batteries (@12V level)

    128Wh/12V=10.66Ah was my logic which I think is right.

    spec sheet states Lithium Ah=10
    lead/acid equivalent Ah, 24-35Ah which is 2.4-3.5x10"lithium" Ah

    I've had pretty good luck in that regard, but lately (72yoa and 24 years post), my arms are wearing out.
