Re: Which AGM batteries are best

Here are some excellent links for some enlightening reading about a full time cruiser trying to use AGM batteries. I think John finally has it worked out but please DO read it all.. He eschews what I have been observing and trying to enlighten folks about for years. He does a GREAT job at nailing the "issues" and how to over come them.

These articles also display why I feel Lifeline battery is one of the best AGM makers out there. Justin has given John and Phyllis his full support and has NOT been bashful about having any of it posted on the internet so folks CAN get the best life out of Lifeline batteries..
