Is absorption necessary?

If you charge at 5% you will reach the voltage cutoff at about 100% SOC and can go dire to the float stage. Thanks.

Re: Minn Kota Endura C2 30 $99

I would like to know the amps at the various speeds so I can figure out how long the 35 AH battery will last. The Arizona Wind & Sun website gives the specs on the Universal 35AH battery i.e. how...

Re: Minn Kota Endura C2 30 $99

Since I can't seem to find the motor voltages at various speed settings for the Endura C30 I would like to post a logical(?) approach, At full speed - #5- it is 12 volts and draws 30 amps max.; At #4...

Re: Minn Kota Endura C2 30 $99

I bought my Endura C30 on the WalMart website for $99.00. The real incentive was a shipping cost of 97 cents. Unbelieveable! Sometimes dreams do come true.

Re: Minn Kota Endura C2 30 $99

I usually run the motor at #3 on the speed control which draws, if my memory serves me, about 8 amps. This should be good for an hour or two of runtime. Usually dinghy rides are short and I can go...

Re: Minn Kota Endura C2 30 $99

I've been using the C30 on my inflatable for several months to get to my mooring and it has done fine. Am using a 35 AH U1 AGM battery. It's light weight (23#?) and and there's no acid to spill. Will...

Shades of Boeing

I was going to watch my portable 9" TV on the boat when I noticed that the cover over the rechargeable battery pack had warped and popped open. The LIPO battery pack had expanded from the Florida...

Re: 12V Connectors

You could try the Posi-Lock butt connecters since they are reuseable. They are like Norseman fittings so they can be taken apart and reused without having to cut the conductor like crimped fittings....

Re: Question about six volt GC batteries

One more observation. Busbars in a simple battery installation wouild complicate things but in complex installation they would simplify things. The objective is the same in both cases. Thanks.

Re: Question about six volt GC batteries

Re: Question about six volt GC batteries

Thanks for the info on the T-105. However it confirms that the T-105 is not available with the #6 connector. The previous post mentions the clamp-on connector with a stud. Unfortunately you lose the...

Question about six volt GC batteries

Does anybody know if there is a six volt GC battery that is available with separate auto post and stud terminals? They are called "marine" terminals. It is much easier to make connections when the...

Re: Proper way to tap into 12VDC wire?

Re: Proper way to tap into 12VDC wire?

You could try a Posi-Lock connnecter (Posi-Lock(R) - The Best Connectors You'll Ever Use! (http://www.posi-lock.com)). They have one that can be used to tap into a line. Thanks. Steve S.

Re: Batteries - Replacement

No matter what batteries you use if they are not properly recharged they will die a slow death from sulfation. If you are on a mooring you absolutely need a solar panel and charge controller to...

Re: Battery Bank – Parallel or Series

One thing to add to this scenario is that all the jumper cables have to be the same length. Thanks. Steve S.

Re: Charging time and charger output

I don't see a conflict here. From Noco's website their 3.6 amp charger will take 17.5 hours to fully charge a 100 AH 12v battery @ 50% DOD. Their 7.2 amp charger takes 12.5 hours. The charger with...

Re: Charging time and charger output

Charging time and charger output

It would appear that battery charging times are a function of the square root of the ratio of the charger output. In other words doubling the output does not cut charging time in half. It only cuts...

Re: Are portable generators safe?

An estimate of potential demand is one KWH to two KWH per day for several days in a row. Given cloudy weather you would need a huge battery bank if you are relying on solar only. It seems to me that...
