Re: Ample Power vs Balmar vs Xantrex

On Mainesails advice we replaced our old Hitachi with an ElectroMax 100 ( last one where no sepentine belt is needed. and 614 Balmar Max regulator. The amount of amps generated by it at the lower rpm range was far superior to the Balmars. We purchased it with a temp sensor as well.

It amd the Mastervolt 3 stage charger were the last piece to complete our electrical system upgrade. Have noticed a much better greater amp charge into our 6 volt agms at normal operating ( 2700 rpm) and idle for our Yanmar 3GMF
