Does this size battery work well on the RD 250/350's ?

My ds7 and r5 battery boxes are 112mm so with a bit of (ahem)adjustment I think I can persuade it to fit and as RDJAMES has confirmed to me that they work well on his 400 thats good enough for me and I will grab a couple at that price. :)

Reminds me of 'Escape to the Chateau'. The Guy who took a panel saw to his battery to make it fit his digger. He then tried to fix the leak with a tube of silicon and finally used the battery on its side to stop it leaking. :o

I'm sure your reduction will be more considered :D
