Costco Car Batteries Summary

Kirkland Auto Batteries List
by Vaughn Aubuchon

Here is a summary of ALL the Kirkland auto and marine 12-volt batteries sold by Costco. This information comes straight from the Kirkland Car Battery Catalog found at Costco.

I created this page, because Costco offers no online information on Kirkland auto batteries. Not all batteries are available at all locations. The following availability is at the Santa Cruz, CA 95060 Costco.

Yellow = Battery was in stock at Santa Cruz, CA Costco store, on Sept. 11, 2013
Note: In Jan. 2013, the car batteries were moved from the MAIN warehouse, to the TIRE warehouse.

.
CATALOG FOOTNOTE DEFINITIONS:
(only C and D are shown in the catalog; I believe Costco forgot to add the others. They were present in previous catalog versions.)
A= Dual terminal
B= Height Adapter
C= Combination Auto and Stud Terminal
D= Deep Cycle
E= Group 65 Wing Adapter
F= Footprint Adapter
G= Puck Adapter
*= Dimensions may differ slightly from BCI dimensions

.
MY NOTES:

1. Prices are subject to change, as shown.
2. Some batteries may have to be specially ordered.
3. "Reserve Capacity" is equivalent to the old "Ampere Hours" designation.
4. BCI = Battery Council International
5. All the above data was copied from the U.S. Kirkland Battery Catalog, Rev.12, page iii.

.
CANADA
- There is a separate Kirkland Battery Catalog for CANADA, with all different part numbers, dimensions and electrical specifications. This page does NOT address Kirkland Auto Batteries sold in Canada.

Disclaimer: Why? This is exactly what I wanted to see, but Costco does NOT put the information online.
Although the author has taken care to assure accuracy, errors can and do occur. Prices change.
Please call or visit your local Costco, to determine if the battery you need is in stock at your location.
Thank you for your time.
