Trojan T-105's here. My first set lasted 8 years and my second set is now 3 years old and going strong.

11 years full timer.

I would (DID) got with DEKA but not AGM.... For the small amount of extra work that flooded wet cells require AGM's are just not worth the added cost.


Home is where I park it.

I had used Interstate for many years until I discovered that Wal Mart and Interstate were made by the same company so I tried Wal Mart at 1/3 less cost and they are still doing fine 3 years later. I also have one in the Smart car and the Mercedes, replaced after 17years!

I would go with Trojan as they are are very high quality battery and worth a few bucks more than other wet cells. The seller can say what ever they want but T 105's are wet cell not AGM's

I just replaced my batteries with 6 of the Trojan T-105’s. Paid about $136.00 each at one of the local golf cart stores…..be sure to buy a battery strap to pull the old ones and replacing the new….sure makes the whole process easier. They are heavy…. All the research I did….pointed to the Trojan as the best. Also agree with earlier post….they are wet-cell.

Skip all of these options and get the new Fullriver EGL series AGM. https://www.fullriverbattery.com/product/egl200-6/

This battery is brand new, has the longest warranty, will do twice the cycles, and is safe to discharge 80%

This is an incredible battery, get these or update to Lithium.
