I don't know of any scientific studies but my dealer turned my away from the Trojan's and they sell a bunch of Trojans.

Trojan was tops in golf cart batteries for years but I think they have been cutting cornors to keep profits high and stilll keep a competitive price.

I need to buy some new batteries for my 48 v precedent quickly. I do not want to make the conversion to the 8 volts as suggested in other threads.

What brands are recommended and what would be a good price? I live in the Atlanta area. I am looking for the best value related to performance.

Thanks for any help!

I guess only time will tell...I think grouper waited too long to look for batteries, it's almost dark

Maybe one of the sponsors can donate 4 different batteries to me, so I can find out which one is the best

The only place I could find had the trojans, so I went ahead and bought them. They were $199 each, so there you have it. Thx for the help

I guess if you need 'em "like now", you are gonna pay for 'em...It's okay grouper, they will last ya a while. Just don't forget they are only charged up about 75%, so put them on the charger and don't drive until the charger shuts off. Follow the break in procedures, because you don't wanna waste that $800.00 you just spent.

BTW: You just made shadow very happy!

Previous post mentioned Deka batteries. I priced 8 volt Deka's and Sam's batteries.
Deka is $195, and Sam's are $78 (+ or-).

I would be hard presse to believe that the Deka batteries are 2.5 times better, and will last 2.5 times longer than the Deka.

Have fun, Dave
