Trojan Six Volt

What would be considered to be a good buy for four new Trojan T105 batteries?

Can they be found under 100$

Re: Trojan six volt

not in this century. when i looked two years ago they were around $140 each. i did get a cheaper price from a guy who sells them to golf courses but it was for a six pack - apparently golf carts use six of them.

of course with the canadian dollar worth more than the greenback it might be less in your currency...

Re: Trojan Six Volt

Expect to pay $150 -$170 for T105's, a shade more for the RE models. There is some dealer markup but not a lot so discounts are limited.

Re: Trojan Six Volt

I just moved my boat from Ontario to the St John River in north Florida, I can buy T105's locally there for 99.98 US#, I guess that is a good deal, here in Canada they run around the 145.00 mark. I can buy US Battery 2200 for 125.00.

They come from a Golf Cart Company and will only take pickup orders, no shipping however I did think the price was attractive, I just wanted to confirm the US experience on this product.

Thanks from me also, we have 6 big x 6V Trojans on board in two separate banks and the electrical guy working on our boat tells us he thinks a couple in one bank may need replacing soon and IMO probably we should consider replacing the entire bank as a whole.
