They called them Edison Cells.  About 1.2 VDC per cell.  1.0 dead.  About 1.5 to 1.6 fully charged.  Alkaline.  Not acid.  Big, heavy and kinda very spendy.  Bundle them up to get what voltage needed and you would be good to go.  Not very efficient weight wise for the wattage provided.  But ... they are still used in many applications.  HB of CJ (old coot)

Now wondering if they have licked the shorting out problem using very thin close plates?  This might reduce the size, weight and cost.

Maybe they wanted to take a journey to the center of the earth but changed their mind.

I have a buddy who just replaced his 3-8 volt-820 amp Surrette's (24V house system)
 he paid 1100 ea this is his 1st battery replacement in 20 years since he bought the bus new, now that's pretty good service from a set of batteries I would believe

Dal and cat prayers to you both. Dal help me get back on the road when he heard from a friend we were stuck in a parking lot and could not move. He told us exactly what to do and spent 2 hours checking and finding the problem and got us going again. Just the kind of guy he is.

A 255AH AGM Lifeline battery costs somewhere between $500 and $600. For the price of the lithium or even the Edison battery you can get as much life per dollar.
