Re: battery availability at sam's club
Good timing as I'm looking to replace or reconfigure my house battery bank next week, (currently two Group 31 AGMs).
I am pretty sure I want to convert to 4ea 6V Wet Cell type batteries.
The pricing on the Duracell/Deka/East Penn GC2 sold at Sams Club is very attractive @ $85.00
- Do they sell them at Costco? I cant find them in the store or online at Costco (Not a member at Sams, but I am at Costco).
- The Duracell EGC2 adds another few Amp hrs @ $110 per, worth it or not?
- What about Trojan Batteries? The T-105 seems to run about $130-$140 from some sources online.
- Are the Trojans really worth the extra $55 each? I am guessing no.
4 ea Duracell GC2 (215 ah w/2) = $340
4 ea Duracell EGC2 (230 ah w/2) = $440
4 ea Trojan T-105 (225 ah w/2) = $560 ???
$220+/- difference for my application
Another option I am considering is 2 ea Trojan J-305H-AC (360 ah w/2) which would fit nicely just forward of my water heater but for two its would be about $700 for 360 ah or only 180 usable, not sure thats worth the convenience.
