[Amel Yacht Owners] Re: House Battery Balancing and Farewell for 2018
Yes that's when you have them all interconnected.
Our batteries aren't interconnected, we have a balancer for each set of 4 x 6V batteries.
“To effectively maintain equal charging of series connected batteries you need a battery balancer for each set.”
The instructions show one balancer for the entire set of batteries.
With best regards,

To effectively maintain equal charging of series connected batteries you need a battery balancer for each set.
We have 3 paralleled sets of 4 x 6V AGM batteries in series.
We don't have this Victron balancer, its specifically for 2 x 12 V batteries.
Our balancers are designed for 4 batteries in series.
We too had the unequal charging issue which resulted in batteries being replaced under warranty 2 years ago.
Since installing the balancers we have had no issues at all.
