Crown or USBattery?

Other than Mainesail's post re share of the market, has anyone had experience with Crown batteries (which appear to be made in Ohio)? I can get a Crown 235ah for $109 or the USBattery125XC (235ah) for $113 both in the Annapolis area. The closest Trojan price was $129....a decent hit on the wallet for four batteries.

Thanks for any input.

Why Worry?

Hmmm....

Let's see:

US Battery = 4 x 113 = $452 plus tax

Trojan T-105 = 4 x 129 = $516 plus tax

Difference = $64 plus tax

Why worry yourself further? Get the Trojans. You can't even get a decent dinner in Annapolis for $64.

Equates to about 4 boxes of adult koolaide. Makes you think twice.
