Trojan T-105 Batteries

From reading on the internet, many people seem to think that the Trojan T-105 battery offers the best bang for price/performance in a 6v.

What do people on this forum think? Thanks. j

I don't know how one would evaluate battery brands. I buy a battery and it lasts several years and then I buy another. I'm not keeping track of charge cycles or the dozens of other things that can affect battery life.
That given, I bought Trojan. Good web site, anyway.

Hi: jamie beers... I replaced our battery with a Trojan. In the cold coming down to Florida it did really well. We used the furnace constantly all night and it almost recharged itself the next day. Almost wondering if we have a charge wire in the truck harness!!! Alf

I have the Trojans now, and they do the job. Can't really say though whether they are any better than the ones Escape supplies, as they both worked fine.
