I keep hearing that claim and it is true that LIFELINE suggests a much faster Initial charge..

But answer this. I have a Progressive Dynamics 9180 with charge wizard. Other identical Converters would be the 9280 or 4680

Exactly HOW Much faster will AGM's charge?

(Answer: Without a converter upgrade. and I might add that's as big as they get.. NOT ONE BIT faster.. not at all. The converter is the limiting factor (And the wires)

So there goes that claim
With Solar.. Perhaps a tiny amount.

ANd for the money.. I'll stick with flooded wet.

I might that "Charge 'em faster" is ONLY lifeline and frankly I can't pump out enough amps to meet Lifelines requirements if I have more than one pair GC-2 (230 amp hour with my current DEKA G-20s)


Home is where I park it.

You may want to check with your local golf car dealers to see if they are a Trojan dealer. The Trojan site will show the dealers in your area.

Current price at my golf cart dealer in Charlotte for the T105s is $124 + tax and exchange. Last time I bought 2 of them there, they threw in a removable Trojan lifting strap. You really need that to deal with them.

I got these about a year ago. I have the Iota DLS-55 Power Converter/Battery Charger. I immediately added the plug-in Iota IQ4 Automatic Charge Controller as I leave the RV plugged in most of the time. Even so, when I checked the water last fall it was way down and took a lot of distilled water.

Now I am no battery expert but I think you are missing one thing here. That is Flooded batteries top off a lot slower than AGM batteries. So your standard converter will top of your AGM's in 5 hours vs 12 to 15 hours to fully top off a Flooded battery. This is obviously huge with solar but no small issue if charging with a converter either.

Now can someone with more no knowledge tell me if I am on the right track here or not?
