Re: AGM batteries

I used to have the starting battery echo charged off the house bank like Bill mentioned, but with the ACR I installed it acts like an isolator and combiner so that wasnt necessary

Peronally I dont like mixing types of batteries, but because the wets take about the same bulk charge as AGM and its the starter battery whoich woint be discharged much, it may be ok but I am not an expert. Will the AGM be held back by the wet cell charge acceptance?
