Re: AGM batteries: Someone using them?

If you don't like running your engine to charge your batteries, the fast charge thing is huge. In the Sea of Cortez and Banderas Bay, where it is almost always cloud free, you can keep them charged just with solar panels, even running refrigeration and making ice, nav gear, lights, stereo, water makers, etc.

Their initial and replacement cost is horrible if you are retired and cruising. One of my pals is trying to figure out where he is going to come up with $6k for a new AGM battery bank.....
