    I replaced my trolling motor batteries this fall and have two laying in my garage. What are you guys doing with yours? These are 6 years old. My last trip out they lasted 5 hours in wind and current.

    Scrap yard with give $0.10/lb. They might have a little life left if someone wants them, let me know. Otherwise I’ll drop them at the scrapper.

    Mine are hanging out under the work bench. I charge them once in a while and take them with sometimes for a back up. Only used a back up once, so I don’t know why I am doing it.

    I run a power converter to mine when I ice camp. And have power to anything I need

    Usually trade them for the core when replacing.

    I was fully prepared to get my $10 core rebate, but I found the boat dealership was $25 cheaper per battery than any other place, and they didn’t want the cores in exchange.

    $140 a piece for group 31’s vs $165 a piece anywhere else was a great deal.

    The group 31’s fit just fine and should give me a little more runtime.

    Some businesses here in Iowa have had them stolen because of the lead in them. Might be able to sell them for the lead. Not sure what they’re worth.

    Full Service Battery in Farmington gives the best price on cores. That’s assuming you don’t find a use for them and decide to let them go.

    However, Oreilly buys batteries as well and I believe they give a $10 gift card.

    They pay by the pound so you get a little more for deep cycles than car batteries.

    Last time I cleaned up around the farm and sold old batteries I averaged $22 a battery for 7 batteries, but scrap prices were higher then.
