While Lithium (LiFePO4) batteries are getting the lion’s share of the press, most boats are delivered with Lead Acid batteries for starting and house service. This class covers the selection, installation, charging, and maintenance of Lead Acid batteries be they of Flooded, Gel Cell, or Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) construction. The class will focus on selecting the right batteries, sizing the right sized bank for your needs, and avoiding common mistakes that shorten battery life. Engine alternators, shore power chargers, and other sources will be covered with a focus on extending the life of your batteries and getting the most out of your investment
