L-16 Battery Box
Our L-16 Battery Box provides a neat, safe, vented enclosure for up to eight L-16 batteries. Made from high-density polyethylene (the same tough, non-corrosive material used for the outer shell of most batteries), the L-16 Battery Box will keep your batteries safe and clean while containing spills and leaks. Many boxes may be used when more than 8 batteries are needed for your bank. We do not recommend using "string-per-box" configuration: multiple strings, each in its own box in parallel - instead, we recommend choosing a higher Amphour, lower voltage battery unit so the bank is configured in one single string. A large 48 volt bank for example would be a string of 24 2-volt 1100 AH L16 cells mounted in 3 boxes. There is no requirement that the batteries be the popular L-16 format - practically any battery may be used so long as it fits in the prescribed space with some maneuvering room.
The Battery Box is designed for interior use only, and is not approved for direct burial. It includes 1" FIP threaded hole in the lid and barb adapter for connecting 1" flexible tube for the purpose of venting hydrogen & corrosive gasses to the outside. Easily drilled for conduit fittings. A 2.469" inch hole is good for 2" nominal conduit fittings - a nice size for routing large 2/0 or 4/0 battery cables. The box is constructed to telescope which provides 2 distinct advantages: shipping size is smaller, and lift height is reduced when loading batteries into tray. The 2 telescoping components, the bottom tray and midsection, are held in their service position by a set of 1/4" stainless bolts (included).
