6v battery install

Mounted some 6v batteries on my WA2313 today. Just enough room for two GC2 boxes.

Nice install. I too added dual 6v batteries. I actually got them at sam's club for $89 each. So far they have out done my previous interstate 6v batteries.

Thanks. I paid $84 at Costco a couple weeks ago. 208ah I think. Interstates. When did you buy at SAMs and what ah?

That's a great deal. Are they labeled Interstate, Energizer or Duracell? The Costco Interstate batteries don't list specs but I'm assuming they are 208ah based upon their weight. Any other way to tell?

They are labeled energizer. The new batteries at Costco are crap. The recently switched brands and no one in the automotive department knew what AH each battery was. They also told me the new batteries are not the same as the old ones

I wouldn't listen to the employees. My Interstates from Costco are also made in Mexico and have the same one piece vent cap as your Energizers. Mine weight 63lbs. Pretty sure manufacturer and quality is the same, just different capacity.

The Sams in Kansas City don't carry item no. 263769 which is the 232ah battery. Only the 208ah which is item no. 1194

I spoke with Interstate batteries in Kansas City. They told me that they relabel their GC2-RD batteries for Costco. The GC2-RD are 208ah and the same as the 208ah Energizer sold at Sams.

Spec is 62.2 lbs and I weighted mine on the bathroom scale at 62.7 lbs.

I wouldn't believe interstate telling you the truth about energizer batteries.

Would you be so kind as to elaborate on the locking bands? Did you buy them? If so, where?
