Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Charging AGM batteries

Lifeline recommends a float voltage setting of 26.6v for their AGM batteries. They can stay indefinitely at that voltage. Higher voltages will cook them--sooner or later. 

If yours are a different brand, check with the manufacturer.

I just came back to my boat after three months and found that my entire bank of 12 AGM batteries melted. I had left the 30A charger running. I am in the processing of replacing them with new AGM batteries (can't get anything else where I am in Grenada). I have an Amel 54 #98 with Dolphin 100A and 30A chargers. Would someone be able to advise which is the correct charge setting I should  use on these chargers for charging AGM batteries?
