Re: Charging outboard battery onboard

The second option is indeed better for efficiency, but from ICE sources that's not so critical.

Watch out for high current flows when paralleling the two when voltage is different by more than say half a volt.

Best would be a user-adjustable DCDC charger like Sterling BB series.
