    They are the only kind I go with after trying others that just did not last as long. They sell at a price that is about $150 US. Been that way for a while. 7,000RD/47.5= $147.37 US

    I have Interstate, and like them so far. Plus Interstate has proven to be very good at honoring guarantees. (I have Interstate gel batteries in my vehicles as well)

    Interstate makes the best car batteries and I buy them when I can for cars. I suspect they will be good for deep cycle batteries but have no experience there.

    I have always gone with Trojans, but I always had to top them off occasionally. I've got a year with the Interstates, and have only topped them off once, and very little water at that.

    I don't know if that indicates anything, but I'm a happy camper.


    Edit: They were $120 each.

    Default Depend where they are

    If they are like in our case in the maids room I would go with gel batteries, cost a bit more but no maintenance required and mine are 5 years already and still all good.

    My car batteries are gel, my inverter batteries are not.

    Their store is on the corner of Churchill and Calle Luis F. Thomen. A little south of the Metro bus Station.
