    Re: Aux Battery and Alternator Output

    This is not the real eletrickery involved, but just for some understanding:

    I = V / R

    In this case assume:

    Battery is very flat = 12V

    Alternator can supply 14V regardless of current load

    Some misconceptions here

    See the formula :

    V=emf−Ir

  23. Re: One for the battery gurus. Lead Crystal/ AGM

    Ok lets try answer

    2 x 105Ah Dixons = R5000
    Mofdifications = max R600
    Roud up to R6000
    That results in 6000/200 = R30/Ah

    2 x Optima 75Ah = R14000 !!!
    That results in R93/Ah
