Just seen this on fleebay, its a used 48v forlikft battery set.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORKLIFT-BATTERY-SOLAR-BATTERY-OFF-GRID-BATTERY-DEEP-CYCLE-BATTERY-48v-/322545351530?hash=item4b19337b6a:g:y-UAAOSwcgNZNwus

And the description says,

48v traction battery from a forklift I have no idea what model it's for but have taken photos with tape measure.
This battery is like new however it's been stood for 3 to 4 years with out being used but I believe it will be fine when charged as it's still showing 30volts.
facepalm

Thats gonna need a lot of EQ charging. flyingpig
