Quick test with non rechargeable dead battery

Hi all, I tried a quick version of the 3 battery setup. I had tried splitting the positive previously with a non brushed fan motor with no results around a year ago(did not wait 15 minutes though). I have 2 sla batteries which have a total of 25 volts as the source. I ran for about 30 seconds with a dead 9 volt alkaline battery in parallel and a small brushed motor from a cigarette machine. the 9 volt is nearly completely charged in this time frame.

I am still searching for viable dead batteries, although i have a bunch, but they appear to mostly have bad cells or are all dried out.
