Re: AGM batteries: Someone using them?


I never had lead acid or lead. When I bought my boat, and studied a bit, aside from cost, AGM was a no brainer. They lasted four years, and my use was very irregular. Last year, I upsized my battery bank to (7) 105Ah battery bank, AGM. I run a 10,000BTU air conditioner with it. Love it, no genset. Turns out that my engine is quieter than my single-cylinder genset too. Another advantage is that AGMs are sealed, zero maintenance and zero gas emmissions from what I have read. Good AGM bank and large alternator. More than enough for your refrigeration. Do the numbers. Good luck!
