Let's not forget NiCds, my bank of them gets used at 80%
I know these may not be the norm, but there are still very large ones around that can be for home use.
I've not heard from TomW in a long time, but his bank was nearing the 3Kw size of NiCDs and at 80% that would be around 2.4Kw.

Hopefully in two years I'll have two banks.  New one around 1000 ah then a portable one around 400 ah. the second one will be on wheels and be used for a small cabin I wish to build in a canyon unseen unless you walk up to it. Nice view, with a small spring, no real road. I'll charge it up at the house then tow it there.  Not much for living full time but good for a week at a time. A total get away place.13
