You may look at used agm batteries.

The cell sites have many different and odd sizes of agm batteries that are of very high grade.

These are changed out at area level before end of life.

This work is done by Battery vendors who scrap the old ones

Some of these companies are Mom & pop and will resell the harvested batteries and build the special cables needed.

The batteries new are over $500.00 each, but can be real cheap later.

I have posted another thread regarding such place in Stockton CA. We used them before for MH batteries then we purchased 9 last week for a forklift project.

They will ship, or you can do web search to locate dealers near you and call them to ask.

Avoid interstate, their stores will not sell used product, you will need to find private companies who provide commercial service to backup Battery power systems.

What size 12 V batteries are you using? Standard 6V deep cycle (Golf Cart Batteries) are no taller then standard 12 V batteries. However you will need use 2 or 4, 6 V batteries combinations to get 12 V output. I bought the last two at Costco.
