Trojan T105 s: price, Manufacture date

I have a line on two Trojan T105. 6 volt batteries and I was wondering if anyone knows what a good price is for those batteries. The store, batteries unlimited in Grand RapidsMichigan, is selling the batteries for $130each and the manufacturing date is June of this year. Does that sound acceptable for those of you who know?

For a new Trojan T105 that is about as cheap as I have seen them. You will not find many if any new T105's any cheaper. I think I remember that COSTCO was about the cheapest place to buy this battery.

Great, thanks!

Our local Costco did not carry the T105 Trojan batteries, so Costco does not seem to be an option at this time.
Is a manufactures date of June 2016 new enough?

I seem to remember reading somewhere that a new 6 V battery has to be "conditioned" before it should be used? I guess I could ask my sales rep, but I don't always have a great deal of faith in the technical knowledge of some sales persons.

Costco has never carried Trojans.
They do carry another brand of 6v golf cart batteries.

It seems like a good price, why not Google Trojans and see what price comes up. I brought four Trojans in Florida this spring for $105 apiece but most places I checked at home was more than that

You should be able to go to the Trojan website and learn about recommended installation and maintenance procedures.

Where did you purchase your Trojan batteries? I will be in the market later this fall.

I purchased my Trojans in Lake City FL at a place that sells golf carts. I'll look some more and see if I can come up with a name

I see one 12 miles from our Fort Myers location. In fact there are several locations in the Fort Myers area. Thanks for responding!
