ET use is a pretty low stress application. Just about any good quality
golf car battery is fine. I like Trojan and US Battery (Interstate) for
my road EVs, and I avoid Exide; but a friend of mine does fine with
Exides in his ET.
I hear the generic Sam's Club batteries, which used to be Trojans, are
now made by GNB. I have no experience with these.
Golf car batteries are a mass produced commodity and competition keeps
the price fairly reasonable. Going price varies from $45 to $55 each.
Trojans often cost a little more.
