No, I mean a leyden jar for condensing electricity and carrying it to where it might be profitably employed for something like making a load of monks jump in the air simultaneously.

I think with batteries, its very much luck. I bought a car battery from a ford dealer years ago. It packed up just out of guarantee. I currently have a battery that i use for my winch that gets charged when i think of it & i cant believe how old it is. It came from a Jeep Cherokee that i sold two vehicles ago.Must be 8 or ten years ago.Still going.
