Re: Are portable generators safe?

I'm thinking that a 100 AH bank of AGM's could provide the same output as a 200 AH bank of wet cells because of their lower resistance. In combination with a generator and a charger (Samlex) that can be used as a power supply you would be doing the work of a wet cell bank with half the weight and half the space. The gen/charger combination that you would use with a 200 AH bank would be just about right for a 100 AH AGM bank. Thanks. Steve S.
