My dad runs the sams 6v batteries in his cart and has for the last 2 years. I took his cart out and played 54 holes of golf and still had juice left. I'm not bragging on them or ditching them, just telling you what I did.

Little more food for thought on Sam's batts,they are renting the name from Energizer,they are distributed by Johnson Controls,and made by God knows who in Mexico.I have no long term history,have a set in my shop cart for about a year now,so far so good.What bothered me when I bought them they are not date stamped.They have date stickers on them,knowing full well that Sams,Johnson Controls,and all of Mexico are upstanding business folks why aren't they stamped?Could it be Nah!!!they wouldn't do that,Would they?Dave

I have spoke to many ("reputable") people about these batteries. The one i put the most weight in is a VERY knowledgeable manager at Lester chargers. He explained that something that I don't hear mentioned much... which is the quality control into the "lead" which is an alloy in the battery. If the correct quality controls are in place the batteries will be fine. Undoubtedly everyone's (including mine as an Energizer owner) concerns come from what are the quality controls in the Mexican plant? Is every 5th or 10th battery tested compared to every other at Trojan? Can't really say... I think most of us are speculating based on other experiences. I have had the batteries in my cart for about 3 months now and have been very happy with the batteries. My brother just bought an ez go with the same batteries 2 years old and the batteries still work/load test/volt test/charge great. I'm with Scotty on these.... maintenance! I have seen 15 year old yugos on the road... LOL I'm not saying that they are as good as Trojan, but you can only expect to get out of something what you are willing to put in... I have also seen many 2 year old Trojans that are shot due to lack of proper care/water levels. Just my 2 cents!!

I am running a mixed pack of energizers that I installed as the old trojans died out the oldest battery in my pack is an 07 energizer that was in the cart when I bought, the rest of the pack are 09 energizers I put in, two installed Sept. 09, three installed Oct. 09. I have been running these batteries for about 7 months with no problems, I charge after every use and maintain water levels regularly. The pack has had on average about 141 charging cycles since I installed them ( I play golf 4 or 5 times a week) I have not seen any significant problems with them, charge times, volt readings, specific gravity has been good. Even the old 07 in the pack is performing admirably, so I feel it is safe to assume that if you take care of these batteries you can expect to get at least 3 years out of them and probably more. Just my opinion
