Hmm, that is intersting. No need for temp sensor? I don't know if I agree with that.

It is true that wets may be more suscptible to temperature differentiation-voltage than agm's... but agm's are too. If your agm is cold, you would increase the voltage and hot, decrease it. The cost of a temp gauge is nto that much anyways.
