9.2 doesn't sound good...might be why they were given away? Hopefully they still have some life in them. I just bought a 100ah AGM battery this week to go in my camper, got it on Amazon for $160, so they are not too expensive, especially when compared to lithium batteries of the same capacity. If the batteries are just sitting and not being used, you can get a battery minder for $30 (also on amazon) that will monitor the battery and trickle charge it while not in use, then just use a regular charger to charge them or solar if you are planning on using panels to charge the batteries during the day when out camping.
