SAMs AGM Batteries

Thinking of replacing my 6 6volt batteries with 6 12 volt AGM Duracel batteries from Sam's. They give 18 months warranty vs 12 MO, and just $25 more each. Any input on these Duracell AGMs appreciated.

I just installed two Sam's Club 6 volt GC2 AGM batteries. $179 each plus $18 core charge.

Make sure you measure the old batteries physical size and compare that to the new batteries physical size.

And, of course, take pictures before you disconnect anything.

Think about replacing your 6, 6V batteries with 6, 6V deep cycle batteries. Youíll be even happier if you opt for the Trojan T-105ís, or similar, over the discount house option. Plenty of information is available to explain why.

My experience was the 12v AGM's are short lived. I agree, 6v Trojan T-105's will easily outlast the AGM's. I found Torjan T-105s on eBay for $125 each and then he shipped them to a golf cart shop near me.
You can get a watering kit for the Trojans to make servicing easier.

My Sams AGMs lasted about 3 yrs before they started degrading. Moving to litium next month.
