I personally wouldn't charge them that high daily. Theres no need for it, and unless your slamming your system allll day then the batts will just be getting over charged for long periods of time while driving for no reason.

I know certain cars pcm purposefully drops the batt charging voltage to 13.5 ish at times and thats to preserve battery life over the long haul.

I know that over charging xs batts is bad because if you cause any of the sealed gases to escape, they obvi dont come back and the batt is toast. I dont know at what poiny or extreme that happens though.

If you want a fraction more power at a show or are just trying to top em up etc before a burp sure go for it.

Errrryday, whats the point besides slowly mauling your batts?

Never understood the boner with charging so high. I wouldn't go that high for daily

IMO keep it around the 14.2v range for daily. Lower if it's hot out.

Thanks guys others have said they have charged that high for years with no sort of issues but idk if its really worth it

agm batts vent around 14.6-ish volts. i dont remember the exact number, but it was around high 14's.

ed did a video on it i think.

Venting voltage depends on battery temperature ;)
