Re: Battery life short? What to check?

All of the batteries in the same charging source should be of the same type. The reason is that AGMs and GEL and wet-cell batteries have different charging acceptance at different voltages. Mixing GEL and AGM (which is what you have done) will lead to shorter life of one or both.
