Now, I am really confused.
over at the Offshore
Voyagers site they have been running a six month test on new AGM's that were supplied for fre by Life Line after their previous 3 sets turned up their heels in less than a year. Lifeline AGM Batteries Test Part 2
The recommendation from Life Line was that if you couldn't fully charge them after each discharge, you should equalise them once every month.
At the 6 month stage their new batteries
seem to be as happy as a pigs in mud with the monthly equalisation and not discharging below 85% of their capacity.
Wot to do??
I have always read that the perceived wisdom was that AGM's should NEVER be equalised. WTF
