Re: would you buy used AGMs?

I have no direct experience with marine AGM (I do have them on my Prius accessory battiries), so take my advice with a huge grain of salt (preferably Lead Sulfate lol): I've read that AGMs require a more sophisticated charger system, so you should factor that into your overall cost if your charger does not meet AGM requirements. As for what those requirements are, you will need to research it or wait for more expertise here.
