AGM & Firefly Battery Bank Mounting

Question:

Thank you for the great seminars at the Seattle Boat Show!  How do you fasten a Firefly battery to a wood panel floor in the battery compartment? I’m looking to replace my flooded lead acid batteries and also remove the plastic boxes the batteries are in.  - Josef

Answer:

Hi Josef, here's my suggestion on how to properly fasten a AGM (including Firefly) battery bank to a plywood floor on a boat. First you should fasten some "L" aluminum around the battery bank. These "L" brackets will prevent the battery banks from moving around. Next, you'll need to install some pad eyes and heavy duty ratchet straps so that the batteries cannot move vertically. - Jeff
