Default Re: costco 36V battery / vs / trojan / exide. ???

Can't speak for Costco but the batteries at Sam's Club are Exide, made by Johnson Controls. The GC2 6v has a rating of 220AH and a weight of 68 lbs. The Trojan T-105 has a rating of 225AH and weighs 62 lbs.
IMHO, it's a push as far as performance goes, Trojans are about $110 each and the Exides from SC are $72 each. For a six pack, the cost difference is $228 (35% less), the rest is up to you to determine which you feel more comfortable with.[/QUOTE]

I bought 8v batteries from Sams and they are Interstate. They have 6v as well and I assume they are Interstate as well. This is in another discussion on this board. Here is the link.

Good comparison here. This is how you do it.... Throw the names out the window because all that realy matters is lead weight ...... The more weight = the more lead = more amp capacity .... Looks like your interstate batteries weigh in better than the trojans, as do some of the other brands. Trojan is loosing it's TOP rating. It's all about the lead weight. THe cases are all the same.
Once you get them home..... Proper use and maintenance play a bigger part in useful life performance than brand.

Not to derail too much, but rather than start a new thread........ I purchased a used 2004 Club Car villager 4 last week and the prior owner had just put new batterys in last year. Without taking them out it is hard to tell much about them, but I can tell that I have six 8v batts. Five show Power Source on it and says it's distributed by Battery Source. The sixth one says Golf Pro 220 Deep Cycle on it.

Anyone have any idea on who makes these? I'm guessing he either bought 5 new ones, or all 6, and I'm guessing they probably all came from Battery Source, but don't know for a fact.

One of the battery source, power source batteries, had this code on the edge 8G28KC3C if that means anything.

All 6 check out at full charge around 8.7v each and a little over 52v combined.

There isnt that many manufactuers of golf car batteries out there,These companies buy these batteries from manufacturers and put their label on them.All the batteries i have seen that come from sams are mexican batteries and some come from china.I have been selling exide for 5 yrs and I dont think they sell to sams club.At least around here they dont.Now interstate lost their contract with US battery and are being made in mexico now,so all instate are going to be cheaper made.Crown battery has come around full circle and Club car is putting them in their cars no more trojans for them.

Was trying to add to the topic about who makes what battery. Seemed like it fit here as opposed to starting a whole new battery thread. Sorry.

Well I can tell you this: in 2002, June or July, I think I bought a new set of 8V for my Carryall 48V cart. I'm pretty picky about maintaining them, distilled water, always charge after use, keeping them clean from corrosion, etc. Well, here we are in 2010 and I still have the same set and they have not let me down yet. Granted, I'm probably at the end of their usable life, but come on, 8 years from SC batts ain't too shabby! When these finally go toes up, I'm going back to Sam's. Trojans, IMHO are over-rated. Sometimes you do get what you pay for, sometimes you don't. Just my .02

I'm not sure where you got your information from but the Trojan T-875's are 170 AH and the Sam's Club, Energizer by Johnson Controls is 170 AH as well.
I think Trojans a re overrated but not in capacity, just in pricing.
