I have seen a lot of recommendations for the Duracell AGM batteries from Sam's. However, has anybody run one of these and if so, has it worked out well? This would be going in my ski boat, replacing a 5 year old Interstate. Thanks in advance!

Are you guys talking about the AGMs, or the non AGM Duracell’s he linked? I never hear much about the non AGM Duracells.

I am limited on space and did not see a Group 24 AGM at Sam's unfortunately.

The one I linked is $80 but is a flooded battery, but they do not list a reserve capacity on the battery which worries me a bit.
They do have a Group 34 AGM battery for $120, pretty much identical case size so it would fit the boat - not sure if there is any gain in going to a group 34 though?

Is it stupid to worry about the reserve capacity not being listed? I assume on all batteries there is somewhat of a reserve capacity. This is a single battery boat, so do not want to make the wrong move.

Decided to stick with the Duracell 24MSHO battery. $89 out the door, manufacturer sticker is 7/20. I will report back here if I have any issues with the battery.

Please stay far away from the non AGM batteries.

One week in and it leaked battery acid all over the place. Unfortunately it was in my vehicle when this happened and destroyed the floor mat and part of the carpet. All while sitting next to my old Interstate, which is still full and non-leaking.

Think you got a bad one which happens. Run 2 27’s on my TM and just bought a Duracell 27DP as my cranker and it has been great.

I’ve been using the Duracell 27’s and they work fine as long as you maintain them. You can get a bad battery from any manufacturer. My last bad battery was an Interstate 27 group that lasted 13 months before it would take a charge. The dealer said it was a bad cell just 1 month past the warranty coverage.

Maybe it was just a bad battery, but 8 days and leaking 1/4 of the acid out is absolutely unacceptable. I have reached out to both Duracell and East Penn who makes them regarding the incident.
I will be going to Sam’s Club Monday morning regarding the battery as clearly it will be replaced under warranty, just not sure I want to put my faith in another one.
