New Battery State of Charge

How concerned should I be with the state of charge on new batteries. Looking at (2) 6v batteries from Costco and the manufacture date is October 2017...so 2 months old.

I doubt they charge all their batteries on the shelve. How old is too old and does the state of charge matter much when buying new?

Also will (2) 6v golf cart batteries fit on my Jayflight 26bhs?

I don't think you will find a battery that is much newer, they come charged from the factory but will drop off after sitting. Just hook them up and run your converter or hook up a trickle charger.

2 months is great ... buy them.. IIRC the shelf life is 6 months...

you can always have them load test them before you buy them... the Costco by me has them but they are from March of 17... so I am going to wait till they get some newer ones..

Two months is "fresh baked", batteries are not like ordering dinner at restaurant.
