[EVDL] Buddy pairs AGM & Floodie

639 Views 0 Replies 1 Participant Last post by  EVDL List
Hi All,

I'm no battery chemist or charging expert. But I've been thinking of
running two strings in parallel, an AGM string and a floodie string,
figuring the AGM's would get me some acceleration, the floodies would get me
more range. But I haven't found much data on how the two strings would
interact with each other.

Now I'm wondering if it would work better if I paired a 12 volt AGM and a 12
volt (or two 6 volt) floodies as a buddie pair, and then charged them with
AGM type battery management? If a 12 volt floodie were paralleled with a 12
volt AGM, and charged as one battery like an AGM, what would be the impact
on the floodie?
