    Default Where to buy a marine battery from Anchorage

    Where can I order/buy a marine battery with these specs from Anchorage?
    12V 100AH/5HR, 850 CCA or 12V 120AH/5HR, 1000 CCA
    The above specs were recommended for my new 4 stroke Tohatsu 50 outboard motor, my first electric start motor. There is a couple I found online from Sam's Club, an Optima BlueTop 12v starting battery 34MS and an Energizer Deep Cycle 29 HM from the same place. Both are specced close to the recommended specifications for my Tohatsu.
    Would any of you know of any other place I should check or call for a marine battery that doesn't cost too much with the above specs?
    Thanks.

    I second this one. If you have a military ID, ask for a discount too.

    The last time I was looking for a marine battery Sam Club had the best prices.

    If you have a old battery bring it with you, it will save you $10-15 in core charge no matter where you buy a battery.

    Costco used their marine batteries for the 20 years i had my bowpicker. Always started the volvo diesel no problem. Never any problems and they lasted a long time. I would just about live on the boat all summer.

    Forget the word 'marine'! Any old group 24 battery will start a little 50 HP. Save weight and money, too.

    I got an Interstate at Walmart for a good price in Kenai when I needed one.

    Interstate batteries on schoon st. Is cheapest place to buy batteries. There the dealer who supply all shops in town who sell Interstate. Since there the wear house!

    Batteries plus is a joke and over priced!

    Do I give my friends advice? Jesus, no. They wouldn't take advice from me. Nobody should take advice from me. I haven't got a clue about anything..

    Thank you all. I'm still looking for one that can be shipped out to me. Originally I had planned for my son to bring it out via AkAir but it needs to be in a manufacturers box with the word "nonspillable" on it. Interstate doesn't sell boxed batteries when I called them this am. Thanks again.

    Since I made the above post, several alleged battery experts have told me that Exide anything is a really bad idea...

    Ditto with ABS (Alaskan Battery Specialists) on Potter Drive
