Urgent request for help !!
« on: 07, May, 2010 - 09:26:53 »
The lovely people at Aardman need a healthy,good condition (new ?) genuine Sinclair battery ASAP;

The prep for the shoot is moving along quickly now and I’m being asked to source all sorts of Sinclair inventions! One of the things we are hoping to feature in the item is a comparison between the C5’s lead acid battery and modern electric car lithium ion batteries.

I was wondering what the likelihood of us borrowing your C5’s battery for a few days would be? We would of course pay for postage, look after it and return it to you as soon as possible. We would need it to arrive in the office by Wednesday next week and could have it back to you by Saturday 15th.



Can anyone help out ?

Let me know as soon as possible, if would be great to be able to help these guys out with their filming project;

Can't help with a battery, but have a working Sinclair TV (the second one he brought out) and a non working flat screen tv and a Sincalir Black watch.

All in very good condition.

Let me know if any of these are needed.

Just a short update on this.

The guys at Aardman settled for a "dead" original Sinclair battery, so I've loaned out one of mine that I use to weigh down my gazebo's at car shows etc.  Here's a quote from a recent email;

"The battery arrived safe and sound by the way, its on its way to meet Clive Sinclair himself as we speak"

Because I've yet to meet the great man himself, I find myself feeling jealous of an old battery  :o ;D

Ask him to sign the battery for you .....Could be worth quite a bit in time

Funnily enough, when I found out where it was headed I did ask for it to be signed  ;D

...but looks like I missed the boat  :'(;

Ah sorry Karl, I’m afraid the battery signing wasn’t possible by the time I got your email… but at least you can know that its been on TV with him and, more importantly, Wallace and Gromit!!
