Golf cart batteries

Boatbum, can you please explain the phrase <em>they are one of the few</em>? I''ve read it several times now, and I can''t figure out what you mean.

I"m sure I''ve read a Don Casey article on this site in which he recommends an alternator that has an output roughly equal to 25% of your house bank capacity, i. e., a 25 amp alternator is sized right to charge 100 amps of battery capacity. I seem to remember him suggesting that this 25% charge rate helps extend battery life. Someone tell me if I''m mistaken here. At any rate, the article, or another one very much like it, could be found with a simple search.
