Re: 6 Volt Batteries...

Try to compare the weight of the two. Battery AH claims are all over the place but, weight is pretty much an indication of the internal plate size. If they weigh the same, go for the cheaper one.

Re: 6 Volt Batteries...

I've always heard buy the cheaper ones first. After you have learned how to take care of them (trash a couple of sets), then invest in the more expensive batteries. Also the cheaper the battery, the more you need "instrumentation".

You might want to check with Sam's Clubs and/or Costco. Both were selling 6v deep cycle batteries at very good prices last I heard.
