Costco Auto Batteries List
The Kirkland brand has been
replaced by "Interstate" brand.


by Vaughn Aubuchon

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

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

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

Don't believe this data?
Just go to Google ---->
List of BCI Battery Group numbers

There are many online lists, including these -

www.jegs.com/ (easiest to read)
and
www.batteryequivalents.com/
and
www.batterysales.com/bci.cfm
and
www.batteryweb.com/bci.cfm
and
www.upsbatterycenter.com/

These lists were derived from the data from -
Battery Council International
.

.
Or, you can just go to Costco, and
photograph the page of their battery
book which has the BCI data on it.
That's what I did, for all the data from Costco.
The only problem was,
The Costco dimension data did not match the dimension data from BCI !

Many thanks to Ken Taylor for pointing out the data errors.

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.
