"The sams club batteries are the same as deka. "

Do not know if they are or not. Only know that by the time I paid for the membership ther would not be enough savings to cofer the additional miles to get to Sam's Club and the Deka store assistant helped me install so I'm very happy with the DEKA store.. and the DEKA batteries.


Home is where I park it.

They are the same batteries. Nothing wrong with getting them elsewhere; I got them at Sam's Club because they were the only place open on Saturday when I went to buy them. They seem great so far.

I'm not in Sam's Club as often as Costco. But I've noted the in Costco, different regions of the country may have different suppliers of GC2's. Perhaps Sam's Club is that way too?

And OP, only other item I'll add, at least until you quality what your objective's for Best is to you[emoticon]!

If you boon dock/dry camp often, the fastest recharging (Shore Power/Generator/Solar/Wind) batteries will be:
1) Lithium
2) AGM (Lifeline's are ~20% faster at recharging - if you have a charging system that can maximize power in Bulk mode. We have X's 4 Lifeline L16's - and wish our Magnum MS2812 could produce more power for Bulk, as Lifelne's, especially this size bank, can handle just about anything you can toss at them[emoticon]!)
3) Conventional Wet

So if one of your criteria's is for faster re-charge, their's some Hmmm info for you[emoticon]!

Best to you, and all,
Smitty

Duracell AGM battery maker


Last week I replaced both my 6 volt house batteries with the Sam's club GC2 AGM batteries. They were $179 each with an $18 core charge.

Got rid of the one gallon distilled water container and turkey baster I had to carry along all the time. Good riddance. Figured it was worth the extra money to have maintenance free batteries.

First you need to take pictures of the existing batteries and how they are connected before you disconnect them.

Second you need to measure the physical size of the existing batteries to make sure the new ones will fit.

Are you going to do the installation yourself or have it done?
