Whoa there this is weird, I just finished watching a thing on BBC Iplayer about Marshall amps, Lemmy featured a few times

go here if your interested http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b04c3l7j/play-it-loud-the-story-of-the-marshall-amp

First of all, you can't watch BBC iPlayer in the U.S., but I found the video on YouTube. Then, Bill, I thought you were all about agriculture (and BSAs). Finally (in the realm of off-topic), while Marshall was busy becoming the biggest thing in guitar amps, the company I was with (Cerwin-Vega) was busy becoming the biggest thing is bass-guitar loudspeakers. Remember them bass cabinets with the powder-blue rectangle on the front? We gave Acoustic Control the design in order to sell raw loudspeakers. I hand-made the first prototype of the cabinet for them to copy.

Now, as for batteries and accumulators. With  respect to the "Orgone Accumulator," I think I will leave the search for that until another life. As for batteries, I'm having trouble figuring out where they fit in this thread. Just an historic look at the earliest wet cells?

There are two current Battery threads - maybe I've had a cross over moment!!

 Yep Bill I was confused too- that's why it took me a while to add to the other one; "battery issue"...where my issue went from here on P2...re the music stuff, well one thing leads to another..think it started digressing with the mention of accumulators...but it's still kinda related *conf*
