Just had the wonderful experience of a battery
fire while I was absent from the yacht - and thankfully, the local team jumped on it before it took hold.
Pretty sure it was a fault within one of my four 150ah AGM batteries
that created the drama and have had it replaced under warranty.
Although Iím running a Ďsmart chargerí Pro Nautic 12-40P, the unit uses a voltage variability measurement to determine if overheating
is occurring - and switches itself off (presumably) - but doesnít issue an alarm
So that I can sleep easily at night, does anyone know of a temperature sensor system that can be applied to each battery
with maybe a Bluetooth warning to a smart phone
? Iíd even be happy with a simple audible Ďover tempí alarm
Iíve spent hours trolling the net but canít find something that sounds like a simple fix.
