Batteries & Charging

Opinions on Lifeline AGM batteries? Thier claim is they are the "next generation battery". Do the batteries really live up to that?

They are regarded as the best of the "no-maintenance" type batteries. Top of the line lead-acid batteries will give you more charge/discharge cycles but only if you maintain them. With my woefully bad reputation for maintenance, I opt for the no maintenance type.

Sorry I cannot cite the exact volume but Sail Magazine ran a comprehensive article about 18 months ago which did a balanced job of covering the strengths/weakenesses of most battery options one will find on the market today...back subscriptions are available by calling Sail at 1-800-362-8433
