About Battery Boxes
A battery box, also known as a battery tray, is a metal compartment for holding an industrial battery, like those used on forklifts. For dry cells, the battery box makes electrical contact with the battery terminals. For wet cells, cables are linked to the battery terminals.

The lifespan will be affected by the environment they’re used in and exposure to corrosive materials, but generally speaking carbon powder coated steel battery will about 5 years, around the same time the batteries themselves last. Properly maintained lead acid batteries should last 1,000-1,500 charging cycles.
