I like to have your opinion to validate my chose. We are going to pre-retire in September on our Lagoon
410 and live onboard for 6 to 8 mouth at the time and leave the boat
or in the Caribbean
island the rest of the year.
-The houses batteries
2 regular acid 8D 205 ah batteries
need to be replaced and I am adding solar
panel to the one already on board 240 watts.
Option 1 : 2x 8D victron gel of 265 ah for total of 530 ah
Option 2 : 3x 8D victron amg of 220 ah total of 660 ah
Should we sacrifice ah to prefer gel batteries?
Any positive or negative comments about victron batteries?
-Solar panel we have room to add 2 more panel on the hardtop and projets is to add two longi 450watts mono for a total of 1140 watts
Is it to much watts, can it damage the battery bank in perfect condition?
Is it better to have one solar
control for each solar panel?
When you leave the boat
for few mouth’s period do you leave the the solar panel charge on?
Any positive or negative comments about longi panel?
