Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: AGM battery equalisation
Batteries from time to time should be equalized and most battery chargers can do this.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Another way to stop the need for this so often is to have every battery in a bank connected with the same thickness and length of cable to the charger cable, regardless if the cable need to be that long and connect all to a centralized buzz bar. This is to have the same resistance across all the batteries in the same bank.
However as mentioned lead acid, gel, AGM all use acid and have a maximum number of charge cycles. Yet after just 20 to 30 % of the maximum cycles (usually around 1 year) they will be less than 50% efficient at holding charge.
For batteries to last 5 to 10 years you would need to look at alternatives like lithium.
