This workshop will cover proper deep cycle battery bank sizing and selection for marine applications as well as discussing the use of various battery types (flooded, AGM, GEL) in the marine industry. We will review general battery installation procedures and demonstrate the necessary maintenance steps to check battery health, maintain battery capacity and cycle life. We will answer common questions, provide troubleshooting tips and explain how to identify battery-related issues early on to avoid premature cell or battery failure. Seasonal users will benefit from useful tips and recommendations for battery preparation and storage in the off-season.
