    Mike,

    You can't have both removable caps and sealed, can you? If the caps come off, they are not AGMs.

    Those are the senior technology, what are called "flooded" lead acid batteries. As long as you make sure they are watered as necessary, they are probably the best for simple charging systems, and certainly the best value out there.

    Talked with Rod today, got everything sorted out. He missed shipping my remote with the first order, so that came in yesterday. So I think after one more trip to the boat I'll have the charger install complete.
