Holy cow!!!!!! Shipping lead gets expensive....!!! I would have to look up my last purchase of Trojan L-16's but I know I pay well below $300.00 each. For Trojan's the North East USA is very expensive compared to places such as Florida.... I would suspect in Florida L-16's run in the low 200's

Deka/East Penn broke into Sam's Club back in the summer of 2011. About 50% of the stores have the Deka/East Penn product. These are the same identical batteries as the Deka brand as well as the West Marine brand.

I wrote about some specifics here: Battery Buyers = Good News

Re: Costco vs Trojan Batteries

Sorry that's dc2. And they have bad reviews online. Is it possible that the Dekka thing is state by state?

You show you are in Maine and if you are Augusta, Bangor and Scarborough Sam's all have the Deka/Duracell EGC2 and the GC2...

Please note these are July 2012 prices:

Sam's / Duracell GC2 = Deka Pro-Master GC10 = 215Ah




Sam's / Duracell EGC2 = Deka Pro-Master GC15 = 230Ah
