Mixing AGM and wet cell batteries

The charging requirements of the two batteries are very different. The charge, acceptance, and float of these two would almost require two sepearate charging systems. A charger optimized for the wet cell will be too high voltage for the AGM shortening it''s life, and one optimized for the AGM won''t keep the wet cell up to optimum charge, shortening it''s life.
