Default batteries

i know this has been discussed a thousand times but here is another thread.

I am in process of buying new 8 volt batteries
I have a 700$ limit, Which where I am located narrows me down to not man battery companies

here is what is close to me

Trojan - 130.00 each
Us - 130.00 ea
Crown - 118.00 ea.
Supelex - 98.00 ea
Duracell - 119.00 each


So basically Trojan and Us batteries is out of my price range

Out of the 3 other which do you think would work best, or is there another brand I am missing

Location is Birmingham ,Al

Crown would be my choice, even if you include the Trojan & US in the mix. Trojan has become more difficult to work with “after the sale” if needed.

Crown batteries are great. Iíve had good success with Duracellís lasting many years too. Iíd also look into Powertron if you have them nearby. Iíve also seen Interstate batteries last 8+ years. (I say 8+ because theyíre still going!)

i run these brute forces and i have had great luck with them. (also have 8x 6volts)
http://www.bruteforce.com/index.php/...gba6v2000.html

everyone told me to steer clear of the cheaper ones and through my work i got these at 60 a piece.. i understand your looking for 8vs but i believe they have them also. would be worth checking out

EDIT
They have a location in Birmingham 205-730-9093

Default Re: batteries

I would go with Trojan but like you said its a little out of range. I would look at the weight and amp hour of the remaining three and go with the heaviest one with the best amp hour rating .

the more lead the better .

Crown makes an excellent battery. Which Crown battery are they quoting you at this price? The CR-150 or the CR-165?

That's high for a 150. My price on a Cr-150 is $101.95

For only $80 more than my budget I would buy the Trojans. Buy the best and only cry once.
