Can someone please explain to me just why some plastic battery boxes are in excess of $300?
Is it just because they're sold as a 'battery box' for folks using solar, and they have a couple of holes punched in them already?
What's the difference in these? Corrosion resistance?

Looks like a lot of work goes into those $300 boxes. They do look nice. I'll take the $20 plywood box .
 
See where your hand is? Not there. It's next to this tiny ad:
