They do - I've seen them. Roomsful of batteries, too. Apparently,
there was a rather embarassing "one-in-a-million" failure with one of
the phases of the power backup system, but I got a very brief second-
hand report from an indigo tech last night, so don't take my word for
it. Any indigo employees on the list able to comment?
