For $160 I got a new daka 24v, 255ah warehouse tug battery, it's too small at 561lb and not really 36 volt enough to be a real forklift battery. But chemistry and construction are the same. Some air force retard ordered the wrong battery for their forklift or tug and another airforce retard was like "let's hide our screwup by sending it to the scrap yard". Otherwise it's about a $1,000 battery. That's about 6.1kwh of battery, or about 3 kwh useable at a 6 hour discharge rate which means 42 amps of steady discharge, which is fairly substantial. I don't have any other 24v accessories besides a 24v 7 amp floor scrubber charger I bought last year at the same scrap yard for $3. I can hook my transformer tig or my alternator welder up to it to charge it since that 7 amp floor scrubber charger will barely float charge it. But at best that's a bad idea. I think I will pair it with a 24v 1,500w or 2,000w 120v pure sine inverter. Later on this may become my 24v water pump battery for the well house. Then give this battery it's own charge controller and solar panels. I have my 120v, 105 amp transformer tig on it charging it now. Turned all the way up its putting 30 amps out to the battery.
