Re: Are portable generators safe?

Almost all marine battery chargers made in the last five years can handle AGM, gel, and lead acid. I wouldn't consider this an issue.

But having a larger charger where the generator can't meet demand would be a waste.

As for safety, so long as you are cautious about the exhaust and have a carbon monoxide detector they are fine.
