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

The GC-2 Exide/Energizer batteries I saw at Sam's Club yesterday were made by Johnson Controls.

Quote:



GC2 Enertec product Blk/Blk: SAM'S CLUB
Amp-Hour at the 20 hour rate: 225Ah
Minutes at 75 amps: 110 minutes
Minutes at 25 amps: 447 minutes

Pretty comparable to the T105's



GC2 : SAM'S CLUB ENERGIZER 6v
Amp-Hour at the 20 hour rate: 225Ah
Minutes at 75 amps: 110 minutes
Minutes at 25 amps: 447 minutes
This is manufactured by Johnson Controls Mexico.

I feel like I'm going round and round, I was going to get the T-105 for $87 each and now I'm thinking of checking out Crown batteries. Where have you guys found them? It would be great if I could find a Sam's club that had some. The Sam's closer to me has Energizer for $74, I think that their made by Excide. I called US Batt and tried to find a good deal, but their pretty proud of their batteries. All I could find was the U2200 for $95. How about East Penn, any info on them??

I agree with you except this is apples to oranges.
The Trojan T-825 is an 8v battery, the Energizer GC-2 is a 6v battery.
The equivalent Energizer 8v battery has 170 AH, the same as the Trojan.

If you can get Trojan T-105's for $87, I'd buy them. I said Trojan was over-hyped, price wise but at $13 more a battery, it's a no brainer. It's the best price I've seen and you won't save anything looking anywhere else.
Time to stop second guessing and plunk down the cash.

Thanks

I only got 3.5 years out of my Sams club batteries, time for something better. I should have got some more out of them, but I didn't take care of them properly. Now I know better.

Your welcome and good luck.
Don't for gett o break them in properly.
My 2002 Sam's Club GC-2's are getting really tired and my 2004 Trojans are tired as well. Next year will be an expensive one for batteries.

When comparing batteries you want to look at lead weight and amp storage capacity ....
When it is all said and done ....... How you use and care for your batteries on a daily basis, has more to do with how long they last than what brand they are.....

New batteries need to be cycled a few times, some say over 50 cycles, but the reality is about 25 cycles ( charge and a discharge) to properly break them in. Don't run the batteries more than 10 miles during this break in period, and charge them as soon as you are done using the car for the day.
