How, or how long, does it take for battery bank to upgrade?

Need more power! *Tim Allen grunt*

Do I need to find batteries or something to put into a stockpile?

I'll assume it's the standard upgrade time. So 5 days to level 2 and then 10 days for level 3. Also I would recommend you to manually upgrade it due to it having a tree. As well, you do not need to have anything in the stockpile of it.

I still need to max out defense for it to upgrade, right? That's the overall issue I'm having-trying to avoid turrets, but doesn't seem possible :(.

Yes, it still requires you have your defense score up. Also requires a the level 2 happiness rating. (see the wiki on that, I don't recall if it's 70 or 75)

Yea, happiness is a tricky thing. Trying to AVOID the coal plant for the negative happiness, so that's why I'm using this in the first place!

coal plant happiness impact depends heavily on your settlement size. In a settlement with 10 people it will only drop your overall happiness by 5.
