Hi Matt, for me it was about being fully in control of my battery management system. I did not like the "black box" approach of the "drop-in" batteries.
I wanted to know my system and be able to buy spares for and replace components. In the process I also saved some money, my 400Ah is significantly smaller and a little lighter than a drop in solution.
I was also concerned about the few high amp situations. Specifically the bow thruster that does draw about 400Amps at the battery. I know my wiring, fuses and relays are up for the load. From what I've read, I don't think that the major drop-in brands should be an issue either. But I decided to go my way.
I would caution that it is a challenging learning curve and more that enough bad advice out there to keep you confused and shake your confidence.
I hope that helps.
Thanks and regards, Daniel and Lori Carlson on sv BeBe, SM #387
