2 stage vs. 3 stage charging
I purchased a new set of batteries this summer and want to get the longest possible life, of course. I am experimenting with setting the charger to 2-stage during storage between trips. My idea is that an occasional charge would be easier than constant trickle charge. I began using 2-stage on our summer trip to Utah where daily temps were over 100 degrees, and battery temps were even higher. The hope then was to keep that batteries cooler by not trickle charging (we were on shore power).
Any opinions or experience out there?
