Re: Boiling Batteries

Many thanks for all the replies!

With regards the the Multimeter, how 'big' should I be looking for? I would assume that meters maxing out at 400A would suffice, but please correct me if I should opt from something slightly larger.

I've read a little bit more regarding my battery charger and there seems to be quite a few horror stories due to heat generated from overcharging. Therefore I've decided to update to a modern smart charger. Presently, I am considering the ProNautic 1220P.

With regards to a shunt and permanent display, one of my future projects is installing a battery monitor.
