Amp hour rating is only one part. The life of the T105 is longer. Also due to different resistance in the batteries, the amount of current available and the voltage drop will be degraded. They do a 20Hr rate of 220 Ah and the T105 rates 20Hr rate of 225 Ah. But when you get to 5Hr ratings or the how many minutes @ 75 Amps, the cheaper batteries will fall down.

I'm sure the interstates will not last as long as the 105's, but they were on sale for $75 and the Trojans are $129 in my area. That is a price difference of $330. Assuming the Trojans will last me 5 years, that is $155 per year, if the interstates only last 3 years their cost will be $150 per year and if I luck up and get 5 years out of them it drops down to $90 per year. My decision was based off of cost and Interstates' reputation, I am not promoting any of them. The Trojans surely win the popularity contest ( deservingly) and I intend on taking very good care of my new Interstates, I am following Scotty's break in guide to the letter and will definately post my results on BGW if they fall too short of my expectations.

You can insure you get the longest useful life out of your batteries by installing and using a digital state of charge meter
