Re: Are portable generators safe?

I wonder if Nigel is taking into account the drain vs. the solar charging process?

I understand what was writtent there, about the effect on the life span... but if I am slowly draining more than the charging is making up for, it is worse to be out of power than to theoretically have hundreds more days of battery life.

Dead batteries are dead. That is not good at all.

All of the 2 banks were AGMs. I wonder if that makes any difference.
