Hi All,

Battery prices from Sam's Club

G29 125 AH $79.42
G27 115AH $68.87
Golf Cart 6V 220AH $71.28

Based on dual batteries this equates to:

G 29....@....250 amp/hr = $0.63 per amp hour
G 27....@....230 amp/hr = $0.60 per amp hour
Golf Cart @ 220 amp/hr = $0.65 per amp hour

Before anyone does the "old saw" that six volt batteries last longer I'll point out that my last set of 12 volt batteries are six years old and still going strong. The "secret"? A 30 watt solar system with an old style charge controller.

I'll also point out that the dual G 29 set has 12% more amp hour capacity than the "twin" six volt set.

Don

We also use the Trojan T-105 battery (six) in our golf cart. The live cycle is very long. The last set before ones in cart now were run close to eight years and had life yet. Ones in cart now are six years old and show no signs of slow down or problems. We use a automatic charger system, you plug in power cable and as soon as batteries are full it shuts off power. I can run the golf cart four to six weeks on a charge. I use it around our home to move everything on our 10 acres of land. I have looked on line at other batteries and found this one is best one for the job. Prices are a little high but it works. I understand the BatteryLifeSaver made in Clearwater, FL works very well.

Our house batteries in MH are two 8A8D AGM rated at 245 AH for total of 490 AH. The Trojan T-105 are a little to small for our needs. No water in the 8A8D cells to replace.
