Charging batteries
« on: September 28, 2021, 07:20:39 PM »
I have a two battery system. One house battery and one starter, separated by a blue seas battery combiner. I have a xantrex charger and a xantrex monitor. If my battery’s get run down and I charge them by running the boat I get a 100% charge but if I plug the boat in at home I am not getting a full charge. Any ideas as to why? I am baffled

Maybe Dan Boccia will respond... Dan?  Any ideas?

You can post the question on our Facebook site too, I believe ...

Is the charge profile different maybe on your shore vs alternator charging? If the shore profile had a lower voltage cutoff that could explain it, I am not familiar with that charger or setup though, but I would start by looking around at that. It seems that there has to be some difference between how those 2 things are pushing voltage into the battery.
