Grid connected batteries are being used for many grid services that would be much better and more cheaply delivered by large-scale long-duration storage, for four reasons:

- Dedicated batteries need to be built to deliver each of many services, and
- The services that they can deliver are often inferior.
We will consider what they are being built to deliver, service by service.
