      I think G is for Gel, not golf cart . The same form factor in AGM would be called 8A27. MrSolar.com has 8G27s for $203 each. Ask them if they can get them

        I think "G" is for Gel, not "golf cart". The same form factor in AGM
        would be called 8A27.

        MrSolar.com has 8G27s for $203 each. Ask them if they can get them with
        "flag terminals". Terminal types are shown on page 2 of
        www.mkbattery.com/images/MK_Gel_v4_web.pdf
