Hi I bought a AGMbattery for my Mini kota trolling motor. It's about 64 pound and I want to keep it in my SUV. My question is that if it is possible that I charge my battery from car lighter socket? or is there any automatic charger that I can connect it to car lighter?
thanks for your help
You need a proper 3 stage charger for your AGM or you will destroy it quickly. At 64 lbs it sound like it is a group 27 or 31 and this will be larger than your car battery so hooking up a cigarette lighter charge cord will leave you without a ride home AND a bad AGM battery. Plug it into a wall socket with a proper 3 stage charger.
Cam is correct on this one. You need a proper charger. Look for a 3 stage that has an AGM specific setting. Charging requires the profile of the charging regime to match the battery type. If you don't do that you just spent too much money on a battery you will quickly destroy.

Yes, it is type 27. I have bought already the AGM charger but my problem is the handling of battery. So it seems I should buy a folding hand cart instead!
Thank you very much for your help and have a good holidays!
