Only stipulation I will add is that for some installs, agms seem a better choice. THis is where the batteries may not set up straight or are difficult to get to for maintenance. But for cruisers, who rarely get their batts back up too 100% soc, agms are an awfully expensive experiment in dissapointment.


AGM batts have numerous benefits, they really do, but price & cycle life are not two of them..
