That's where I bought my Fullriver DC-400 6V AGMs last March. Even with shipping all the way up to Massachusetts, they were relatively inexpensive.

The best price I have found for flooded six volt batteries is NAPA. They sell DEKA batteries and in use they have held up as well as the trojans they are in parallel with.
