 +> > Charging lead acid batteries is not something that you decide to do, or start or stop. The old statement, "I need to idle the engine for a few minutes to "top off" the batteries."​ is a prescription for turning expensive batteries into paper weights. You want a system that puts the batteries on charge automatically,​ every time there is even a single ray of sun or that your engine is running -- DiploStrat((https://​expeditionportal.com/​forum/​threads/​dual-battery-system-with-ctek-d250-not-charging-battery-over-12-volts.174927/​post-2342346))

 >  The Shunted battery monitors are great, when they are wired up properly, set up properly, and rezeroed occassionally. The person who can do this well, can also make an accurate guess as to state of charge, if they are regularly looking at just a voltmeter and an ammeter. -- sternwake((https://​vandwellerforum.com/​showthread.php?​tid=673&​pid=11316#​pid11316)) >  The Shunted battery monitors are great, when they are wired up properly, set up properly, and rezeroed occassionally.
