Re: Old voltage regulator with an AGM battery
Thanks, Maine Sail.
I have 2 West Marine AGM batts (group 24) connected as one 12V bank.
I have a Morningstar SunSaver 10 controller.
The Morningstar site FAQ says that the controller cannot be programmed to omit the auto EQ; it's the cheapest one they make. I got 15 years out of the last one and turned around and got another one (same solar cells, those things last!). I guess I should have shopped around.
So, on my next trip out, I'll put the controller back to 'sealed' and it will charge at 14.1 w/o an EQ. My Honda puts out 14.55. How often would I need to charge them with that? Once a month? for an hour or two?
