I've tried to replicate these results on ordinary SLAs and can't come close.

Feeding the SLA's output to an HP3580A spectrum analyser and dialling it to 100uV full scale I get a trace at the -60dB mark with a couple of small bumps at 100, 200 and 400 Hz which I put down to mains harmonics. That's -60 dB with reference to the 100uV full scale so we're talking 100nV, or -150dB referred to the battery's DC voltage.

Same result with the battery sending 200 mA through a wirewound resistor.
Interesting. The plot he gave does seem to be suspect. For example, why does it have a large 50 Hz peak?

I've just read part of the thread in which the plot was originally posted (in post #202). I recommend it for further reading about battery-based power supplies:
