Pretty common stuff,, Forklifts, Submarines and Residential/Commercial solar power all use big batteries. For 150 years AT&T/Bell Telephone ran on batteries 24 hours a day/365 Days a year.

Phone company batteries ended with Fiber optics I think, 10 Years ago AT&T sold off all of the copper wire infrastructure and the battery system with it I believe. The phone company based their phone systems on batteries because commercial power was not available everywhere until recent times.

I like that they can be installed in 4 parallel strings and also 4 batteries in series, for up to 16. That’s a maximum of 29 usable kWh at a price of $22.000.

About 1/4 of that may not be too bad compared to other options like diesel generators in small RVs. Still too pricey for me at well over $700 per kWh. Getting close to being able to justify larger systems though.

The OP's link was a google ad services link to this page. uBlock Origin blocked it, and 29 other external scripts at this forum thread! :-)

Do the handles on the battery case prevent you from being able to sit the battery on it's end side?
Example : I want to sit the battery in a upright position kinda like a tower , it looks like the battery case has plastic sticking out on each end for rope handles to go through , I'm thinking that the plastic that sticks out won't let the battery sit flat.
