House batteries

Would this be a good buy for my house battery bank? https://www.impactbattery.com/us2200.html

They have less AH's and cost more though, not as good a deal IMO.

Call around and find a big golf cart dealer. Trojan T-105s are the industry standard and you should be able to find them for a lot less than that with the cores included. At 68# each they ship for free...but I guarantee it ain't free. A big dealer gets a truckload a week.

Of course, I am in Florida and there are golf card dealers on every corner.

Costco in our area sells Interstate 6 volt golf cart batteries. I bought a set of their batteries back in 2014 for our coach and they are still going strong.

Apples and oranges. Trojan are AGM batteries, the others are flooded lead acid.

You can definitely do better than almost $200 for a quality flooded battery.

If your looking for 235 AH, here are a few other choices.

Trojan is a bit more $

Crown has some shipping charges that you need to add to the price.

T-105s are flooded cell lead acid. Trojan makes AGM (and lithium) but T-105s are the standard for 36 volt applications. I paid less than $135 each for 4.

The Trojan AGM is $400 for the lowest price I found,warranty and is 18 mos vs the 12 mos for the referenced battery.

I stopped buying a name years ago

Iíve seen the T105 AGM 6V for $229 with a 2 year warranty.

If the plan is to live with the new batteries for more than a year, AGM would be a wise choice, even if they arenít a name.

Here's a paper from Trojan about the US Battery product. Granted, it is a paper about their competition, but it's worth taking a look at regardless.

https://www.trojanbattery.com/therealfacts/

Use the information as you see fit as you make a decision.

Then again, the Trojan 6V-AGM has less AH/ usable capacity.

You could save some cash and get this comparable battery from Sams. Plenty of locations nationwide if you have issue on it when traveling.

https://www.samsclub.com/p/duracell-...elevance.rr0_1


Here’s on comparable to the size you were looking at.

I’m replacing mine this spring and going with 4 of the first link.

Not all company ratings of capacity are created equal. Have you done any research to see if real-world testing/reviews are available? Sometimes a slightly higher capacity end up being slightly lower when put to a real-world test.

If the batteries you're looking at have decent reviews that feel are legitimate, if the warranty and customer service look to be at a level you can live with, then go for it. If not, there are lots of options out there for 6v AGM batteries.
