Default T - 875 vs T - 890

I checked with a golf cart place about some new batteries. I wanted T-890 but they said that the difference in the cost between the T-875 and T-890 doesn't justified the extra power and recommended I get the T-875. What do you think about this? Thanks

Most people would agree, the cost difference is significant but the amperage capacity is noticeable. Check out TH's ezgo build. He got the 890 because he asked which are the best 8v I can get.

What is a fair price to pay for a T-890?

ask your self this question " do you need more runtime for what you are going to use the cart for"

If you are not going to be running the cart for a long period of time, then you can stick with 875"s. You dont get longer life, and you dont get more power, just longer run time.

More power? The batteries will be able to deliver the required amprage for a longer period of time, before dropping below the recommended voltage level.

Here in central FL, I can get the T890 for $740 versus the T875 for $625. My gut feel is I may be able to get an additional 4-5 miles per charge based on the AH rating.

I wonder if the pack may also last longer as I would disharge the T890 pack by a lesser percent versus the 875 driving the same distance???

Aj, Trojan Battery company agrees with you. This chart from them shows more charge cycles in the life of the battery at a shallower discharge.

I paid $165 each for mine. That was the best price I could find. I do believe that the price difference is worth it if you want the best you can get for your cart and especially if you have perfomance upgrades that suck more juice.
