Re: AGM Battery Upgrade and Charger

A daily 14 ah load is nothing, really. You don't need AGMs for that sort of load.

For those considering AGMs, please be aware that they need complete charging on a regular basis. I still see little need to spend that extra $$ for them given the issues they have.
