I want to fit two lithium batteries, I have a solar charger that fits the bill but have yet to sort out alternator and mains chargers.
As yet I have not had a issue, when I go on a club site, mains hook up, its showing a 10 amp charge to the batteries, when they are fully charged, it drops to about 1.5 amps automatically. On the display panel it shows approx. 13.9 to 14.1 volts when charging at 10amps, drops to 13.3 volts, when fully charged, they've held 13.3volts since our last trip 10 days ago. That's as much as I can tell you at the moment.

When I first purchased the batteries, I also bought a smart charger. a NOCO GENIUS Battery charger G26000 12V/24V 26amp.

Life is no rehearsal.
