Trojan Battery

I am actually in Fort Lauderdale and need to replace batteries. Any suggestion where to find a dealer in the area?
I looking at the 6V golf cart Trojan. I believe is the best buy now, am I wrong?
Thanks

Try East Coast Battery. Not sure if they can get Trojan batteries but I
have bought 6V gel cells from them at very good price. They also rebuilt
a starter and Bamar alternator for me. Quick turn around and good price.

Marine Batteries, Alternators, Starters, Rolls Batteries, Delta Batteries, AGM Batteries, Batteries AGM, High Amp Batteries Etc.

They are on 17th street just West of Andrews Avenue.

Iím not sure if East Coast Battery & Electric handle Trojanís (I know they have Rolls), but theyíre a great Alternator shop.

Or you can find an Interstate Battery dealer almost anywhere and get their Golf Cart batteries for about half the cost of Trojans. Ours only last about 7 or 8 years but we are satisfied with them. Chuck

Second the reccomendation for Interstate, if you do the math, cost vs return my "Guess" isthat the Interstate comes out ahead.
