post induvidual pics.

if they are too big - resize them smaller - 'Paint' is about as basic as you can get - use 'stretch / skew' and half size them?

rog , i think there is not much difference in all of these forklift (open lead acid traction ) cells , do you have a temp sensor to automatically adjust charge voltage ?

But sure better double check , i don't want to blow your battery   as well there is a good bid  documented  in the outback MX 60 manual

A handy picture viewer and editor. I normally resize to 800X600 but then the quality has to be reduced a bit to get below 100k.  To adjust the saved quality you have to go to advanced  on the save   instruction.      They also have a batch re-sizer which I haven't used.   The nice thing about this program is that it can read nearly all RAW formats so it will display miked file types on one screen.

They are no OPZS  ,   just Forklift traction cells  like these  ( looks your cell type is listed here )  , but have no Idea if they are made by this company
