New Batteries...

Replaced my 4 year old batteries today...

I used three, US Battery's heavy Group-27's that are built with the same plate specs that they use in their Golf Cart battery line - thicker with special separators...

U.S. Battery-US 27dcxc marine

These batteries weight just under 60 lbs - lots of heavy plate material crammed into the GP27 size (12 inch long) case! These batteries are almost 10 lbs heavier that the GP27's being replaced!

As you can see from the specs, 205 Mins reserve @ 25 Amp load, and a true 105 Amp Hour rating...We now have about 315 total Amp Hrs of Deep Cycle capacity, cool...

US Battery's Plant is located in So-Cal, and they have dealers in the SW...I think their site lists em'...check em' out if you want one the heaviest GP-27 batteries around...
