I don't know a whole lot about this and have not researched it, but it seems to me there might be a lot of folks out there with converter/chargers that are not up to par for the AGM batteries that owners might have installed without doing the proper homework. And also having to change to a more competent converter/charger when installing expensive AGM batteries could add significant expense to the battery update.
Anyone want to provide guidance and offer cautions??
What Tfryman said I'd my understanding also.
What size, voltage (12 or 6), and AH are you looking at?
Have been going back and forth on the 6v or 12v question. Also thinking of sacrificing one of the basement storage areas to add.more battery power.
