Re: Realistic expectations for my house batteries
My experience with AGMs (now 9 years old) is similar to chefís. Because of the charge retention, that means you donít have to remove them over the winter or periodically charge them during an extended haul-out. Since these things are heavy (~66 lbs for each of my 5 batteries) so leaving them in place is a real advantage over liquid cells.
Not so much these days where most people have at least some kind of solar charging
