Re: AGM Battery Upgrade and Charger

I have a Westerbeke 30 (1979) 41-9 ... I'll need to research the output of my alternator. I usually have to run the engine for about 20 minutes at a minimum on my final approach. So, hopefully that will top them off. I guess I'll just have to experiment.

I do have a 5w trickle solar charger ... not sure if that is sufficient or if it needs a controller.
