I'm not good at chemistry, so I'm not sure what is involved with descaling a plate. You might have to melt them down and create new plates.Along those lines, having a battery that I can interact with means I can pull the plates and descale them. When a plate wears out, it can be replaced without tossing the whole battery. Venting should be easy since hyrogen gas is light.
Other than the nasty possiblity of explosion (and what is life without adventure?), I don't see a down side. Granted I haven't checked the costs of plate yet....
As for suppliers? You might try http://www.globalspec.com" [Broken] as a starting point.
