We fitted 12 6 volt lead acid golf cart type batteries from west marine in the us in July 2009. Still going well.
We have a 350 watt super wind generator and two 130watt solar panels.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Batteries - What type house batteries to use & what voltage charge from Solar/Wind?
Our 8 house batteries (2001 SM) have packed in hence time to replace them all. Before going ahead and purchasing new ones this week we would be most interested in finding out what type other Amel Owners are using for house batteries? Are you using Lead Acid / Gel / AGM / Lithium / Other?
Also what charge voltage are your Solar/wind generators (if you have these) putting into the various types of batteries?
Thanks in advance
