Re: Battery Buyers = Good News

It's been a few months, I assume Sam's Club is still stocking these? I plan to get a Group 24 dual purpose starter and a Group 27 Deep Cycle House for my 1GM10.

How do I identify if they are the Deka / East Penn /Duracell batteries?

copacabana Mainsail, do you know if the 12v Johnson Control batteries (red boxes) are any good? You mention these batteries in the first post of this thread. I've found them here in Brazil (EXPENSIVE, like everything else in Brazil!) and they claim to be deep-cycle batteries with a 2-year warranty. The other option is a so-called "marine" battery made by Moura which is more expensive and has a 1-year warranty. I'm just about to buy new house batteries and I'd like to get the best value. Thanks in advance.

Sorry but he was either not in the loop or lying. They just inked this deal about two months ago and have a HUGE inventory of Deka/Duracels here in the North East, and in many parts of the country, as reported by many who've bought them since I posted this. I've probably installed close to two dozen of them at this point...

I used to work at the largest wholesale bakery in Houston, TX. The round top and sandwich bread came down the conveyor through the slicer and went into what ever bags were called for for that order. Name brand, store brand, generic, all were the same bread in those different bags sold at different prices. There were some specialty products that we made for only one customer but not many.



Have FUN!

No they are not the same, they used to be decent batteries but the new ones, as of a few months ago, are dual purpose, not deep cycle. On top of that the Ah rating is rated at a 1A draw which is NOT how the industry rates deep cycle batteries.
