You'll need to either cut or unscrew some bolts in order to get a
large battery of that size loaded onto Zeta.  The bolts from the
low-friction rollers block the entrance to Zeta's interior.

You didn't state the other dimensions of the proposed battery.

The total height of 2.5 inches is a tight fit.  If you use this
battery, you will need to raise the 2nd-level platform by about 0.5
inches.  This will make the belts that power the wheels tighter.  This
may be good or bad.
