Re: 12 volt AGM batts. worth it ?
I use a 12V 50Ah AGM as a "reserve bank" on my boat. It's a Diehard "wheelchair" battery. The "main bank" is two 6V flooded golf cart batteries. The AGM has enough power to start the 2GM20 and hardly loses any voltage if the boat has been sitting "unloved" for a couple-three of months. It's nice to know that even if the main bank fails for some reason, the AGM reserve should get the engine running without a problem.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
