Where to buy deep cycle batteries in Thailand or Langkawi

I am looking for some info on where to get a fair price on deep cycle batteries around Phuket, Thailand or in Langkawi, Malaysia. I have many other equipments to buy so I am looking for deep cycle batteries that will last 2 - 5 years. I know that it is short sighted but this is all I can afford for the moment. Some places go crazy and ask 500$ for a 100 amps.

Re: Where to buy deep cycle batteries in Thailand or Langkawi

About 6 months ago I asked the price for Trojan T105 at the Peninsular Yachts in Langkawi, it was about rm 800. Few years back the other on at RLYC wanted rm 1400 for a piece..
I reckon importer price should be around 700 to 800 rm. If you find cheaper please let me know.
Do not be tricked into paying Trojan price for a cheap Thai imitation of the T105, much less lead and much less quality.

Re: Where to buy deep cycle batteries in Thailand or Langkawi

you can buy powerbatt agm's out of KL (100 amp hr ) for 400-500RM (110-120 USD) a piece. About 100 usd to ship them to langkawi ( i shipped 6 for this price).

The local chandelrys get them from the same place and mark them up 20%.

These are good news for me.

I'll wait to be back in Langkawi to buy them.

Thanks

You might consider visiting a convenient golf club or resort with golf course, and ask where they source their buggy batteries..

I should mention that Peninsular Yachts did not have stock of the Trojan T105 last time I visited but they can order of course. Expect delivery time of few weeks. If you need the email of the manager there let me know.
Cheers
