Q & A


I have 4 leisure batteries and 1 starter battery all wet cell. They are all 4 yearys old and in good condition, will recharge within 5 hours when cruising.
I have a 4 stage victron 60 amp charger which is connected to 230volt mains when in the marina. I do not use my boat from November to April so should,I leave my batteries on charge throughtout this period or should I take them of charge now and then,I always visit the boat about three times during this period of none use and could alternate the charging periods.

WW says:

The Victron charger will trickle charge the batteries and keep them in good condition if you leave it switched on whilst the boat is unused. A multi stage charger monitors the state of charge, and adjusts the current as required, with no danger of damaging the batteries. Just leave it switched on to do the job.
