Default Batteries

Hello Everyone,

I will be putting new 8 volt batteries in my 48 volt 2002 cc ds. I have been searching and there are alot of options. Looking for the longest run time and it seems the Trojan ranger at 160min/56amps 204 ah would be best choice but they are expensive. Any suggestions, duracell at sams, crown, or stick with Trojan, thanks.

Just buy the battery with the most amp hour rating that you can afford. If are going on long journeys then spend the extra $ on Trojans, Crowns, or higher end of US Battery. Otherwise Deka's 165ah, or US Battery 170ah will save you $200 on a set if your driving habits are not discharging them beyond there capacity.

Do you base it on the amp hours at 56 amps and the minute rating is how long you can drive? Is this correct ?

Six volt batts on average have a lot more amp/ hr capacity in them then 8 volt batts , ( amp /hr capacity determines range ) my 48 volt pack have 260 amp/ hr (Crowns )where typical 8 volt batts have a top,end of 170 -195 amp/ hr , also the six volt batts will last longer ( life span )
Then 8 volt , the only disadvantage is approx. 120 ibs extra weight that you carry
Which is a trade off I'm willing to make for longer range and life span
