Certainly T-105s are the best but others on the forum have purchased 6 volt golf cart batteries at Sam's Club and Costco with good results as well. Check the specs and warranty. Be careful, you want 6 volt batteries as many golf carts today are using 8 volt batteries.

Sams Club sells two versions of a golf cart battery.

One is $85 and the other is a premium golf cart battery for $112. The $112 has 4 lbs more lead in them and slightly higher capacity. I think they will last longer.

Costco only sells the cheaper $85 one and doesn't have a premium version that has thicker plates.

The $112 is made in the same factory as the $155 interstate battery at my local batteries plus store and is identical to the interstate one.

The premium Sam's Club battery has 232 amp hours.

Please post your prices of your battery selection. If you can, please also post the weight of the batteries.

As stated: Premium Sams Club weight 67lbs each.

Duracell Ultra SLIGC115 weight 64 lbs (3 lbs less lead than my chosen battery)
