Default Re: 8 6v batteries, how to make it a 36v pack.

good call.
Here is my reasoning. I don't have a 48v charger yet. I have been looking at the delta-q quip on board charger with the 12v deverter built-in.

I want the extra ah of the 6v battery to run my lights and stereo. Plus we goto ocean lakes in the summer and we do alot of late night cruising. So that is why I was trying to go with the 8 6v's

I like being different and engineering weird stuff.

Now I understand !!!!
Man if U could get the T145's at a good price U could light up the field for the good ol softball game

Which brings up a point , do U have a special contact or is this price something anyone can do ?

it is a battery place here in TN that deals with alot of the golf courses in middle east tn. Cookeville chattanooga crossville etc.

They are the trojan distributor for the area. They get first dibs on the trojan seconds which the guy says trojan builds like a t 105. He says they are batteries that the mold color was bad etc. there isn't alot of them through out the year. like this is only his third pallet he has gotten this year.

They aren't labeled trojan so he can only sale them for half price etc. I have the number for the guy at work that i can give ya.

What i did was go on the trojan website and ask for the closest wholesaler to me and this guy is who they gave me number too and he called me.

so i would give trojan a shout and see if there might be someone close to you like this.

he also deals in crown batteries. I was talking to my local club car dealer that club car is doing a trial with crown batteries and us batteries to maybe start using them as oem batteries. from what i read on the crown batteries they have been around as long as trojan but they are just now working on trying to catch up on trojan's tech.

so if club car is giving them a shout i would say they are worth looking into.

Crown is good for the price but they have a high failure rate IMHO and have a ways to fgo to be compared to Trojan
