I have a solar system; about five years ago, I bought a set of batteries. First I tried the marine deep cycle but they only last a year or so. At the same time I decided to get the 16 golf cart GC-2 Stowaway on a 24v system. Those stowaway batteries are still working.
Nevertheless, I decided to add more batteries to the system. I went to SAM’s Club where I got the stowaway GC-2 but they no longer had them (they were too good) and I had to buy the Intestate GC-2 from SAM’S Club. Even though they were more expensive, they turn out to be a bad choice. Those batteries hardly last a year. Last year I got two sets 8 GC-2 Interstate, and I already had to replace 2 batteries from those banks. On the other hand, from the 16 GC-2 Stowaway, which are about 5 years old, I just replaced one battery a month ago. The others stowaways are still alive and kicking. The bad thing is that they don’t sell the stowaway any longer and I replace it with an interstate GC-2. I hope my experience will help you decide on your system. By the way the interstate GC-2 is manufactured in Mexico. I wonder if it would make a difference if they were manufactured in the USA.
