Battery Prices
 
What's the going rate for batteries? 6 and 8 volt. Also, if I decide to go 48 volts, am I better off going with (8) 6 volt batteries or (6) 8 volt batteries?

What area are you in?

Place by me in Hammond, LA wanted $119 for US Batteries 8v. I went to another place in Kenner on my way to work and got Trojan T875s for $99 wholesale, retail was $109.

Wow, that seems pretty high.

Iím in Northern California and when I was looking there were certain batteries that just werenít available in my area. Transporting them is an issue, with their weight. I would have thought Trojans are easily available all over, but maybe youíre a distance from a distributor?

At that price, itís getting close to considering lithium.

From what I think Iíve read here, 8 6v would give you a longer run time, but youíre buying more batteries and have to find a place for the eighth one.

Wow! That's almost twice what they are in the Atlanta area.

I live in Queens, NY. I'm sure there has to be a few dealers in local area. I thought $1,269 was nuts.

that's insane - I get 6 8 volts for about $800 total with core swap

shop it out



If you are replacing batteries now - bite the bullet and go 48 volt swap. ScottyB will set you up. I'm telling you you won't regret it... you may however regret buying 6 6 volts when you decide to upgrade to 48 in a few months.

There is no stopping this addiction buddy... at least it's not crack :lhmo::help::thumbup:

I agree about the addiction, itís probably worse than crack lol!!
I want to go 48, but that means I canít even use the cart until I upgrade the controller,solenoid,F&R switch and cables. Thatís a big chunk of change to lay out. I just bought rims and tires and did a lift kit, Iíll be into this thing for over 2K. Have to put some serious thought into this one
