The price I was quoted for 8 batteries (T 105s) was $771. That includes delivery and installation. Unless I can find some old batteries, I also have to pay 2 core charges (15/each) as I am only trading in 6 batteries.

Ken Spano seems to be the biggest supplier of Trojan batteries locally and has a good reputation based on folks recommendations.

My dilemma now is drive 1hr each way for Crown CR-225 for $89 or drive 5min for T-105+ for $89??
Will he sell what he has been smoking?

I'm just relating what he said, 6 is lighter than 8 anyway.

Work gets in the way :-), then weather s*cks. Plan is 6-8v this week.

I did just hear something which does not sound right to me which I will run by others. I was told that my current charger for my 02 CC DS (original) will not properly charge 8-6v batteries. Anyone else think this?

I was under the impression the charger and the OBC simply charged the batteries as a pack (48v). Does anyone think it matters that there are 8-6v versus 6-8v?

Thanks

Good question, I don't know. I was thinking the same as you. I have been running 8-6v's for the past few years and I don't think charging was a problem. But, I can't really say since I really didn't care for my batteries very well. I'm getting a new set in the next week or two and If the charger/charging is an issue I may go back to 6-8v. I don't think it is a problem though.
