Sam's Club 6 volt golf cart batteries

Does anyone know how many amp hours are in the $70 Sam's Club 6 volt golf cart batteries? I bought them in Phoenix March 2012. Thanks!

In my area, Sam's Club is selling the Duracell GC2 6volt battery for $84. It is rated at 215 AH @ the 20 hour rate.

What battery they were selling in Arizona in 2012, for $70, I have no idea.

My memory is fading, it was probably $79.96 or $80, not $70 and there has been a $4 price increase. Thanks guys!

The competition makes a couple different GC2 amp-hour ratings too.

The difference is the amount of lead plate inside - less lead reduces the cost & weight, but also reduces the amp-hour rating.

The Interstate GC-2's are 232 but that's a pretty small difference in the schema of things!

I just got a price on Trojan 105's. They were 106. Does an one think that is worth it over the Sam's batteries?

My last set of 4 Sams Club batteries lasted 9 years with good maintainence and still were going good when I bought 4 more a year ago because we were going to boondock for 5 weeks in a area that doesn't sell anything cheap.

I had the T-106s (16 of them) for about 9 years. Finally they got to the place where they were not holding a charge longer than a day of low power use boondocking. Replaced with the less expensive Deka/East Penn manufactured GC-15 ones from Sam's (Labeled as Duracell EGC2).

So far so good. They are every bit as good as the Trojans were when new. I believe the weight is about the same too, which is an indication of how much lead they contain.

I have no complaints with any battery manufactured by Deka/East Penn. Also have four heavy duty engine start batteries by Deka. They replaced Interstate batteries that gave up the ghost after only three years.
