Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] My batteries are dying.
Hi Steve;toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Glad you figured out your issue and it was a simple solution.
Olivier did recommended not to use both chargers together when he did our survey. I know some do use both together, but we do not. We do have have a 100 A and a 40 A and we find the 100A sufficient for charging. My recommendation would be to select the biggest charger that your generator can handle. Use this for when you are on the generator and the smaller one when plugged in. With 400A 24V bank you could use 60-80A charger,if your generator and wiring allows.
The temperature sensors for the battery bank is a great safety item and also a worth while investment to maximize the life of your batteries. We see fluctuations of up to 0.4V during the different charging cycles depending on the battery compartment temperature.
As far as audible alarms check out Borel manufacturing. http://www.borelmfg.com.
