Default Re: Choosing new batterries....

what would concern me is the pure unknowns about them......you would think that if they were close to a trojen that we would hear about them from a lot of people who are using them.............even more down south...........that dosn,t mean they arn,t good its just the unknown....at least with the T,s you know what your getting............but again i always say it not always whose name or what you pay its how you break them in and maintain them........................................

We have been using them here on the west coast for about 8 months. So far they seem to be a good battery. I have a set in yard cart. and have put several sets in customers carts without 1 failure or warranty issue. We think Korea makes a better battery than Mexico or China. Time will tell the tale. How you use the batteries, including run/charge habits & maintenance practices will greatly effect the useful life of your batteries ~ possibly more so than which brand you buy. If you are on a budget and close to optimum run-time is close enough then I would suggest them. If you live in hilly country or have a modified cart with big controller, motor, tires, etc. then I would suggest you go with a battery with larger capacity like T suggested.
Warranty is the same as Trojan on theses batteries.

I went to Sams and bought a set. I have been breaking them in right, so if they last four or five years I will be happy. I spent like $450. That is about half of what trojans cost, so it will be worth it if they last that long.

Scotty,

What YUASA part number, or battery number are you using? When I look at the YUASA website I don't see any golf car batteries listed.

THANKS, Dave

I'd say it would probably be hard to go wrong with the Yuasa batteries for $80 each.
i pickled them up and am trying them out. they are actually 64 lb. and 115 at 75 and the trojan 875 is only 117 at 75 and 63 lbs. on another note. when you guys say as long as you break them in right and then do maintenance you should be fine can you elaborate on what breaking them in right consists of?

Maintenance i get baking soda and water to clean, maintain water levels anything else?
