Re: Battery question
 
according to your chart they are 3.1% above standard
20 amp hour rate = 232 or 7hrs better

This is a prime example of apples being compared to Oranges.

The picture Mrjonman posted in Post# 15 clearly states 107 minutes @ 75A
The picture you posted in Post# 31 is a battery that has 122 minutes @ 75A
(Read the line above the AH rating.)

Here is the one shown in Post# 15.

Sam's Club sells at least three different batteries they call GC2 (which is a BCI catagory) plus an EGC2 and some AGM types.

Read the labels carefully!!!!!

When buying golf cart batteries from anywhere, you need to read carefully. :mrgreen:

IE: In the Continental 2GC-110 battery specs you posted earlier, the CM@75A (Capacity Minutes at 75A) given is 105 Minutes and the CAH20HR (Capacity Amp-Hours at 20 Hour Rate) is 225AH.

That waves all sorts of red flags at me since a battery with a CM@75A of 105 Minutes ought to have a CM 20HR in approximately the 205AH-210AH range and a battery with a CM 20HR of 225AH ought to have a CM@75A in approximately the 120-125 Minutes range.

I'm sure one of the two specs is wrong, but I don't know which one it is, so I don't know if that is a low price for a standard grade battery or a high price for a economy grade battery.

That isn't a bad price for a 208AH battery and there really isn't anything wrong with them.
They just won't have quite as much run time as a 225AH battery and they won't last quite as long, but they are considerably cheaper, so you'll break even or might even be a little ahead in total lifetime cost.

If these are for the Marathon you are talking about in the other thread, they should be fine.

Re: Battery question
 
Ok so I broke down and put a battery in it for the time being.....it runs.

My question is, if it's hooked up charging like shown, is it charging all 3 batteries? Any idea on run time? I examined the battery trays, and they are pretty rusted as well, seem to be holding still but don't know how much.

Oh and she ain't much for speed!

Re: Battery question

Your two original battery's shown appear to be 12V battery's.
