Yeeees Auzzie, you called?

Charge the battery by itself. It acts as a giant capacitor and will absorb SOME power/voltage surges.

GTS

Your operative words there are "topped off", "converted ice-box refrigerator" ( i.e. fairly small ) and "constant tradewinds".

It behooves everyone considering renewable energy to "consider...

thanks for the links. Mine eyes hathed glazeth over well even before I got to the "pitch-catch mode shear wave velocity" part. ( That's just after the "creeping wave" bit in...

OK, points noted. The dielectric shields are I believe primarily for the prevention of shorts, hence need for the dielectric. Now once the hydrogen passed the shield, then what? It doesn't get...

Rob and Bopeep

fortunately hydrogen from the over-charging is the lightest gas out there, twice lighter than helium even. So, as long as there are no domed ceilings or fixtures below or inside...

Lexx, that recondition mode looks so much better for selling the units than "equalizing mode" would. Equalizing smells of taxing or transferring wealth from the 99%rs to the 1%rs and I know I lose...

Lexx

the equalizing charge ampacity is the amperage needed to bring the batteries into a reasonably brisk bubbling stage. This usually means a charging voltage above 14-15V, ergo a lot of current...

Rob

with a below-deck genset there is not that much noise, only the water splashing out of the wet exhaust. Some of the newer gas on-deck ones are also extremely quiet. But I hear you... high...

Fine Lexx, good on the Armstrong bilge pumps too. The idea of separating battery systems is very sound as it is too easy to have a failure in one take down the whole system. I'd almost add more...

Lexx, Rob, Bopsie ( poetic licentiousness, ok? )

Further thought is the 25A charger will be too wimpy to equalize the new 500aH battery set-up. Rather go for a 50-60A unit that will match that...

Hi Lexx and Haiqu

A lot of enthusiam there in your discussion and that is good. But now a quick shower of rain on the parade to temper the heat. Though I do not want to "rain on the parade" do...
