This is 12 units of 8 PzS 640L Traction Battery Bank.
Traction batteries have long been the "hidden secret" of cheap off-grid installations. Pricing is in general 25% cheaper then dedicated solar batteries and as these batteries are designed to be charged and discharged daily, to power forklift operation, they can take quite some abuse.
Forklift batteries have thicker plates, this is because the heavy discharges caused by forklift operation, can cause the lead plates to buckle. Thicker plates means stronger but less efficient batteries, with less active surface area. Fork lift batteries also use a bit more distilled water then the dedicated solar batteries.
We have customers using forklift batteries, we have been monitoring the performance of these systems for a few years and are now happy to present our "low budget" traction battery range in 12, 24 and 48v configuration.
